Riding on a big win against Pune FC, confident Prayag United to lock horns with HAL on Thursday, November 10. The Aircraftmen, losing the last encounter after dishing out a competitive game are looking to seek redemption.

Coming from a big win against Pune FC, Prayag United will be playing with the same 4-4-2 combination - Kayne Vincent and Josimar da Silva Martins on the front and Lal Kamal Bhowmick and Denson Devadas marshalling the midfield.

Lalkamal has been a consistent performer for last 2 seasons, Kayne Vincent to play an important role in Yusif Yakubu absence.
HAL seem to be content with the formation they’ve played in the previous three games - a defensive plot. With five midfielders covering the defense it will provide a solid base, however, the attacking options are limited, with striker Abdullah Hamza often having a lone battle up front.

The worrying factor for tomorrow’s match is the injury of veteran RC Prakash and keeper P Pramod, both the players could not practice today, and appeared doubtful for the match.

Prayag Coach Sanjoy Sen look the least bemused in mainstay Yusif Yakubu’s absence, “we’ve good enough players in the team.” Also, unfazed about missing Abhijit Mondal under the goal posts, “There’s no first choice, next choice in game, players should be competent enough to make it to the team.”
