GAME PREVIEW


Kerala Blasters haven't won a game in 14 attempts now. Nelo Vingada was close to his first win against Bengaluru FC but late goals thwarted the Kochi-based side.

Slavisa Stojanovic and Courage Pekuson had put Kerala in front in the first half but the Men in Yellow would concede twice in the second half. With 11 points from 15 games, the two-time finalists are now second from bottom.

This familiar failing have been one of the reasons for the depressing scenario the Blasters find themselves in. Now, they are set to take on bottom-placed Chennaiyin FC in what would otherwise be billed as a big-ticket clash.

Keziron Kizito and Sahal Abdul Samad had an exceptional game against Bengaluru FC in the last match with Seiminlen Doungel also proving effective in attack. Lalruatthara will be back from suspension in what will be a relief for Vingada.

Chennaiyin FC got their second win of the season after 15 matches as they downed a shuffled Bengaluru FC side 2-1 with Jeje Lalpekhlua and Gregory Nelson on target. However, the defending champions are still at the bottom of the standings with eight points. A win over Kerala could potentially lift them above the Men in Yellow.

Instead of fighting for the top spot around this time last season, John Gregory's men find themselves struggling to get off rock bottom and salvage some pride as defending champions.

New recruit Chris Herd has come in and done well in defensive midfield. But the fact that Jeje Lalpekhlua has broken his duck in front of goal for the season would be a greater positive for John Gregory.
