In the reverse fixture, Dabang Delhi thrashed U Mumba 40-24 to take the head-to-head record to 3-12. So, Mumbai will be looking to avenge that loss on Friday (October 11).

After losing just once in their previous 15 matches, Dabang Delhi succumbed to two successive losses for the first time this season.

However, coach Krishan Kumar Hooda will not be fazed by those defeats, as he willingly opted to rest almost all his starters and give opportunities to his bench players with their playoffs berth already sealed.

Hooda will likely field the same players that he did in the last match, however, given U Mumba's excellent recent form and an opportunity to finish top of the standings, the coach might be tempted to use the likes of Naveen Kumar, Joginder Narwal and Ravinder Pahal, who last featured in a match 11 days ago.

‘Sultan' Fazel Atrachali and his boys were in top form last night as they beat Haryana Steelers by a socreline of 39-33. The charismatic skipper led from the front and scored eight tackle points, while his partner on the opposite flank, Sandeep Narwal, too, finished with a High 5, in what was a dominant defensive display, by U Mumba.

The star of the show, however, was raider Ajinkya Kapre, who made his first start of the season and scored nine tackle points, showcasing a host of moves while also contributing in defence in what was an impressive performance from the rookie. With the likes of Abhishek Singh, Arjun Deshwal and Rohit Baliyan resting ahead of the playoffs, Kapre might have done enough to earn himself another start against Dabang Delhi on Friday.
