Dempo has climbed to the sixth position with 25 points from 18 matches.

"It's the first time we are playing at Fatorda after the stadium underwent renovation and are looking forward for a positive result. The boys are working hard to maintan the winning momentum and are eager to take on Dempo who have recruited a couple of new foreign players and also from Pailan Arrows, are completely new side and much stronger and we have give our best and remain focus till the end if we are to win tomorrow,"Pereira said.

Dempo, who drew with Salgaocar in the first leg, will be looking to Tolgay Ozbey to score goals.
