An important clash between Mohun Bagan and Pune FC in the 15th round of ONGC I-League ended in a goalless draw.
Mohun Bagan got ample chances to score specially in the 2nd half but no attack has been converted into a goal. In the 1st half Pune FC was the better side in comparison to the home side. Subrata Paul was adjudged as Man of the match. But referee P.K. Bose was not up to the mark. He canceled the genuine goal of Deepak Mondal in the 63rd minute of the match due to some unkown reason. When all the players, supporters thought thats the sure goal, only he thought Sueoka fouled earlier a Pune player. Absolutely strange decision. The gallery of the Howrah Stadium was overcrowded by the mariners but their hope to see the victory of the home team didn’t come alive after all. Marcos, Snehasis both missed some chances from which they can score. Subrata Paul and Sangram Mukherjee both the goalkeepers were outstanding under the post. Specially Paul who was adjudged Man of the Match saved few of the sure shot attacks from Bagan and saved his team. Barreto tried a lot but Chiddi was missed heavily. Satyajit Chatterjee had started with Sueoka in the upfront with Barreto but it was not the effective at all. Then Marcos and Sueoka exhanged their position. Substitution of Isfaq should come much earlier, because after his replacement and Snehasis inclusion there were few good positive attacks from Bagan left flank which could help to go ahead to the visiting team. One more to say that after a brilliant hattrick in the last match of KPL Branco deserved the 1st eleven from the starting of the match, but unfortunaltely he was in the field on the 80th minute.
Mohun Bagan: Sangram, Surkumar, Dipak, Masih, Manju, James (Branco), Lalramluaha, Marcos, Isfaq (Snehasis), Barreto, Sueoka.
