Dempo SC have returned to winning ways in style with their 7-0 drubbing of United Sikkim in a round 17 match of the I-League in which their two strikers, namely Koko Sakibo and Joaquim Abranches, were on the scoresheet with the Nigerian scoring a hat-trick.

Prior to their win against the Snow Lions, the Eagles were winless for three encounters which saw them lagging behind in the title race. Dempo are currently three points behind second placed East Bengal and five points adrift league leaders Churchill Brothers.

Although a win won't give Dempo the honours to replace East Bengal to a second place as the Red and Gold have a better goal difference given that the game ended in a 1-1 draw between them earlier in the season, Armando Colaco's side will undoubtedly want to keep the pressure on Trevor Morgan's unit.

Santosh Kahyap has been a magician at ONGC FC

Meanwhile at ONGC FC, in a dramatic twist from fighting to move out from the bottom of the table to earning their name among the mid-table teams, Santosh Kashyap has certainly lifted the spirit of the Oilmen and a top five finish looks quite likely if they continue in the same manner.

The defending champions would need to bear in mind that ONGC FC beat Dempo SC by a scoreline of 3-1 in the reverse fixture.


Dempo SC: Mahesh Gawli has been ruled out for at least a couple of weeks with a right knee injury, while Ryuji Sueoka has still not recovered from a muscle injury. New signing Prathamesh Maulingkar could make his Dempo debut.

ONGC FC: Santosh Kashyap might not want to meddle with his winning composition that recently came out victors against Salgacar FC and East Bengal.


  • Prathamesh Maulingkar has joined Dempo SC on-loan from Pailan Arrows until the end of the season.
  • Armando Colaco's side enjoy a better head-to-head record in their overall matches, winning thrice of the four times they played against ONGC FC.
  • Santosh Kashyap has lost only one of his eight matches since taking charge as ONGC FC coach.
