Kolkata League champion, Mohun Bagan who are winless so far are looking to collect full points when they take on defending champion Dempo on Friday in the ONGC I-League, at Nehru stadium, Margao.

Bagan, are placed tenth with three points from five matches. They are yet to find their form with the morale lying low without a win so far.

The injuries to their key players has been the main reason for not performing to their potential. But now striker Bhaichung Bhutia amd Habebur Rahaman Mondal have recovered from their injury, it has given stability to the team.

"Tomorrow's match is important, looking at the present situtation. We are winless from five matches and we need to win tomorrow to get out of the situtation. It's challenging to beat Dempo as is a formidable side with quality squad in all department. The boys need to remain fit and organised if we are to collect full points," Bagan coach Karim Bencharifa said.

"Dempo has maintained consistency as they has the same coach and same side playing for last few years and it is difficult side to beat. We need to perform at our best if we are to over come them, hopefully the team click to their potential and come out triumph," stated Bencharifa.

Our team will remain the same that played against East Bengal which we drew 1-1. The boys failed to take advantage of the ten man East Bengal for major part of the second half after taking lead in the first, Bencharifa said.
