R-3: 28.01.2014: SALGAOCAR SC ---- 0-0---- MOHUN BAGAN - ( FT..)
SAL Press Release : Salgaocar FC and Mohun Bagan shared a point apiece after it finished goalless in a Round 3 match played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda earlier today. With this result, Salgaocar have 2 points from 3 matches whilst Mohun Bagan have accumulated 4, having played a game less.
Salgaocar started brightly and showed intent early on as they dominated possession despite missing several key players to injury. Mohun Bagan settled down after the first 10 minutes and Sony Norde used his pace to good effect to get behind the Salgaocar defence on a couple of occasions but was unable to get past Subrata Paul in goal.
The play was mostly confined to the midfield with Salgaocar content on holding to the ball and moving it around whilst Mohun Bagan used the pace of Yusa and Sony to try and hit Salgaocar on the counters. Hero of the Match, Subrata Pal was required to play the role of a sweeper on a couple of occasions coming off his line to avert the danger.
The Salgaocar defence stood tall barring a rare lapse of concentration mid-way through the second half when Gurjinder Kumar skied a ball after the initial save by Subrata and the last named failed to collect the ball on itís way down only for it to bounce and land up at the back of the net. However, Balwant Singh was adjudged to have fouled the keeper in the process and the goal was disallowed. The Greens exerted a fair bit of pressure in the final 10 minutes with Brian and Gilbert sending in teasing crosses from the left and right respectively that were well dealt with by the Mohun Bagan skipper Shilton Paul.
There were to be no last minute heroics as both sides walked away with a point, the Greens clearly the happier of the 2 camps. Salgaocar FC next face Sporting Clube de Goa on the 1st of February whilst Mohun Bagan head back home to take on Pune FC in what would be their first home match.

SALGAOCAR ARE IN SEARCH OF THE FIRST WIN AGAINST MOHUN BAGAN
Salgaocar to face Mohun Bagan in an important I league encounter at the Jawharlal Nehuru Stadium , Goa at tomorrow evening. Salgaocar are in search of their first victory in the League as they had drew the first match against Pune FC and lost to Royal Wahingdoh in the second match. On the other hand the Mariners won their first match against Mumbai FC 3-1 quite confidently and are eager to earn full points against Salgaokar.
SALGAOCAR ARE IN SEARCH OF THE FIRST WIN AGAINST MOHUN BAGAN
The 2 sides last met in the Federation Cup a couple of weeks ago, with Salgaocar FC having outplayed their opponents 4-1, after having conceded first. Mohun Bagan had performed quite impressively against Mumbai FC with all the departments are functioning up to the satisfaction. On the contrary Salgaocar are yet to prove their dominance as the injuries of some important footballers are a serious concern for Derrick Pereira .
While interacting at the pre match media meeting at Goa Salgaokar coach Derrick Pereira said, "We will be starting with the same 11 that started in the last match against Royal Wahingdoh as our players nursing injuries are yet to recover. We will not press the panic button just yet though, these are early stages of the league. It is important on focusing on getting the basics right and things do fall into place eventually. Football is cyclical, you have the highs and the lows."
Mohun Bagan Coach Sanjay Sen is optimistic for a favorable result though he admits that Salgaokar is a strong side. In the pre match media meeting Sanjay Sen said, "Salgaocar are a good side and they beat us comprehensively in the Federation Cup. However, we faced a similar problem in the Federation Cup to the one being faced by Salgaocar currently and that is finding the back of the net. We played very attractive football through the Federation Cup but couldnít score goals and unfortunately you cannot merely survive playing good football". The match will start at 4.30 pm
