Pune, April 10 (IANS) Air India who are fighting for ninth place with Shillong Lajong, will face Prayag United in the 24th round I-League encounter at the Balewadi Sports Complex Wednesday.
Prayag United have 38 points from 23 matches, but the Kolkata side is part of a bunch of seven teams, all with a chance to make it to second position as only four points separate them, making the race to the end an interesting battle.
Given that Prayag comfortably defeated Air India 3-0 at home in December, the Sanjoy Sen led outfit should prove stronger even though they are playing away from home. Both Yusif Yakubu and Joshimar Da Silva who are in good form will look to wreck havoc on Air India defence.
Since the league restarted, the last week of March, Prayag has won twice and lost once, but they will remember that this stadium has not been a happy hunting ground for them. Prayag lost the two matches they played here this season, first 1-3 against Mumbai FC and then 1-2 to Pune FC.
Strikers Manandeep Singh and Henry Ezeh have been Air India's mainstay and should they combine well tomorrow, Prayag will will be stretched.
