KOLKATA, Feb 27: Bolstered by the return of Sony Norde, Mohun Bagan with an away goal advantage will look to make the group stage when they face Club Valencia of Maldives in the return leg of the AFC Cup South Zone playoff at the Rabindra Sarobar Stadium here tomorrow.
Mohun Bagan had rested six of their players for the first-leg fixture in Male with their star Haitian forward Sony Norde also missing in action due to a troubled knee. The result was they were held to a 1-1 draw in the match.
Keeping an eye on their crammed schedule, the Mohun Bagan think-tank had decided to rest six of their key players for the first-leg game.
But tomorrow, Norde will be back while their main goalkeeper Debjit Majumder is also set to replace Shilton Paul.
The Kolkata heavyweights, however, may not include Duffy who had scored in the first-leg and Pronay Halder may also not be part of the 18, while Pritam Kotal and Katsumi Yusa may start from the bench. � PTI
