The Yoddha have a two-point lead going into the break with Shrikant Jadhav top-scoring with 5 points. However, Patna will look to get an All-Out on the Yoddha soon with just a lone mat left on the mat for UP
Patna Pirates are at the bottom of the table with just three wins so far. They have lost all of their previous five outings as they are desperate for a win tonight. UP Yoddha at 7th spot will be hoping to improve their score difference (-68) in the points table.
Pardeep Narwal has been the lone performer for Patna Pirates with 118 raid points in 12 matches. Esmaeil Maghsoudlu has not been able to revive Pardeep Narwal which has been their problem this season. Amit Kumar might get a chance in the starting seven tonight.
Shrikant Jadhav has scored 62 raid points in 12 matches thus far in the season. He missed out on a Super-10 against Bengal Warriors with a point. With the return of Monu Goyat remaining doubtful, Surender Gill would be looking to support Shrikant in the offence.
Jaideep is the top scorer for Patna Pirates with 30 tackle points in 12 matches. However, Hadi Oshtorak and Jawahar Dagar could yet again serve as the corner defenders because of their decent performance against Bengal Warriors. Neeraj Kumar and Vikas Jaglan will be aiding the defence from covers.
Left corner Sumit has been a stalwart in UP Yoddha's defence. Skipper Nitesh Kumar scored his first High-5 of the season against Bengal Warriors and will look to continue his momentum. Ashu Singh and Amit Narwal will once again be the cover defenders for the team.
Can Patna Pirates end their 5-match losing streak? Or will UP Yoddha continue their winning ways tonight?
