Team Mohun Bagan would move to Goa on 12th April for the last “away” game of the season – against Salgaocar. Odafa Okolie – who’s nursing ankle injury stayed away from the practice on 11th April, but is part of the team. The ace striker badly needs some medical attention but the team requires his service for the remaining three games of the season. Jewel, Masih, Bhargav, Chettry are injured as well. The team for Goa includes Shilton, Sangram, Kingshuk, Surkumar, Masih, Dhanarajan, Subhasish, Snehasish, Manish Bhargav, Souvik, Nabi, Sunil, Odafa, Barreto, Ashim, Lima, Jewel and Pradeep,

Rakesh Masih can partner Kingshuk in the defense in absence of Anwar. If he can’t then Subhasish will be the make shift stopper. Nabi and Sur are expected to be the two backs against Salgaokar. Lima and Ashim might operate from the two flanks with Barreto and Jewel as the central midfielders. Sunil can be the liaison between Odafa and the midfield.

Meanwhile IFA can put Bagan’s last game of the season against Prayag United at Siliguri. There is still a possibility that Bagan wins the Kolkata Premiere League if they win at least a point against Prayag and East Bengal go down against Mohammedan Sporting. However Bagan fans and supporters won’t be able to make it to Siliguri in flocks to cheer the team thanks to the whims of IFA.
