Santosh Kashyap is more focused on enjoying the moment that his side is in at the moment and is not feeling any kind of pressure. “I have not set my team any targets. I want them to just go on the pitch and enjoy themselves. So we do not feel any pressure and are enjoying ourselves”.

Both coaches were in bullish mood and were confident that their respect sides will come out of the game with a positive result. It will be interesting to see what a positive result means for the two managers after the game.

Mumbai FC will be looking to make home advantage count yet again and make a statement of intent by beating the best side in the league so far. Despite the outcome tomorrow, there will be few things more satisfying than a packed house cheering the home side on.
