East Bengal do look threatening every time the ball lands at the feet of Ozbey. Another two minutes to go!
90′ +1
Substitution Lalkamal Bhowmick Jayanta Sen
The fourth official that the game will go on for another four minutes. Prayag United bring in Jayanta Sen for Lalkamal Bhowmick
Man O Man! Alan Gow lays the ball for Ozbey whose shot being parried by Mondal and off the rebound his second attempt too is palmed away...Ozbey would be cursing his luck for sure
We don't want another draw today! The momentum shall certainly be with East Bengal after having scored a few minutes back. Meanwhile, Yakubu is being stretchered off after a tackle from behind by Harmanjot Khabra
Yellow Card Harmanjot Khabra
So now we have a game! Who can go on from here and win the match?
Goal Baljit Sahni
GOAL GOAL GOAL! What a classy finish - Sanju sends in a through-ball and Sahni's first time shot with his left foot finds the back of the net. What a response to the critics who poked fun at him last week!
Ozbey collects the ball in his own half and his square ball ends up at the feet of an opposition player
Chance! Malswamtulunga has a crack but his shot goes straight To Gurpreet Sandhu...
Substitution Kayne Vincent Josimar
Could this spell further trouble for East Bengal? Prayag United bring on Josimar in place of Vincent who had a forgettable day at the office
Into the final quarter of the match. Can East Bengal make a come back?
Prayag aren;t willing to commit men forward now. Only four players inside the box from a corner.
Substitution Snehashish Dutta Gouranga Biswas
AWFUL! Ozbey dribbles his way inside the box and his shot lands at the feet of an onrushing Sanju Pradhan who shot the ball over.
RASSAQ! Alan Gow was almost on his way through inside the box before the Nigerian defender made a good last ditch clearance. In the meantime, Snehashish accuses Penn of having elbowed him down. He didn't!
Better! Sanju releases Ozbey as the latter runs down the left flank though his final ball was too weak which meant easily collecting for Mondal
East Bengal need to play more along the ground instead of those long aimless balls upfront.
Substitution Khanthang Paite Penn Orji
Desperate times call for desperate measures. Paite has been substituted wit Penn coming in.
Substitution Reisangmi Vashum Baljit Sahni
Baljit Sahni is introduced for Vashum. One would hope that Sahni would make amends for his horrific overhead kick last week against Churchill!
Substitution Uga Okpara Gurwinder Singh
Surprisingly Morgan has decided to take off Okpara and bring in Gurwinder Singh
Naoba Singh takes a free-kick from near the touchline which is easily collection for Abhijit Mondal
MISSED! Yakubu and Malswamtulunga combine with the latter, with a cheeky touch, finds Vincent as the striker sends the ball over from a decent position in front of the goal.
Wasted! Yakubu does well to control and get past two East Bengal players and release Vincent. The Prayag number nine ends up gifting the ball to the opposition.
East Bengal are giving away possession too easily. Not a good sign for a side which is trailing by a goal.
The referee has been giving atrocious decisions. The ball goes out of play from the feet of an East Bengal player, he awards a throw-in in favour of the Red and Gold's!
It's three goals already for Yakubu in this season's I-League. He just keeps getting better each season.
Goal Yusif Yakubu
GOAL GOAL GOAL! Yakubu scores against his former side. Chinta sends in a whipping ball which was met by Arnab Mondal who headed it for Yakubu to do the rest.
And here we go again!

45′ +1
Alan Gow lobs the ball for Ozbey and before the Australian could get to the end of it, Bello clears the ball. The referee surprisingly doesn't award East Bengal a corner-kick!
Neither team has been incisive in the first half so far. The final ball has been missing. It might take a moment of brilliance from someone to light up this match.
The game has been played at a steady pace..neither team has used much pace in the attacks
A good ball in to Alan Gow! But he drifts slightly off-side. A good opportunity wasted!
Once again a weak long range shot from Tulunga. Safely into the hands of the keeper.
A Powerful run by Alan Gow creates a slight opening. But once again the Prayag defense is up to the task..
The resulting corner is not as menacing as the initial shot! Danger cleared away.
Superb long ranger by the East Bengal captain! May have taken a deflection. Corner!
Both teams with decent openings. But it is their final balls that are letting them down!
The counter-attack presents Tolgay with a pocket of space but the shot crucially blocked off by the diving defender. Danger averted!
All of sudden, there is a lot space in the right hand side for Prayag and it almost resulted in a goal as the pin-point cross eluded the striker by a whisker. Ball safely in the hands of the goal-keeper
A slight mix-up in the East Bengal defence but danger eventually cleared away as the cross just evaded Yakubu's head
A long ranger by Devadas. Struck Well But Just over the bar. Could Have almost given the lead to Prayag!
A good period of play leads to pin-point long ball to Vashum which he controls well initially, only to deliver a wayward cross. Ball cleared by the Prayag defence
What a miss! Don't they hate it when the ball comes off the post... Prayag United could have been leading had Snehashish's header off Kayne Vincent's headed not hit the post
The initials minutes see East Bengal on the attack, but Prayag's Deepak Mondal challenges Tolgay well to win the ball...
Prayag United kick things off...
