Karim Bencherifa and Desmond Bulpin would be worried men heading into their teams I-League IV tie on Saturday. Salgaocar, coached by the former, are currently perched at the top of the I-League on 47 points with three games yet to be played while Bulpin's youth development outfit, the Indian Arrows, lie tenth with 26 points and the threat of relegation looming large.
"It's a very important game for us tomorrow and the Indian Arrows are strong at their home ground," said the Moroccan.
Bencherifa confirmed that there were no injury worries with the exception of forward Thoi Singh.
Englishman Bulpin's team faced a setback in the most crucial lap of the season with three of his players being afflicted with chicken-pox for a considerable while. They come into this fixture after having beaten Mumbai FC 2-1. "We've dropped four, maybe six points, because of the weakened side. For tomorrow, Shilton (D'Silva) will be out having earned a booking in our previous match against Mumbai," said Bulpin.
