While the hosts have won their last two matches, the Kolkata-based side are yet to open their account having lost both their matches in the Airtel I-League so far.
"We are confident after our two back to back victories. We couldn't have asked for a better start," Bengaluru FC coach Ashley Westwood said. "Although tomorrow is a new day, I'm confident that will be able to produce the same result and pocket full points," he added.
Nevertheless, the Englishman pointed out that things will not be easy from here on. "From now on consistency will be the key. We cannot take any Team lightly and I can tell you that even tomorrow's game won't be an easy game. We will have to sweat it out for those three points."
The Coach, nevertheless, is happy with the performance of his squad. "There is lot of competition amongst the Players for making it to the starting XI. All are in good form and fully fit and that's reflected in our results so far," he stated.
For Bengaluru FC, their star performers have been their foreign recruits. Defender John Johnson from England has not only stood like a wall in the defence but has looked dangerous during corners.
He scored in the last two matches and will be the most important Player for them. Australian striker Sean Rooney is also in good form.
On the other hand, Mohammedan Sporting has already received a setback even before the start of the match. Star Aussie striker Tolgay Ozbey is the latest casualty and has added to the injury list.
Midfielder Penn Orji is also not 100 percent fit though Coach Abdul Aziz is most likely to field him against Bengaluru FC.
"I am not sure whether Tolgay will be playing, and Penn is also not 100 perfect fit, but he will start tomorrow," Aziz informed.
"I know that we have not had a great start to the Airtel I-League. My main stay in the defence Luciano Sabrosa and that has affected us," he lamented.
However, Aziz is confident that his Team can make a difference if they can play to their potential. "I would like to congratulate Bengaluru FC for the great start," said Aziz.
"They are a physical team. But we can counter them by moving the ball around. If you essay quick passes you can cause problems and that stays my plan against Bengaluru FC," Aziz pronounced.
The kick-off is at 4 pm.
