Thoi Singh: Will fight to win all remaining matches

Chennaiyin FC will play host to Delhi Dynamos FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai on Saturday. The defending champions have endured a horrid season so far and will look to win their last fixture of 2018 in order to boost their confidence before the second round of fixtures resume in 2019.

Ahead of the match, caught up with Chennaiyin midfielder Thoi Singh for an exclusive interview. Here are the excerpts.

What is the motivation for the squad to win this match?

All the matches now are important because we haven’t put in good performances in the starting round of matches. Now, we are out of the top four but we will fight to win all of the remaining fixtures that we have.

What has gone wrong with the team's defence?

All of us make mistakes. So the blame cannot be on the defence alone. Last season, all the players in the team performed well - the defence, the attack and the midfield. Everyone did their job to win. This season, the goals that the defence has conceded are not the problem because all the teams who we lost to have beaten all of us and not just the defence.

Can the team get the first home win of the season against Delhi Dynamos FC?

This season, we haven’t won any of the home matches but we’ve been working hard to get the first win at home. We are playing to win in this match. We are ready for it.

A word on the fans.

We have great support from the fans. Even in away matches, they travel in numbers to support us. It doesn’t matter if we win or lose, they always support us no matter what. We will continue to fight in every match for them.
