UP Yoddha became the sixth team to qualify for the playoffs this season with a win over Dabang Delhi last night. They will be hoping to end their home leg on a winning note while Puneri Paltan plays their final match of the season tonight.
Shrikant Jadhav is the top raider from UP Yoddha with 123 raid points in 15 matches till now. Monu Goyat made a remarkable comeback yesterday with a Super-10 in the offence against Delhi. Surender Gill will be hoping to aid Shrikant and Monu yet again in the raiding as they take on the hard-hitting defence of Puneri Paltan.
Manjeet has scored 115 raid points in 21 matches for Puneri Paltan. Debutant Pankaj Mohite has scored 110 raid points as he could return to the side tonight in Pune's final encounter this season. Nitin Tomar will also hope to end his run on a decent note for the upcoming year.
Sumit has scored 65 tackle points in 19 matches for UP Yoddha in his debut season itself. He has formed a partnership with skipper Nitesh Kumar having 56 tackle points. They will take on the lanky raiders of Puneri Paltan along with the support of Amit Narwal and Ashu Singh in the covers.
PO Surjeet Singh has 58 tackle points to his name in the season thus far. Balasaheb has been in decent form in the left cover. Hadi Tajik and Sagar Krishna/Girish Ernak could get preferred in the corner defence tonight.
Will UP Yoddha register their second win at home? Or will Puneri Paltan end their campaign on a positive note?
