VASCO: A six-game unbeaten run has helped NorthEast United reach the cup of qualification to the playoffs of the Indian Super League (ISL) and they will be looking to continue that run when they face bottom-placed Odisha FC in their next match at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.
A win will not only propel NorthEast into the top four, but it will also anoint them as favorites for a playoff spot. Their last three games are against Chennaiyin FC, SC East Bengal, and Kerala Blasters, teams placed eighth, ninth, and tenth respectively on the ISL table.
NorthEast has staged a remarkable turnaround since Khalid Jamil took over as head coach after the departure of Gerard Nus on January 14. IANS
