Dempo look to log full points

Reigning champions Dempo are set to take on this season’s surprise package Mumbai Football Club as they meet in a Round 19 match of I-League at Duler Stadium, here, on Saturday. Dempo will be boosted with the return of Japanese striker Ryuji Sueoka who has been declared fit to play after recovering from an injury.

Armando Colaco’s side has a lot to do against Mumbai after salvaging a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw against ONGC in the previous round. Despite being far from their best, they have still chances to overtake Churchill Bros and East Bengal. Sueoka will partner India international Joaquim Abranches upfront with Nigerian striker Koko Sakibo, though not fully fit from a hamstring problem. [H]
