Delhi Dynamos play host to NorthEast United in the 16th fixture of the Hero Indian Super League at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.
After recording back-to-back draws in their opening fixtures against FC Pune City and Atletico de Kolkata, the Dynamos managed to register their first ISL win in impressive fashion, easily brushing aside Chennaiyin FC 4-1 in their last fixture.
Considering the strength of their attacking lineup, the Dynamos were expected to score a lot of goals in their games. But somehow that had failed to open up defences, as the Feyenoord-affiliated side managed to find the net only once in their opening two fixtures.
However, they seem to have finally broken their shackles as they managed to record a comprehensive win over a competitive Chennaiyin side, who last night thumped Mumbai City FC 5-1.
Still the Dynamos will be wary of NorthEast United, who have managed to get some unexpected results despite being considered a relatively weaker side in the inaugural season of the Indian Super League.
And Delhi Dynamos boss Harm van Veldhoven insists that his side will not be taking the John-Abraham co-owned team for granted on Wednesday.
"We did well in the last match but it's more difficult to maintain it," the Dutch boss told ISL's official website on Tuesday.
"This team we our playing tomorrow has 7 points and is a good team. We have to concentrate on this game now and react properly after the previous win."
Despite NorthEast United being two points ahead of them in the ISL table, van Veldhoven says that his team are not under any kind of pressure.
"The teams which we have recently played have been ahead of us and we are now used to it," he said. "We have to concentrate on our formation and quality of performance."
Meanwhile, NorthEast United will also be hoping to pick up their second consecutive win following their 2-0 triumph at Mumbai City.
Apart from their home defeat against Atletico de Kolkata, NorthEast United have done well in the ISL so far, recording wins against Kerala Blasters and Mumbai City and drawing against FC Goa.
Despite not having a very strong squad on paper like the rest of the teams, they have a lot of young players, who are very hardworking and energetic. And NorthEast United FC manager Rickie Herbert feels that this has worked out well for his side.
"Well, I've said it before, for us it's a good thing to have young players. I thought we played very well against Mumbai; we came off with a really good result," Herbert ISL's official website.
However, the former New Zealand boss admits that his young team are still learning with each passing ISL fixture.
"We've got young players but they're also very inexperienced, they learn the most with exposure so we will see tomorrow," added Herbert on Tuesday.
Finally, he feels that NorthEast United's clash against Delhi Dynamos will be very interesting considering both sides have done well of late.
"Let's see if Delhi retain their form, they've already dropped four points in three games which is quite a thing to do," Herbert observed. "I think they're very interesting on the counter and I think they'll do very well at home."
