Mohun Bagan manages to get 3 vital points as a Tirthankar cross was converted into goal by Dicka.
However in the game Bagan failed to convert opportunities to goals. In the first half Bagan was clueless in how to operate from the wings.
George managed to defend with 10 men. However in the srcond half after Mehtab and Trithankar were fielded more opportunities opened up. Sourav , Henry and Azhar missed quite a few opportunities. George Goalie played well along with Eche to restrict Bagan in the final third.
Bagan fielded Shankar in liue of Shilton. That gave Bagan defense the much needed confidence and Bagan could go all out considering there is a quality goalkeeper under the bars.
Shankar did well at the dying moments and foiled three George opportunities. The boy should get more chances in playing XI, and must be well prepared before iLeague if Bagan wants to win the tournament.
Mehtab’s maturity has been working well, however Henry and Dicka need to work hard to improve their understanding.
