Both the teams have been somewhat strenghtened by the arrival of a few players from the National Camp.
For Bagan though, Periera's frown has reasons to increase, as Manju, the Indian defender mayb not be able to stand in the defensive wall as he was down with fever and now is not fit enough to play. Bhaichung will feature upfront with Barreto probably. Even the pressence of Lalkamal in the Derby is a doubt.
And with young guns like Tapan Maity, LalamPuia, siting on the sideline for the Derby, Periera is having a tough time to decide upon the starting eleven.
