Guwahati: With four points from five games, hosts NorthEast United FC will be desperate for a win against Mumbai City FC in an Indian Super League match here on Wednesday.

NorthEast have found it difficult to breach opposition defences so far, netting only twice to languish at the ninth position in the standings.

NorthEast head coach Joao Carlos Pires de Deus acknowledged that his team’s inability to score but emphasised that “it’s too early” to write his team off.

“We have played five games but no one wins or loses the league after that many games. This is a different type of competition. Even the team that finishes at the top of the table does not win the league. But, of course, we have to win more games and score more goals,” the coach said.

NorthEast will be without first choice goalkeeper T.P. Rehenesh after he received a direct red card in their last game against Kerala Blasters. But more worryingly for Rehenesh, it seems he has lost his coach’s confidence.

Mumbai will be hoping for three points, which will put them among the top four in the table, having lost to ATK 0-1 at home last Sunday.
