Chennaiyin FC reserves beat Mohammedan Sporting in 2nd Div I-League

CHENNAI: Mohammedan Sporting Club suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Chennaiyin FC reserves in 2nd Division League at the SSN College Ground here on Wednesday evening.

The Black Panthers extended their winless steak to five matches.

The visitors started to get a foothold in the contest after a cagey opening, as Fikru Lemessa, Wael Ayan and Dipendu Dowary all drew routine saves out of Chennaiyin custodian Samik Mitra.

Fikru had a close chance on the 20th minute, but Samik was equal to the task by palming his long-range strike behind the goal.

Chennaiyin took the lead in the 35th minute through Prasenjit Chakraborty. The striker skipped past defender Dalraj Singh before slotting past the on-rushing Subham Roy with a low shot at the near post.

Coach Biswajit Bhattacharya introduced Tirthankar Sarkar for Ainish Zamadar midway  through the half to show the club’s intentions by bringing in a midfielder for a defender.

Mohammedan SC, who are on fourth place in the log with 9 points from 7 matches, will play their next match against second placed Bengaluru FC "B" on Sunday at Bangalore Football Stadium.
