Kolkata, Feb 16: In a bid to brighten their title aspirations after winning against Churchill Brothers in their last outing, top of the table Neroca FC are likely to field new signing Nick Ward against Mohun Bagan on Sunday, a club official said. Neroca are currently on 31 points from 16 games but second-placed Minerva Punjab FC have played two games less and have 29 in their kitty.

Australian attacking midfielder Ward, who replaced Kyrgyzstani left winger Akhlidin Israilov in the squad, is expected to arrive in Imphal on Saturday morning, the official said.

"It is likely that he will play against Mohun Bagan. The coach has been craving for a striker and that's why we got him for the last few games," the official, requesting anonymity, told IANS over phone. IANS
