  • 83'
    SubstitutionRahul Kumar Rosario Mendes
  • 80'
    WHAT A MISS BY SALGAOCAR AGAIN!!!! Gilbert crosses from the left to find Karma waiting right near the far post and all he had to do was tap it is, but couldn't reach the length of the delivery

  • 71'
    Micky with a shot on target from a long way out on the right wing...straight to Karanjit
  • 66'
    With the introduction of Micky, looks like Churchill are looking to press forward with a physical presense on the ground

  • 63'
    That was the first real save Karanjit had to make in this game

  • 45'
    Two minutes added
  • 42'
    Arindam goes from hero to zero in a matter of minutes. Can Churchill come back in this match-up? It's been all Salgoacar attack in the last couple of moves at least
  • 41'
    Goal Darryl Duffy
    GOAAALLL!!!! Finally! Arindam has had a good till here, but this time the Churchill goalkeeper spills the ball off a Clifton Dias cross with Duffy in the right place to pounce on the remains and make it 1-0 for Salgaocar
  • 39'
    It's been a game of misses and saves...Arindam with the saves for Churchill and Salgaocar with the misses
  • 37'
    WHAT A MISS!!!! Gilbert Oliveira sent a pin point cross to Darryl Duffy, who was unmarked in the Churchill area, but the later somehow manager to completely miss the ball while attempting to head it to the far post
  • 36'
    Yellow Card Chika Wali
  • 36'
    Yellow Card Chika Wali
  • 36'
    We're yet to see a goal, though
  • 34'
    So all of a sudden there seems to be a lot happening, yeah?
  • 32'
    SAVE!!! Arindam to Churchill's rescue once again...this time he touches his finger tips to send Chika Wali's bicycle kick over his goal

    Satish Singh blocks Gilbert on the other side, right inside the Churchill box
  • 25'
    Good defending by Augustin to stop the run of Barbosa
  • 24'
    Machado is down...not much of a concern however
  • 22'
    The half-time score in Kolkata says Mohammedan Sporting 1, Pune FC 1
  • 20'
    Salgaocar's Rahul Kumar shoots one aimlessly wide...quick to apologise to his team-mates, though
  • 19'
    The crowd meanwhile is still pouring in from all corners and tight places too...on the boundary walls and beyond too
  • 18'
    Salgaocar are missing one player in their midfield - Japanese midfielder Seiji Saito with an injured ankle will be replaced by the club and Derrick Pereira is looking for an attacking midfielder
  • 16'
    Talking about strategies, Wali and Augustin look strong as the Salgaocar center-backs while Churchill's Hugo Machado is not allowed much space to play the role of former player Beto
  • 14'
    CLOSE!! Alesh Sawant's flag-kick to from the left sent to the far post, where Churchill's newest signing Hameed Adesope headed the same back in play, but only for Bineesh Balan to completely miss an attempt to volley the ball before the same was cleared by Salgaocar
  • 13'
    A Churchill corner
  • 12'
    Warning shots fligh wide and high thus far
  • 11'
    CLOSE!!! A good interplay between Francis, who played the ball wide on the left to Duffy, but shot the return above the post
  • 10'
    Cross from the right by former Salgaocar player Anthony Barbosa...headed clear by Wali
  • 9'
    It still goes to see which individuals are making more of an impact than the others for now. Duffy and Gnakpa combining well for Salgaocar
  • 7'
    Rahul Kumar fires it but high and wide
  • 6'
    That's Duffy fouled by Ravanan just outside the Churchill box. Salgaocar free-kick
  • 5'
    The ball possession and impact on the game is pretty much the same from both the teams who have faced each other in the Goa League last month in a 0-0 draw
  • 4'
    Gnakpa doing well to earn an early corner for Salgaocar which has been easily dealt with by the Churchill defense
  • 2'
