Odisha FC

And it has gone on to become worse for the club as the club recently sacked their manager Stuart Baxter after his comments after a loss against Jamshedpur FC. Assistant Head Coach Gerald Peyton, also known as Gerry Peyton, has been appointed as the interim head coach till the end of the season.

While asked about future plans and about the results so far, Gerald Peyton stated, "In the last six games, we're going to show a positive attitude, a determination to win as many games as possible and take the club forward."

He further added, "If you look at nearly all the games we've played, we've been a fraction away (from getting results). It's been one goal in every game and finding that combination to go and win games, I'm sure we are going to find that."

ATK Mohun Bagan
