SAVE!!! Machado releases Antchouet, who lobs the ball over the keeper and it would have been a goal had not Valeriano Rebello come to the rescue to clear the ball for a corner kick instead
Five minutes added time
Goal Climax Lawrence
GOAAALL!!!! Nicholas Rodrigues crosses...Climax received the ball, turned and placed it past Thapa. Mumbai FC now lead 2-0!
CLOSE!!! Antchouet heads a Anthony Pereira corner wide
Meanwhile it's gone very dark at the stadium due to the weather, which explains the half-an-hour earlier kick-off timing
The resultant corner doesn't trouble the away side
Churchill free-kick...Machado....tipped above the post by Sawant
Churchill are playing a desperate game now....the players look crowded all around the ball
CLOSE!!!! Thangjam Saran Singh's cross missed everyone, but Kunal Sawant somehow managed to get hold of the ball as Antchouet tries to snatch the ball from the grasp of the Mumbai FC goalkeeper
Churchill Brothers still fighting their way forward to find that elusive equaliser
Thangjam sends the ball long for Al Kaddour...Anwar Ali heads the ball away
The cameraman's assistant being forced to head the ball there :)
Anthony Pereira crosses from the right....a bit too far for Balan at the far end of the goal
Ashutosh releases Orok, Thapa blocks the Mumbai striker...goal-kick for Churchill
Yellow Card Satish Singh
Man down as Satish gets booked for dangerous play
Sawant looked surprised and puches away a cross by Thangjam...could have been an awkward moment for the Mumbai FC keeper
Balan lines up for a volley inside the MFC box....attempts it, but Ashutosh Mehta blocks the shot on goal
Today's attendance is rather poor as compared to the previous matches...only 1,700 fans in the Duler Stadium which has a capacity of 3,000
Machado takes the flag-kick and Al Kaddour misses it
CLOSE!!! Machado sends a inch-perfect cross for Antchouet, but the latter's first touch was a let-down as Anwar Ali cleared the remains for a corner

Churchill moving in swiftly to reply with an attack of their own...Balwant's cross from the left is well-claimed by Sawant
Yellow Card H. Antchouet
Goal Orok Essien Orok
GOAL!!! Just about 30 seconds in the second half and Amiri finds Orok in the left side of the Churchill box, as the latter finds the back of the net at the far post

That was an ordinary performance by the I-League champions, who should have had the lead by the end of the first half.

Mumbai FC on the attack...Valeriano's cross goes wide
That was an unbelievable miss by Antchouet!!!

GOOD DEFENDING by Anwar Ali...Satish sends a long ball to Antchouet, but Ali is well alert
Churchill Brothers are still trying hard to build a solid move in the attack with Anthony Pereira labouring on the right wing and Lenny attempting to link the players around him
The ball is simply moving from one end to the other, until Antchouet and Balwant attempt a one-two, but Anwar Ali stands in their way
CLOSE!!! Balwant Singh fell short of a goalmouth cross by Satish Singh in the Mumbai FC box
