The spirits were lifted in the Mumbai FC after last week’s win, but now face an even tougher task against Royal Wahingdoh who have surprised everyone by their surge to the I-league summit this season.

Mumbai FC come into this game having kept back to back clean sheets in their two home games which have yielded four points for the Mumbai outfit. Royal Wahingdoh beat Sporting Goa in their last game after two winless games against Dempo and Bangaluru FC at home.

But the team from Shillong has found great joy on their travels winning all three of their away games so far.

Royal Wahingdoh have some injury concerns with Jackychand Singh a doubt for tomorrow’s game.

Royal Wahingdoh got the better of Mumbai FC in the Federation Cup winning 2-1. Hence the hosts will be vary of the threat posed by the away side. But this will be a totally different ball game with the game being played in Mumbai where Mumbai FC have enjoyed great support from its fans making it an hostile atmosphere for the visiting team.

Mumbai FC Head Coach Khalid Jamil has asked his team to be ‘very alert’ against this unpredictable Wahingdoh side. “They are very unpredictable side. Some time they play low, sometimes they play high. So we have to be extremely alert all throughout the game”.

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.
