After playing four matches they now have got seven points with four matches still to be played. They now have to play all their home four matches at Katra, Jammu.
“It was much needed win to keep the momentum going and stay in the hunt for qualification into the next round. We have so far done pretty good job in away matches,” said Lone Star Kashmir FC Ishfaq Ahmad.
“We are now moving back to J&K but have been forced to play our home matches in Katra, Jammu instead of Srinagar. Security clearance for the matches was not given. As I have heard facilities in Katra are not that good, players may find it difficult to play in those conditions,” he added.
