After sacking title-winning coach Carles Cuadrat, Naushad Moosa became the interim coach of the club but he couldn't produce anything with immediate effect as the Blues succumbed to Robbie Fowler's SC East Bengal.
This fixture is a must-win clash for both the outfits as neither of the teams have managed a good run of form lately. NorthEast United had an outstanding honeymoon period but things haven't gone right for them since December.
