Haryana Steelers will once again step on the mat for their 20th game of this season against a buoyant Gujarat Fortune Giants at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Vizag. Losing in the last raid of the match is always painful for any team, none the less there were a lot of positives for the Steelers from their previous game against Telugu Titans.
After trailing for the most part of the match, the Dhaakad Boys bounced back in the second part of the second half. Trailing 20-29 at one point, they fought back hard and showed tremendous courage to take the match in the last raid. Monu Goyat had a quiet first half but turned things around in the second. He led the team by example, scoring 11 raid points and adding a tackle point to his tally but could not take his team over the line. Vikash did score 7 points, but Naveen (1 point) had an off day which could have helped us in such close matches. All in all, Haryana Steelers need a complete team performance where all seven players give their best and win points for the team.
Steelers have faced Gujarat Fortune Giants twice in this season already, and it is 1-1 for each team. If the Dhaakad Boys play to their potential, they have every chance of winning their second game against Gujarat Fortune Giants who have already secured their place in the play-off's.
