Kolkata, Feb 19 Mohun Bagan will be hoping to return to winning ways when they host defending champions Bengaluru FC in a crucial I-League match at the Salt Lake Stadium here on Friday.

Mohun Bagan played out a 1-1 draw against fierce rivals East Bengal Tuesday and are still unbeaten in the league having collected eight points from four matches.

Mohun coach Sanjoy Sen said his team will adopt an aggressive approach to collect three points at home and hinted at making a couple of changes in the starting 11 against Bengaluru.

"Midfielder Denson Devadas has played several games consecutively and he will be rested tomorrow since we have two away matches coming up next. I have talked to him about this," the coach said after the pre-match practice session Thursday.

In Denson's absence, medio Sehnaj Singh is expected to start while left-back Dhanachandra Singh is expected to play despite picking up a head injury against East Bengal.

Bengaluru FC have 10 points from six matches and will be missing the services of central defender Curtis Osano, who is suspended after being red carded in the last match against Shillong Lajong.
