Hopeless Delhi will look to save pride as they will make a visit to the Highlanders at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium on Thursday, 7th February.
NorthEast has been in their best form in this season, dominating almost every team. Although the side has faced 2 defeat out of their previous 3 outings, NorthEast scored 23 points from 14 games and currently ranks fourth. The win against Delhi will promote them one step ahead leaving Goa behind. Eelco Schattorie’s side has a full squad available and the only possible rotation is of Pawan Kumar instead of TP Rehnesh.
While Delhi on the other side will play to save their pride. They faced 7 defeats and a ticket out of the semis, but this has led to building enough confidence to grab 7 points from the last 3 games. Delhi has garnered 11 points and currently stands on 8th position has become a trouble to those teams who are fighting it out for play-offs.
NorthEast: Pawan Kumar, Reagan Singh, Mislav Komorski, Mato Grgic, Robert Lalthamuana, Jose Leudo, Lalthathanga Khawlhring, Federico Gallego, Rowllin Borges, Redeem Tlang, Bartholomew Ogbeche.
Delhi: Francisco Dorronsoro, Rana Gharami, Gianni Zuiverloon, Marti Crespi, Narayan Das, Marcos Tebar, Bikramjit Singh, Nandhakumar Sekar, Rene Mihelic, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Daniel Lalhlimpuia.
NorthEast definitely stands a chance to win this one and boost a rank higher.
