”We showed our mental strength today – commented coach Leonard Pavel – loosing the lead and then lagging behind. We didn’t give-up and made a well deserved comeback to win the game. Leading the league? Yes we are now the leaders of the league but that doesn’t mean anything because nothing has been won yet. We are not even halfway through the season and we also have a tricky cup fixture coming up and its a must win match for us. So we have to keep our concentration and not to look at the table too much. We should rather look at our next opponents for weaknesses”
The coach seems to have got the players right under control because it is indeed a tough week coming up for Langer House as they travel to Kolkata for the fifth round of Indian Cup against BLACK ALLIANCE-’endecy of century’ on Wednesday.
