Midfielders Jackichand Singh, Alex Lima, and Aitor Monroy have been working well to create chances for the team. They have the prolific goal poacher Nerijus Valskis as a target man up ahead.
Owen Coyle will hope his team is able to put its defensive frailties behind when it faces the in-form attacking line of ATK Mohun Bagan. Stephen Eze and Peter Hartley are the keys in their backline, who will hope to contain the dangerous Roy Krishna.
ATK Mohun Bagan Preview
ATK Mohun Bagan are one of the most in-form sides in the ISL 2020-21 with three wins on the trot. Antonio Habas' men have also been the most difficult to score against as the Mariners have not conceded a single goal in the competition. The defensive trio of Tiri, Sandesh Jhingan, and Pritam Kotal have worked brilliantly alongside each other.
The star of the ATK Mohun Bagan squad continues to be the lethal striker Roy Krishna, who has goals in each of their three ISL matches. Habas has rotated the pair of David Williams and Manvir Singh alongside Krishna in the attack so far.
