NEUFC take on Chennaiyin today

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, Dec 11: NorthEast United will be keen to get back to winning ways when they face the Chennaiyin FC challenge in the Indian Super League here on Thursday.

The Highlanders have been winless in their last three games and were taken to the cleaners by league leaders ATK with a 3-0 drubbing on home soil.

The manner in which Roy Krishna and David Williams� side exposed NorthEast�s problems at the back, especially in the left-back slot would leave coach Robert Jarni worried.

It must be mentioned that on each of the three times NorthEast have conceded the first goal, they have failed to pick three points.

Jarni will likely be without star striker Asamoah Gyan for this fixture which would mean Maximilliano Barrero would be handed a rare start alongside Martin Chaves.

�Gyan is very important to us but we have many players. I don�t know if he will play the next game but we have other good players in the team,� said the Croatian.

Chennaiyin FC would be just one training session old since their 1-1 draw to Jamshedpur FC. Coach Owen Coyle still hasn�t had enough time to inculcate or communicate his ideas to the players which also means that the John Gregory hangover would continue for another game. � PTI
