Kolkata: City giant Mohun Bagan played out a goal-less draw with the NorthEast side Neroca FC at the Salt lake Stadium today. This was the Green & Maroon Brigade’s second back to back draw at home.

In the very first minute of the game Bagan got a great chance but Sony’s shot straight went in the hands of Neroca goal-keeper Lalit Thapa. Though the Green & Maroon skipper played from the start of the match, but his fitness level was not up to the mark due to his injury. A goal from Kromah was denied by the referee due to an off-side. Shilton too made a couple of great saves to ahead of the end of the first-half.

In the second-half the home side started to put more pressure on Neroca but Kromah failed to score the easiest chance of the match on the 56th minute of the game. This was not the last as Shilton d’Silva too missed an easy chance during the 78th minute of the game.

Mohun Bagan got into further trouble when Sony sustained an injury on his left knee on the 81st minute of the game. The medics took him out from the ground via a stretcher, while Azharuddin Mallick replaced gim for the last 10 minutes.  Mohun Bagan is holding the third spot in the table with 9 points from 5 games.
