The defence today also seemed much in color with Sanjeev Maria marshaling defence with Manju and Mohanraj and James efficiently manning their respective flanks.
In the first half, Bagan created very few chances and one of them was scored by Bhaichung when Dharamjit put in a ball inside the box and dragging from the left to the right Bhaichung slotted in a pile driver.
In the second half, Bagan started off under pressure and Lalam was replaced with Lalkamal and Dharamjit by Ishfaq.
Barreto, even though injured played magnificently and ball distribution was simply exquisite but the finishing was just not there with Lalkamal spoiling more than a couple balls single handed.
Almost at the end of the second half, Barreto lofted a ball for Bhaichung who found himself confronted by a charging goalie. Bhaichung chipped the ball over the keeper then placed the ball inside the net.
This was a much comprehensive win and with the inclusion of Bobo the team has certainly taken a turn for the better.
Team: Shilton, Maria, Manju, James Singh, Mohanraj, Douglas, Dharamjit, Bobo, Barreto, Lalampuia, Bhaichung.
