ONGC FC - United Sikkim FC Preview: Can Nathan Hall register his first win?

ONGC FC - United Sikkim FC Preview: Can Nathan Hall register his first win?

USFC

In a bottom of the table clash, the north eastern outfit travel to the national capital to take on an ONGC side who are high on confidence after tasting a win in the last round...

  PROBABLE LINEUPS
ONGC FC

Rehensh;
Minz, Gurung, Odeola, Gawas;
Brown, Sangha, Katsumi, Joel;
Lalrinuamana, Kunal

UNITED SIKKIM FC

Ghosh;
Safar, Anwar, Farid, Das;
Attivi, Ansari, Rodriguez, Thupden;
Salau, Nadong


With ONGC FC making their way out of the drop zone for now, it looks as if Santosh Kashyap has his ship sailing in the right direction towards their season end target to finish seventh on the table.

The former Air India and Mohun Bagan coach got off to a point against Salgaocar FC in his first match in charge before registering ONGC's second win of the campaign in their last match against Shillong Lajong FC.

Can Santosh Kakhyap be outsmarted by Nathan Hall?

United Sikkim FC, on the other hand, are not enjoying the same kind of rhythm although they have lost only once among their last five matches played (W0, D4, L1).

Nathan Hall's initial matches with the north-eastern outfit also started with draws against Pune FC, Air India, Churchill Brothers SC and Shillong Lajong FC before breaking down to Mumbai FC in their last fixture.

  TEAM NEWS

ONGC FC: Eric Brown has a slight niggle but will be available for Kashyap's first 11 selection while injured Keniston C is set to miss the match.

United Sikkim FC: A similar line-up that started against Mumbai FC can be expected for Saturday's clash against ONGC FC.
