West Brom forward Adil Nabi, on loan at Delhi Dynamos for the second edition of the Indian Super League, has received full backing from his club teammates as he goes into his first match in the ISL on Sunday, 4 October.

The Delhi side take on FC Goa in an away encounter at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda in their inaugural game.

The Englishman, who was named West Brom's Young Player of the Season in the last term, has already been very impressive with his performances for the franchisee side. The footballer, with Pakistani roots, got on the scoresheet on three occasions for the Delhi side in the pre-season, and judging from his displays, there is plenty more to come.

Former Manchester United star midfielder and present West Brom skipper Darren Fletcher has urged the 21-year-old forward to perform well in the three-month tournament in India, and bring all his experience back to the Premier League.

"Good luck for your debut with debut with Delhi Dynamos, and hope you show everyone the great talent you've got," Fletcher, the four-time Premier League winner, said.

English striker Saido Berahino, who has became one of the top goal poachers of the Premier League last season following his impressive displays last season, also told Nabi to "show what he is capable of, and score goals".

Berahino scored 14 goals in the Premier League for West Brom last season.

Meanwhile, in an interview with the official website of Premier League, Nabi had said that he looked forward to playing in the Indian soil and gather a lot of experience, as he goes forward in his career.

"I will learn a lot of things, not just on the pitch," the striker said. "I will become more of a man, mature, fend for myself out there in a massive country and a big city. I can only grow.

"As a young kid you dream to play in front of thousands of people and with and against world-class players and to be a part of that will be unbelievable. The person that goes out to India will be totally different from the one that comes back.

"What I'll experience, playing in front of that many people and handling the pressure, I think I'll be ready to come to back and play week in week out for West Brom," he added.
