Sixth placed hosts will cut the gap between them and the coastal-based side to just a point only if they manage to get maximum points. However, the strikers have to dig deep considering the fact that they have scored just thirteen goals this season.

The Dockers have managed to get eighteen goals in the twelve games played but will have to be worried with the defense that has conceded thirteen goals already.

Sharks have won three matches played at home, drawn once and lost as many while Bandari has won just one of its last five away games, losing once and drawing the rest.
