With United Sikkim being relegated from the I-League and then being hammered 6-0 by East Bengal only in their last match, the morale will be pretty low among Nathan Hall's men when they take on Mohun Bagan at home.

Meanwhile Mohun Bagan, having already saved relegation have little to play for too, but would like to continue the good work at the end of the season which helped them move away from the possible danger of dropping down.

Karim Bencherifa started his I-League campaign this season with Salgaocar FC by suffering a defeat at the hands of United Sikkim. He will be keen to change his fortunes against the north eastern side today.
