Bengal Warriors will have to forget their two losses on the trot on their home turf as they look forward to face Dabang Delhi in their fourth game this year at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium, Kolkata.
The Bengal side started off their home leg on a high note after defeating defending champions Jaipur Pink Panthers 28-26 in their second game of the Pro Kabaddi League this year.
With three losses and just a win from four games, the Warriors have to step up their game to atleast stay among the top four for the moment.
They gave a good fight against champions U Mumba in their match on Friday, but the leaders remained victors following a 29-25 result. Anup Kumar remained the star for the Mumbai side who were only trailing 16-23 after suffering an all-out in 32nd minute.
Anup led his side to a massive comeback with ten minutes remaining, after bagging six raid points in just three raids.
Bengal's Nilesh Shinde and Bajirao Hodage held firm at the back and were instrumental in preventing Anup from picking up any raid point in the first half.
Delhi on the other hand will be high on confidence after they just edged out Puneri Paltan by a point in a thrilling encounter in Kolkata on Friday.
Delhi rode on the raids of Kashiling Adake and Rohit Chaudhary, and the former delivered in the final stages with less than a minute to go to tie the game 37-37. Thereon, the Delhi defence stepped up and Ravinder Pahal in particular played an instrumental role in pinning down key Pune raider Wazir Singh in the Pune side's final raid, enabling Delhi to register a narrow 38-37 win.
The Honnappa C. Gowda-coached side have a win and a loss from their two games in the competition this year, and a win in the day against the Kolkata side will take them to the fourth position and push the Warriors down to fifth position.
The match gets underway at 9 pm IST (4:30pm BST).
