Habibur saves the day for Bagan!

On a day when Barreto was rested and a sick Lalawmpuia was fielded after being medicated, the person who always come up with goals in important matches, Habibur Rahaman Mondal scored for Bagan to extend Mohun Bagan’s lead at the top of the table! The talking point of the match was with Barreto sitting out the match, can the young Bagan side pull it off! Can Dipak Mondal, who came into the side after a long period after injury and national duty, reorganize the defense and lend his experience in the not so sturdy defence of Bagan? The answer to all the above questions were in affirmative, as a Barreto less Bagan created much chances and did score through Habibur in the late minutes of the first half, and the defense did well to hold on to that solitary goal for the next 45 mins. as Railway FC brought in men to strengthen their attack, as they tried to repeat their feat against East Bengal, aginst whom they came back to split the points after going one goal down. The virtually non-existent midfield showed some determination today with Rakesh and James Jr. doing the blocking and Capt. Lalkamal jelling well with new comer Kartick Kisku(adjudged today's MoM) to strengthen the attack along with Mama. A not so fit Lalawmpuia felt alone upfront as he lost his temper and managed to pick a booking will miss the next match against Mohammedan Sporting. The goal came on the 43rd minute, off a corner, which the keeper failed to collect and the ball dropped just in front of Habibur, who taking a sharp turn pushed the ball into the goal. Bagan are on 23 points from 10 matches. Team: Sangram, Odafe, Dipak, Habibur, Mohunraj, Kartick Kisku, Lalkamal, Rakesh, James Singh(Jr), Malsawmtlunga, Lalawmpuia
