James's goal gives a point to Bagan

Not the best of beginning for Bagan as they were held 1-1 against George Telegraph. George went ahead with a 17 minute goal from George foreinger, Salau who scored of a header from the centre from the Bagan right flank. Suman Dutta couldnot block the centre and in the penalty box Salau was left unmarked as Bagan defender Shubashish Roychoudhury fell short of his defensive duties and the Bagan goalkeeper was left in a no-man's land. Bagan created a chance immediately when Barreto flicked a ball towards goal but the George telegraph keeper kept things clear and out of the George goal. Bagan went into the lemon break with one goal deficit and the team screaming for some changes. With an untimely injury in the 2nd minute, Bijoy was replaced with Chinmoy Roy , who was given the role of a central midfielder and he failed hediously. This also resulted in placing Suman Dutta to his not so usual Right-back possition through where George attacked in waves and scored the goal and not to mention Shubhasish Roychoudhury who fell far short of expectations. Bagan came into the 2nd half with much determination and Lalampuia was fielded instead of Chinmoy. Chances were created for Bagan with the beginning of the 2nd half and Lalampuia got some half chances immediately which he should have converted. Atlast on the 59th minute the Bagan coach replaced Shubhashish with James Singh and the former Bagan right out came up with a long shot with his right foot to drive the 64th minute equalizer past the George custodian's left. Bagan pressed on as Barreto managed to strike the post twice. The Pitch was in excellent condition, one might feel a bit too excellent as balls were bouncing unsually high inspite of the heavy monsoon rains and seemed like a match was in progress in the Jawaharlal Stadium, New Delhi. file picture Team line up Sangram Mukherjee Shubhashish Roychoudhury(James Singh) Habibur Rahman Peter Siddiqi Bijoy Basfore(Chinmoy Roy)(Lalampuia) Suman Dutta Dharamjit Venkatesh Lalkamal Bhowmick Barreto Isfaq Ahmed
