The beauty of the I-League stays the concept of Home and Away matches. For ONGC, Away matches haven't been sweet at all so far.
But Home away from Home has stayed sweet. So much so that they are not missing Mumbai (where they were supposed to play their Home-matches) at all.
ONGC's six out of the accumulated 7 points (from 11 matches) have come at Home - a win over Dempo SC and draws against Prayag United, Mohun Bagan and Sporting Clube de Goa.
And when they take on Shillong Lajong FC in an I-League match at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Saturday (December 22), they will take inspiration from their home-record for sure.
"We intend for a top-7 finish," new Coach Santosh Kashyap echoes.
"One has to be optimistic. Not to deny the points tally reflect a lot different at the moment, a top-7 finish is a realistic target," he adds.
"If you carefully look at the table, there's not much difference between the teams. But yeah, I must admit, the first aim it to avoid relegation."
