Bagan meet Peerless tomorrow! Sanjeev and Dipak injured!

Bagan tomorrow, after their outing against East Bengal, meet Peerless in their ground. Bagan will miss the services of Rauf Khan, unavailable due to two yellow cards and Peter Odafe owing to injury. Peerless have shown the tendency to stun the opposition after they had defeated Mohd. Sp. in their season opener and had gone in with a lead of 2-0 against East Bengal before the match had to be stopped because of pelting of stones from a section of unruly East Bengal fans and the match was finally called off due to incessant rain. Bagan are on 13 points from 5 matches. On the spitting incident, Barreto's fate will be decided a few days later when the League sub-committee convene a meeting and also the fate of Edmilson of East Bengal who also is accussed of spitting at the Peerless goalie and also of manhandling the line's man will be decided then.

In another development, two Bagan players representing the country in the Nehru Gold Cup held in Delhi were injured. Today during the match between India and Bangladesh, Bagan defender Dipak Mondal got injured. His injury however doesnot seem bad as Bob Houton, the Indian coach commented and he is expected to return for India's next match with Syria.

how can Maria be injured?? He is not even in the squad of the national team and hasn't played at all against Combodia? He was carrying an old injury that's why he was not in the final squad.
