Guwahati gears up for the fourth ISL match on Thursday three days after the second match where North East United beat the Kerala Blasters by 1-0 goal.

The home team is taking on Kolkata at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Sarasajai as soon as the clock strikes at 7 in the evening.      

Thousands of football fans from across the north eastern states are camping in the premier city to enjoy the historic match. The football fever grips the entire city after the home team defeated the Sachin Tendulkar-owned Kerala Blasters.

Home footballer Durga Boro strikes no less attention as he displayed a fantastic play on Monday. His fans expects more from him along with the Lajong players.
