Ricki Herbert commented on the team's journey so far "We've enjoyed been on the road, it has been a good experience for our foreign players to play in different cities. Some of the indian players haven't played in the Ileague and it has been a huge opportunity for them."

NEUFC faced a loss against ATK before and this is their second match against them. When asked whether the upcoming will be a revenge for the NorthEast United, the coach commented, "Revenge! Everybody seems to love the word revenge. But there is no revenge in football. ATK is a good team and we are preparing to do our best. If we perform well we could very well be just 90 minutes away from beating them 5-0. We are focused on doing our best"

James Keene has been one of the fittest players in the NEUFC side. He shared his thoughts on the team "We've got good coaches and the young indian players have a lot of energy. They have a very bright future ahead of them. They have passion and work hard. I am honored to part of such a good team"
