GUWAHATI, Aug 20: NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) will face Army Green in their second group 'D' match at the Indira Gandhi Athletic stadium here tomorrow. The match will kick off at 3-00 PM.

NEUFC were humbled 6-0 by a strong Odhisa FC in their first Group D game and they do well to shrug that off mentally and believe that they can come back to winning ways against an Army Green side with plenty of new faces from last year.

It will be the first game for Army Greens in this competition and if opportunity is given to the side they have the ability to grab it on their day. In the last edition Army Green upset ISL outfit Jamshedpur by defeating them 3-1. Sochin Chhetri was one of the scorers for them that day and he is still in the squad along with the likes of midfielders Alan Thapa and Roel Lepcha among others. Their keeper Roluah Puia has also been a stable influence over the years.

The Highlanders have quality in their Durand Cup side with players like Emil Benny and Jithin MS, their newest recruits from Gokulam Kerala FC, yet to get a look in. Mashoor Shareif is an experienced leader in defence and Nikhil Deka had a great game under the bar against Odhisa FC although the score line does not suggest that.

All in all, it should be a competitive game of football with both sides looking to notch up wins to progress.
