Chennaiyin FC will be looking to convert their chances against Pune City in this fixtureISL's Official Website

Chennaiyin FC come face to face with FC Pune City in a top-of-the table clash as both sides look to consolidate their lofty position in the Indian Super League.

The Abhishek Bachchan co-owned side will desperately be hoping to put an end to their winless streak when they face Pune City on Wednesday, having recorded draws in their last four fixtures.

Chennaiyin started off their ISL season with a bang, registering back-to-back wins in their opening to fixtures against FC Goa and Kerala Blasters.

After that, they suffered a huge 4-1 defeat against Delhi Dynamos before thumping Mumbai City 5-1 in their next fixture.

However, Chennaiyin haven't been that great of late as they have only managed to pick up four points from their last four fixtures.

And Chennaiyin player-manager Marco Materazzi, despite admitting his side could have picked more points in some of those games, insists that his side need to focus on their remaining matches in the ISL.

"It's not ideal but this happens in football. In a couple of those games we should have won three points, but there was one game also where we scored late to earn a point. There is no point looking back now. We have six more finals in the league stage starting tomorrow," the former Italian international told ISL's official website.

Although missed chances cost Chennaiyin FC two points in their reverse fixture at Pune City, the 2006 World Cup winner with Italy is hopeful his side's "conversion rate" will be better in this game.

"Yes, we missed a lot of chances, but the good thing was, we created plenty. Hopefully, our conversion rate will be better in this match," he added.

Meanwhile, FC Pune City will also be looking to better their position in the inaugural season of the Indian Super League when they travel to Chennai on Wednesday.

Despite starting off their ISL campaign poorly, the Hrithik Roshan co-owned side have done well of late, picking up eight points from their last four games.

Given the increasing number of draws happening in the ISL of late, both teams sharing a point each on Wednesday is quite likely.

And FC Pune City's Franco Colomba insists that he will not be surprised if Pune draw against Chennaiyin on Wednesday.

"A draw is one of three results in a match. Football is a sport in which you need one goal to win. But, it's not easy to score," the Italian told ISL's official website.

Still, he feels that their latest signing Jermaine Pennant, who has played for some big sides including Liverpool and Arsenal, may be the one to make the difference at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai.

"Jermaine is a very big player; he's played in very strong teams," Colomba said. "He has the pace and the quality to grow and develop other young players."
