Bagan rue missed chances against Port!

Bagan after their invincible run for three matches, today stumbled against Port Trust as the two teams played a goal less draw at the Mohun Bagan ground. Even though the match saw no goals, yet Mohun Bagan came close to scoring on a number of occasions but just could not find the back of the net! Bagan front line with Lalam and Barreto seemed impotent and the Bagan midfield, devoid of Isfaq, seemed like a sad story with a series of disjointed episodes and captain Lalkamal Bhoumick did not help much to the team's cause as his number of miss passes are increasing with each passing match!
With the beginning of the match, Bagan created few chances through Barreto, Malsauwm Tulunga, but failed to go ahead! Bagan had maintained the pressure till the first 25 minutes! But slowly and steadily Port started coming up with a reformed performance! Though Bagan had the upper hand, yet Port gave Bagan pressure in regular intervals! Into the half the two teams went with the Port defense standing tall to deny Bagan forwards!
With the Second half commencing, Karim brought in Lalram Luaha, another U-19 player, with Suman Bose already in the first eleven. The easiest of all chances for Bagan in the match embraced Lalram Luaha within minutes of his arrival, but the young Manipuri was not ready. The chance went begging. Bagan even though had the lion's share of possession and dominated the movements through out the match, was limted to the outside of the 18 yard box of the opposition! Even in the last quarter, Barreto, Branco, Lalram and Lalkamal tried their best to score, but the Port Custodian stood stern! Odafe did come up and tried a few of his headers but to no effect as he lacked direction!
Bagan ended the match goalless with 10 points from 4 matches!
Team : Sangram, Odafe, Anand, Habibur, Suman(Naveen), Lalkamal, Sr. James, Jr. James(Lalram Luha), Tulunga, Barreto, Lalampuia(Branco)
