New Delhi: If the underdog Indian hockey team wants to put up a decent fight at the London Olympics, ace drag-flicker Sandeep Singh would have to be in prime form and he knows it more than anyone else.

The hero of India's Olympic qualifiers is confident of a good show and says that he has been working hard to improve his drag-flicking skills.

"I always try to give my best and improve my skills as per the changing trends of the game. I have a feeling that India will be one of the better teams to compete in the London Olympics," Sandeep said in an interview from La Albercia in Spain.

Asked about the team's preparations, the senior player sounded pretty confident.

"We have been doing well for the past six months in the run-up to the Olympics. We have put in a lot of hard work and hopefully, it would pay off when it matters the most."

He didn't seem to agree that the Indians would be under immense pressure at the quadrennial extravaganza.

"There is no pressure on us as we are much more confident of doing better this time around."

While the team's Australian coach Michael Nobbs is eyeing a top-six finish, his key player feels that the "primary target should always be a podium finish."

"The idea will be to take one match at a time rather than thinking too far ahead. We are planning proper strategies for each of our opponents."
