INCHEON, Sept 22 (PTI): Their campaign of to a rousing start, Indian men�s hockey team will be eyeing yet another morale-boosting big win over minnows Oman tomorrow ahead of their crucial pool match against archrivals Pakistan at the 17th Asian Games here.

After drubbing lowly Sri Lanka 8-0 in their opening Pool B match, India will take on Oman at the Seonhak Hockey Stadium tomorrow before taking on arch-rivals Pakistan (on September 25) and the gutsy Chinese side (September 27).

The match against Oman tomorrow would not hand India a chance to register their second consecutive win in the tournament but would also give the eight-time Olympic champions an opportunity to iron out their mistakes ahead of the high-volatage clash against Pakistan.

Even though India won comfortably against Sri Lanka yesterday, the Sardar Singh-led side were far from impressive, wasting plenty of scoring chances. They even looked rusty in patches. Come tomorrow, chief coach Terry Walsh would be hoping for a clinical performance from his wards and register a win by much bigger margin than what they had achieved against the island nation in their lung opener.

Lanky dragflicker Rupinderpal Singh, who scored a hat-trick against Sri Lanka would be eyeing to continue his goal-scoring spree while striker Ramandeep Singh, who pumped in two goals yesterday, will hold the key to the forwardline.
