“We hope our team will play good football and win three points in the match against Delhi FC. Our fans should come in large numbers, and I expect that RKFC will give them a good show on Sunday. Fans are the backbone of our team and the 12th man for us. I love to see them in large numbers. It is their team, and without them, the team is nothing,” Ishfaq said.

It is for the first time that RKFC has also performed well in away matches. We have so many local players who have also scored goals this season. There has been a huge improvement in RKFC compared to previous seasons.”
