SALGOACAR OUT RAILED EAST BENGAL AT GOA
Salgaocar Sports Club of Goa registered an important win against the Kolkata outfit East Bengal by a margin of 3-1 in an important match at Goa today. With this win Salgaokar climbs up to the third position with eight points from five matches, whereas East Bengal came down fifth position of the League table with seven points from four matches.
This is the second consecutive victory of Salgaokar after winning against Sporting Clube. The Goan side utilized the defensive gaps in the Red and Gold central defense and convert the opportunities. The East Bengal deep defense were rather a mere spectator and hardly had any answer against the team combination of Salgaokar and individual brilliance of Dariel Duffy and Douhou Pierre. East Bengal are playing their second tournament after a set back at the Federation Cup. But the team combination and the cohesion between the departments are totally lacking. Even the footballers are not fit enough to play a ninety minutes football match.
Salgaocar, however, drew first blood in the 43rd minute when Douhou and Duffy combined to create an opportunity for Douhou, who after controlling a pass from Duffy, beat Deepak Mondal with a deft touch and then slammed the ball inside an open goal.
Salgaocar made it 2-0 at the stroke of half time. Gilbert Oliveira essayed a ball from the left and Duffy was on hand to beat his marker Milan Susak before picking out the top corner of the goal. Salgaocar who enhanced their lead in the 65th minute after a faulty clearance from Gurwinder Singh landed nicely at the feet of Brian, who found the mark with an angular left-footer. Dudu reduced the margin for East Bengal when he scored at the 76th minute of the match.

The gap between the central defenders and the midfielders are allowing the opponents to play a number of passes in the danger zone of East Bengal. Mehtab Hossain and Arnab Mondal will be out of the squad as they are nursing their injury. Though the success of East Bengal will depend on their duo Nigerian strikers Ranty Martins and Dudu Omegbemi.
The assistance coach of the East Bengal, Sujit Chakravarty who attended the pre-match conference in place of Armando Colaco, stated "We have been together only since the Federation Cup but we have made a good start after we drew our first match here in Goa.
Salgaokar after having a slow start in the League, won the last match against Spoting Clube by a brace. Deerick Perira's target is to earn full points against East Bengal and advance further in the league table. Salgoacar are currently placed at the fifth position from four matches are playing as a unit since from the beginning of the season. Deerick Perira depends a lot on Dohu Peire the striker from Ivoty Coast, who has the capability to transform the game at any point of time.
Salgaokar's coach while interacting at the pre match press meeting said, "East Bengal have a very strong side despite the injuries and by far the best strike force in the country. We will have to be at our absolute best, specially in defense and give it over a 100% to come out with a result. "We have improved with every passing game I'm happy to have got some points on the board given the number of players we have missed through injury".
