Kolkata: Atletico de Kolkata stopper Arnab Mondal yesterday said their team is focussing on maintaining their pole position in the Indian Super League points table.

"After the first round of games, we want to stay on the top. We will not want Chennaiyin FC to beat us and lose our position, having remained unbeaten so far," Arnab told reporters.

ATK midfielder Ofentse Nato said their team is strengthened after the return of their mercurial forward Fikru Teferra and coach Antonio Habas from suspension.

"You know the difference between an assistant coach and a head coach, when he is not there. It is a welcome boost for our side," Nato said.

When asked about the rotational policy, Arnab said they will continue with rotations as it helps the side when someone is not there.

On technology being introduced to help referees take decision, the stopper welcomed it saying silly mistakes will stop with goalline technology.

Nato also supported if saying technological support is needed.
