Bagan wins in injury time

KOLKATA: Mohun Bagan scored twice in injury time to beat 10-man Peerless SC 2-1 at its home ground on Monday to sustain its title hopes in the premier division of the Calcutta Football League.

Mohun Bagan scored late goals off its Nigerian striker Subair Muritala Ali after six minutes were added on.

Peerless led the host for the greater part of the action after Binod Bauri found the net in the first session.

Mohun Bagan, which was three points adrift of leader East Bengal, made a scrappy start and missed a number of scoring opportunities with its attack fumbling on the opponent goalmouth.

On the other hand, Peerless set up the lead using a set-piece situation at the fag end of the opening session as Bauri scored off a corner.

Pressing hard

Mohun Bagan tried hard to equalise but failed to get its finishing right till the end of regulation time.

Meanwhile, Peerless was reduced to 10 men in the 86th minute after its defender Srikanta Koley received his second booking of the match.

Muritala Ali finally found the net, off a cross from his upfront colleague Edeh Chidi, in the first minute of added-time (90+1).

The Nigerian went on to find the winner in the 95th minute, nodding home a corner from substitute Snehasish Chakraborty.

The win helped Mohun Bagan tally 37 points from 14 matches to tie for top spot with East Bengal, which has played a match less in comparison. — Principal Correspondent
