Bhaichung may play tomorrow! Ishfaq back on field!

Certainly a double bonus for mariners! Bhaichung who was keeping himself off the field for injury and fatigue, may start off for Bagan tomorrow against Port Trust. With Mohun Bagan needing at the most 7 points from 3 matches, Bhaichung has decided to sit out no more and play his part in bringing home the 28th CFL or Bagan and thus retain the League title. Chances of Bhaichung playing tomorrow and for the first time this season will certainly draw a huge number of fans. Moreover, it was reported that Ishfaq Ahmed who had been out nursing a hamstring injury after the 3rd match, is back and will feature in tomorrow's match. Certainly a good news for Bagan as the midfield was lacking in creativity, pace and experience. Ishfaq is sure to lend all those to the Bagan side. Branco, however, the promising U-19 TFA player is still out with injury and his playing in the CFL this season may not be possible any further. In such a case, he will surely be looking forward to make his pressence felt in the upcoming I-league which is spposed to kick off on and from 26th of the September. The Vice-captain Lalkamal Bhowmick is also suffering from an injury though not serious.
