The former Mohun Bagan player has been the best player for the Indian Navy. The Goa-based footballer has the ability to haunt Bagans defence in the upcoming fixture. They were thrashed 6-2 by Mohammedan Sporting Club, but Britto scored a brace for them as a consolation. He's has been a livewire on the wings and was at a significant contributor in all of their attacks.

He had scored a wonder goal in the Derby match in April this year which had knocked East Bengal out of the title race. After a series of below par performance, the winger was dropped by coach Shankarlal in the last match and was replaced by Pintu Mahato. But the youngster failed to replicate his performance this season in the CFL. He was brought back in todays high voltage clash and he has firmly won back the coach's trust.He was flawless on the left flank throughout the game and also netted a brace to keep his team in the title race. Azharuddin Mullick was one of the standout performers for Mohun Bagan last season in the I-League.

Spanish gaffer Kibu Vicuna will be making his debut as the head coach for The Mariners in the upcoming match. Having dismantled the entire squad, the management has revamped it with substantial additions to form a versatile unit. Even though Mohun Bagan won the Calcutta Football League last season, they had a dismal outing in the I-League having finished at the fifth position in the standings.
