Both ONGC and Sporting Clube de Goa will aim to resurrect themselves when they meet in the 10th round I League encounter at the Ambedkar Stadium in New Delhi on Saturday.
While Sporting Clube will be hoping that newly appointed head coach Oscar Bruzon can turn the tide in their favour in his first game in charge, the services of Japanese playmaker Yusa Katsumi and stopper Hasan Odeola - both returning from suspensions -- should bolster the hosts' chances as well.
"It is a good thing that Yusa and Hasan will be back in the fold once again. Their presence is very much required at the moment," ONGC coach Subrata Bhattacharya said.
"I don't know what went wrong in the last few matches. Maybe sense of complacency after beating Dempo. We also played with ten men in all the last three matches if you have noticed. But this is where the role of a coach comes into play.
"I take this challenge and now we are only concentrating on resurrecting the ship," he added.
