Indian Arrows are set to grab another win when the All India Football Federation (AIFF) developmental side will face Mohun Bagan today here at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata.
Mohun Bagan currently sit in the sixth spot with 26 points from 18 matches, while the Indian Arrows are a spot behind on seventh with 18 points from 19 matches.
"Definitely the campaign has been more successful than last season, we are not concerned about the relegation though we are fighting for it. The boys are only getting better with time," Indian Arrows coach Floyd Pinto said in the pre-match press conference.
"Mohun Bagan will be playing at their home ground which will be an advantage for them, but we are hoping to get the three points. The attitude of the boys is much more positive. We are looking forward to the Hero Super Cup and I am confident with our abilities for the match," Pinto said.
Mohun Bagan will start favourites, however, their record of one defeat, draw and win respectively in their last three games will be worrisome for their form, while Indian Arrows have lost two and drawn one going into the game.
Cameroonian striker Dipanda Dicka's double strike had settled the issue in the first-leg clash between the two sides. Khalid Jamil, looking for nothing less than a win said, "We are prepared for the match. We have to fight as we fought before and will be playing with a good team and the opponents should not be taken lightly. They are young and fight for every ball. This is our last home match of this season and we should be at our best."
Indian Arrows, on the other hand, have exhibited no fear of losing and will look to finish on a high. Coach Pinto could be proud of his work for the season and that of his boys and a win in the last game against Mohun Bagan will be the proverbial icing on the cake.
