PREVIEW

Haryana Steelers come into the match against Gujarat Fortune Giants with an eye on third spot, which is currently occupied by Bengal Warriors. Currently on 31 points, Haryana can match Dabang Delhi and Jaipur Pink Panthers' seven wins this season should it beat Gujarat at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in Delhi tonight. Gujarat brought a wretched run of six consecutive losses to an end with a 29-26 victory over Patna Pirates in its last match. A victory against Haryana will propel it to sixth on the points table.

In the second match of the night, U Mumba has a chance to move up to fourth with a win against table-topping Dabang Delhi, which has won both its home fixtures so far. Delhi, which has played a match less than U Mumba, can reinforce its place at the top with a win, extending its lead over second-placed Jaipur Pink Panthers to seven points.
