Bagan held 1-1 in Ludhiana!

The former Bagan striker, young Sunil Chettri stopped Bagan from running away with 3 points and climbing to the 3rd spot as he put in an equiliser in the 70th minute to share a point in Ludhiana. Bagan had started off the match with Ishfaq and Bhaichung upfront with Barreto playing up an down in the midfield. The first half was a rather battle of attrition in the midfield as both the team tried to take controll of the match. However, Bagan opened their acount through Habibur Rahman Mondal when he scored off a right footer from inside the box. Bagan were 1-0 in front in the 26th minute. Bagan held the lead till the end of the 1st half. With the beginning of the second half, Bagan opted for a more defensive approach and played in a rather conservative manner and not pushing JCT enough to extend their lead. But unfortunately the Bagan defense, which was quite well holding out the prolific Eduardo Escobar, was violated by the young Sunil Chettri in the 70th minute. No more late dramas in the match, saw the final score card reading 1-1! Bagan after this match are on 29 points from 17 matches. They are 4th with JCT infront by just one point. Bagan have just one more match after this against Mahindra Utd in Mumbai!
