With 22 points from 14 matches, Steve Coppell's side has peaked at the right time to become serious contenders for the top-4 position. Apart from solving the goal-scoring issues that plagued the side in the early stages of the league, Coppell also brought in the cutting edge feature to the team that was important in converting draws into victories.

They will be up against NorthEast who have 11 points from their 13 matches. With a play-off spot looking very bleak at the moment, Avram Grant's NorthEast would be a team to be wary of because with nothing to lose, they might upset the apple cart quite a bit.

The last time these teams played against each other, they settled for a goalless draw. While the Highlanders would be happy with that result, the league debutants would like to continue their winning streak and cap an important win that would take them to third on the table
