With successive wins in their last two outings, Haryana Steelers will look to extend their winning streak when they take on UP Yoddha in their seventh match of the Pro Kabaddi League at the EKA Arena in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.

Vikash Khandola’s return to the Haryana side has certainly boosted their confidence and the raider would be hoping to keep up the good work in tomorrow’s match.    

Even though the team were trailing for most parts of the match against Bengaluru Bulls on Sunday, they never gave up and fought hard to take home all the five points on offer.

“We have been focusing a lot on our mistakes and making sure we don’t repeat them. In the earlier matches when we made these mistakes, we couldn’t come back. You can expect us to play how we played against the Bulls going forward in the league,” said Khandola.

Vikash Kale, meanwhile, has been exceptional for the Steelers in defence. He has ensured that the opponent’s trump card remains out of the pitch for most periods of the match.  

A win on Wednesday would take the Steelers into the top half of the table with 21 points. UP Yoddha have already played seven matches and are on 16 points and they would also be eyeing a berth in the top six of the table.

“Yoddha are a good team, they are good defensively and offensively, but we have also been good on both fronts. I’m sure the match will be an entertainer. We follow our captain who tells us what to do. Our aim is to get into the top four of the table,” said Khandola.
