Neroca FC will look to build on their win over Shillong Lajong last weekend when they face Indian Arrows on Friday.
Manuel Retamero’s outfit have been miserly at the back having conceded a mere six goals in as many matches. After a poor start to their I-League campaign, they have done well to pick six points from their last three matches.
Katsumi Yusa is back in the fray after recovering from an injury as he provided the assist in the last game for the winner scored by Subash Singh.
A win on Friday will help the north-eastern outfit to make their way into the top three.
On the other hand, Indian Arrows haven’t had the best of campaigns either. In five games, they have only scored two goals and let in nine. Although their performances have improved in their last two games against Real Kashmir and Minerva Punjab, they have struggled to see off teams.
The team has not scored in their last three games which will be of concern for Floyd Pinto.
Often they have been second best against the physicality of foreign players. Coach Floyd Pinto would hope that they can get something out of their trip to Manipur.
