In the last few matches Mohan Bagan has regained their momentum under the guidance of Karim Bancharifa. But the long injury list is really a concern for the Moroccan coach.The news which we have received so far is that, Karim will have to wait till Saturday to final his first eleven.Tolgey Ojbey, Rahim Nabi, Snehasish Chakraborty are nursing their injuries.

Shilton Pal have started his practice and it is likely that he is going to be in charge of the mariners citadel.The foreigners of Bagan are proving to be worthwhile now as Iche is developing day by day and the recruitment of Quintoon Jacob is working in the midfield.Still then like other matches Karim's tramp card will be the Nigerian goal machine Odafa and the young striker C.S.Sabeth.
