Atletico de Kolkata need a striker: coach Antonio Habas

Kolkata: Having suffered a third successive defeat in the Indian Super League football tournament, defending champions Atletico de Kolkata coach Antonio Habas rued that they're missing a genuine striker.

ATK's marquee player Helder Postiga, who had scored a double in their emphatic win in Chennai in the ISL opener, is recovering from an injury in Spain and in his absence their lone striker Iain Hume was yet to find the target.

"It's clear that the team needs a striker. It's very disappointing. We are not in a good position at the moment," Habas said after their 0-1 loss to Delhi Dynamos FC here today.

ATK had earlier lost two matches on the road -- in Pune and Guwahati -- as they now head to Mumbai for their next match after two days.

"We should have won these two matches (in Guwahati and here)," he said on their lost opportunities.

The team is further plagued with injury woes to Arata Izumi, Josemi and the latest on the list is Javi Lara (groin).

"I've not been able to repeat my lineup. We have many problems in my team. We have to recover mentally and work hard, that is the only solution," said Habas.
