Salgaocar FC are placed in Group C of the Federation Cup alongside Mohun Bagan, Mumbai FC, Shillong Lajong FC.
The Green and Whites will have to make do without the services of Karma Tsewang as the winger is recovering from a ligament injury to his right knee suffered in the clash against East Bengal in December last year where he was substituted after seven minutes.
The club's coach, Derrick Pereira, has meanwhile enlisted a number of players who have recovered from their respective injuries while he is yet to decide on signing his fourth foreigner.
"We have short-listed some players (foreigners), but nothing is confirmed as yet," he said.
"Preparations for the Federation Cup are going on well," Pereira continued. "We had some injuries to [Darryl] Duffy and Chika [Wali] in the last match against Bengaluru FC.Milagres [Gonsalves] and also Marcus [Mascarenhas] - all those players have recovered from their injuries, except for Karma [Tsewang] who will be out for the next two months."
