Incheon: The gold medal already out of their grasp, Indian women's hockey team will be eyeing to return at least with a bronze from the 17th Asian Games when they take on Japan, in what can be regarded as a revenge encounter, in the third-fourth place play-off on Wednesday.

The Indian eves dished out a spirited display before losing 1-3 to last edition's silver medallist Korea in the semi-final on Monday at the Soenhak Hockey Stadium.
