Mohun Bagan secured three vital points after the team got past Minerva Punjab FC by 4-0. Duffy and Jeje scored two goals each. Both of them missed few chances and failed to get the first hattrick of the tournament.
Bagan started with Jeje and Duffy upfront, Sony from left, Yusa from right and central midfield with Souvik and Pronay.
Subhasish was back in the team after a match suspension. Edu donned the Bagan jersey for the first time. Anas and Pritam were there along with Debjit.
Sony, Pritam and Edu had some misses , one of Sony’s shots hit the bar, Pritam shot went wide, Balwant who later came in place of Duffy had few misses as well.
However the coach will have to work upon the positions and overlapping of Edu. There were two instances where Edu’s mistakes could have been costly.
However, Subhasish, Anas and Pritam did well today. Pronay has improved a lot and did not commit unnecessary fouls today. Souvik needs to play as per his ability now. It will be interesting to see what instructions coach gives to Yusa to make him lethal like Sony, Yusa so far has failed to become lethal and sharp and has been easily stopped by opponents. His passes also were stopped comfortably.
Bagan will be going to Chennai to play the next game on 21st January.
