Mumbai, Apr 5 (UNI) Second placed Mahindra United (20 points) face another stiff test when they take on eighth placed Air-India (10 points) in a local derby at the Cooperage in the National Football League (NFL) tie tomorrow.

The jeepmen have lost three times to the Airmen in local tournaments, twice by a tie-breaker and would be looking forward to getting their revenge tomorrow.

Mahindras have also not displayed the form of the early season, which had taken them to the top place in the NFL standings and were held to a 2-2 draw two days ago at the same venue by lowly Salgaocar.

Coach Derrick Pereira has conceded that a win in tomorrow's match is important for their title aspirations. ''Air-India is a fighting team and we have to be tactically disciplined against them,'' he stated.

Both the teams have no injury problems ahead of the local derby and would be near full strength for the clash.
