United Sports Club once again failed to bag all three points from a home match, as they played out an insipid 0-0 draw against a young Dempo outfit in the Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday evening. The match marked the debut of Abhijit Das between the sticks, while C.K. Vineeth was dropped as Mohammed Rafique was employed in the hole just behind the strikers Eric Brown and Ranti Martins.

United had the first chance, when Ranti Martins went very close to scoring when the match was only four minutes old, but his effort failed to find the back of the net. A brilliant link-up between Souvik and Eric had created the chance but Ranti failed to slot it home.

In the eleventh minute of the match, Eric unleashed a brilliant strike, which left Kattimani clueless, but the ball went out rattling the crossbar. Dempo also a good chance, when Abhijit flapped away a free-kick only to guide it in the way of young Pronay Halder but the youngster failed to open his account.

Abhijit also had a hard time dealing with a cross in the ending minutes of the second half, when he misjudged a Dempo cross, but his alacrity saved the day for his team. With the deadlock yet to be broken at the end of the first half, Eelco Schattorie changed his tactics a little and brought in C.K.Vineeth in place of Mohammed Rafique.

The performance of the home team was much better in the second half, with Eric, ranti and Vineeth all having their shares of chances. In the 78th minute, Dhanachandra Singh found himself with the ball at the edge of the 6-yard box, but his shot was held well by Kattimani, the travelling goalkeeper who was on top the things.

In the 85th minute, Ranti had placed a brilliant ball to the box, but Vineeth's shot was saved well by the goalkeeper again. The match ended with the same scoreline as well. "In the situation we are in, I am happy with one point," Eelco said after the match. Man of the Match awarded Eric Brown for United SC.

Shillong Lajong FC pick up their third win away from home as they beat reigning I-League Champions, Churchill Brothers SC by one goal in Mapusa, Goa during the 14th matches in the I-League. Cornell Glen scored the solitary goal for the visitors helping his team to make it two wins in a row this month.

SLFC PRESS RELEASE : The game was favourable for Shillong Lajong FC as they were on a high note and looking to carry their form from their last game but it was the home team who had a bright start creating a lot of chances. Balwant Singh was closest to scoring after his shot in the 30th minute hit the post and Shabana's rebound was put wide. Shillong Lajong had their prolific striker Cornell Glen back from injury but they were still missing the services of Captain Minchol Son and Brazilian striker Uilliams Souza Silva. The first half ended with much to think for Thangboi Singto's men.

The visitors started the second half on a much better note than the first, creating more chances and holding better possession. Churchill Brothers still kept threatening in the second half, looking for the opening goal but it was the visitors who scored against the run of play. Cornell Glen found his 8th

Seikhohao Tuboi was converted by the Trinidad and Tobago striker. The Red's attack was given a much needed lift after the goal as man of the match Taisuke Matsugae spearheaded the Lajong attack. The Reds almost lost their lead in the 84th shot was cleared brilliantly off the line by Lalchhuanmawia Fanai. However the home team could not find a late equaliser as the final whistle went in favour of the visitors.

The win thus catapulted Shillong Lajong FC into third place in the I-League table with 20 points from 13 games. Churchill Brotherís title defence has now turned into a fight for survival as this loss puts them in the bottom of the table with only 7 points from 12 games.
