After suffering heavy defeat in their previous matches, both  Chennaiyin FC  and  Odisha FC  desperately need a win to stay in contention for a playoff spot when they meet in the crucial Hero ISL match at the Tilak Maidan on Wednesday.

Odisha, placed seventh with 21 points from 16 matches, still nurtures a slim chance of entering the play offs if it beats the struggling Chennaiyin side, which is placed a rung below with 19 points from 16 matches.

Odisha coach Kino Garcia said his team has recovered from the big loss to Mumbai City FC (1-4) in the previous match at Fatorda.

The form of striker Jonathas, who has scored in four straight games, is encouraging and Odisha will be looking to convert the chances, something which it failed to do against Mumbai.

Former champion Chennaiyin suffered its heaviest defeat in the league when it was drubbed 5-0 by FC Goa in the last league match. The heavy defeat resulted in the sacking of coach Bozidar Bandovic and appointment  of Sabir Pasha as interim coach.

Pasha has an onerous task of lifting the morale of the side and to break the winless streak. This season, Chennaiyin has managed to score only 14 goals, the lowest among the 11 teams, and has not scored in three of its last four matches.

"It is a challenge for me. My task will be to get the team together and get the best out of the players,’’ he said.
