So, it can be presumed that the tension and excitement of the all important Derby match at the flag end of the season are going to be at it's peak.

The ball possession are quite even all through the 90 minutes, but what is important is that, the mariners capitalized the opportunities which is reflecting in their result. In fact the United Sports club controlled their mid field leading by Lalkamal Bhowmick but unable to open the goal mouth which had been recorded negatively during the course of the match.

The duo United striker Vincent and Md Rafiq failed to capitalize the opportunities. In some occasions it has been observed that they are quite casual in their approach within the 18 yards. There was no such attack or shot at the goal which could yield any danger at the Mohun Bagan citadel. The absence of Ranty Martins(who was out of the squad for card offence) and Carlos Harnendez (who already left India)were felt.

Mohun Bagan scored their first goal in 38th minute of the match. The young star Manish Bhargav dribbled past dangerously from the right and sends a pass to Odafa who made no mistake to convert. The ball was rebounded back to Odafa from the United goalkeeper Subrata Pal.Manish Bhargav is proving to ability and importance day by day as he had worked tirelessly in the middle third area and sends a number of passes to Odafa and Tolgey.

In the 79th minute Odafa dribbled pass two of the United defender in sheer speed and places the ball to the left of Subrata to give the mariners the 2-0 lead. The Nigerian goal machine completed his hatrik at the 85th minute by converting a spot kick. Odafa was tackle inside the 6 six yards by Bello Razak which was adjudged illegal by the match official Ranjit Bakshi. With this hatrik Odafa touched a record of Dipendu Biswas of scoring hatrik against the United Sports Club.

Lalkamal Bhowmick and Quinton Jacob were shown the red card by the referee and sent off at the dying stages of the match and these two players will be out of the match against East Bengal.
