The Economic Times - - Sports -

Still smart­ing from their shock de­feat against Aizawl FC, de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Mo­hun Ba­gan will look to bring their cam­paign back on track when they face arch-ri­vals East Ben­gal in the I-League derby at the Kanchen­junga Sta­dium here on Satur­day. Placed at the top, Mo­hun Ba­gan (25) are three points clear of sec­ond placed Ben­galuru FC while East Ben­gal have 20 points. Hav­ing played 11 matches, the green-and­ma­roon suf­fered their first de­feat of the sea­son when they lost to debu­tants Aizawl FC in Mi­zo­ram. Norde is back but did not prac­tice on Fri­day and is a doubt­ful starter for the much-an­tic­i­pated re­turn leg derby. "I don't know about his fit­ness. I will speak to him later in the evening and will de­cide on the com­bi­na­tion," coach San­joy Sen said.
