Lady luck dump Bagan!

One might say its sheer ill-luck for Bagan not to have won the match against Dempo as they did everything except scoring and came too close to scoring on 3 occasions but twice denied by the post.
After a few jittery performances in the first few matches, Bagan today seemed like a team and was playing with much determination. But the problem persisted, the Defence. Everyday a new set of defenders...well almost.
Manju was defending along with Siddique, with Shubhashish Roychowdhury and Mohunraj taking care of the flanks. Douglas was given the responsibility of a defensive midfielder and as usual he failed hideously. He kept scampering across the turf with a handful of wrong passes.
Bhaichung was upfront with Barreto and Dharamjit, Bobo, James supplying them with the balls.
Mohunraj also swept in decent crosses from the left.
Bagan conceded an early goal through Nicholas Borges so Bagan put on the pressure and created a few chances but failed to convert. Even Dempo counter attacked but they were either misappropriated or foiled by the defense and an in form Shilton Paul.
Late in the second half, Bhaichung hit the upright off a Mohunraj throw in.
In the second again Bagan took the game to the other side and again Barreto hit the bar and the ball dropped on the goal line and an advancing Bhaichung failed to put it in.
Dempo had their share of missed opportunities and late in the game, Bhaichung failed ti slot in a lovely cross sent in by Lalam. Bhaichung only had the goalie to beat.
Bagan are now on 4 points from 5 matches.
