Mumbai: JCT Phagwara would look to revive their campaign, gone awry after a dream start, as they face a rejuvenated Mumbai Football Club in the seventh round I-League match at the Cooperage here on Sunday.
The clash will be a tough test for newly appointed coach Parminder Singh, who has taken over the reigns of the Punjab team after Sukhvinder Singh’s exit.
“We are confident of a good match and all the players apart from the suspended ones are fit and raring to go,” the JCT coach said.
The visitors, who have nine points from six matches, will miss the services of Jagpreet Singh and Sunil Kumar, who will be out due to double booking, and Jaspal Singh, who has chosen to stay back due to injury.
The local outfit is in high spirits having upset Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan in their own backyard and stolen a point from Air India when from the brink of defeat in their previous two matches.
“Our boys have gained a lot of confidence after the last win. And we would surely want to maintain their confidence and carry it forward against JCT. I’m glad that Kayne Vincent will be back for the next match,” Mumbai FC coach Khalid Jamil said.
The home team currently has six points from as many matches.
