Mohun Bagan defeat JCT in I-League match
Sunday, May 22, 2011
Mohun Bagan defeated JCT 2-0 in an I-League match that played in Salt Lake Stadium this evening. After a barren first-half, Man-of-the-Match Satish Kumar and Ashim Biswas scored one apiece in the 60th and 69th minute respectively to seal it for the home team. The result takes Mohun Bagan to the 5th spot with 34 points from 25 matches while JCT languish in the relegation zone with 24 points from 25 matches. Bagan should have taken the lead in the 30th minute but striker Muritala Ali’s shot hit the upright. Barely a minute after, JCT custodian Naveen Kumar dived full length to deny Chidi Edeh from a curling free-kick.

Changing over, both teams played attacking football. However, it was Bagan who took the lead in the 60th minute through Satish’s left-footer beating Navin to bulge the net. Ashim Biswas doubled the lead in the 69th minute when the JCT defenders muffed it up. The porous defence failed to clear a harmless Anwar Ali pass and an unmarked Ashim Biswas did the rest. Left with no option, JCT made three changes in quick succession but the Bagan defence did quite well to maintain their lead till end of the match.
