  • 86'
    OFF THE POST!!!! Yakubu takes a piledriver from the right side but it comes off the far post before Milagres clears it
  • 83'
    CLOSE!!! Jayesh Rane's cross from the left that missed everybody all but neeeded a tap in by Mumbai FC's Ebi Sukore who completely missed the length of the cross. Relief for Karanjit
  • 81'
    SubstitutionM. Rafi Ashutosh Mehta
  • 80'
    A clash between Milagres and Jayesh...they are okay. No bookings in the second half as yet

    Can Mumbai FC find their way back in this match?

    Good shot by Nicholas and an equally good save by Karanjit Singh
  • 67'
    Rafi heads a Jayesh Rane cross in the hands of Karanjit
  • 65'

    OH...WHAT A CLASH OF FACES!!! Duffy cut the ball past Jhingan who stood in the way of the Salgaocar striker and the two get their faces against each other

    Salgaocar having to do most of the defending since the latter part of the first half
  • 60'
    The hour mark is upon us and Salgaocar have still managed to hold on to their two-goal lead so far

    Sukore takes a tumble in the middle of the pitch and treatment is being called for the Mumbai FC player
  • 52'

  • 49'
    SubstitutionP. Pradeep Yusif Yakubu
  • 49'
    CLOSE!!! A cheeky little pass by Duffy to get the ball on Dudu's left foot. The shot however is not good enough to beat Sawant in goal
  • 49'
    This should be an interesting change by Khalid Jamil

  • 18'
    Calm defending by Peter Costa and Anwar Ali to keep the ball from getting to the feet of Dudu
  • 15'
    Doesn't it feel as if all of a sudden Salgaocar are title contenders once again? If it wasn't for Bengaluru's win over Churchill yesterday, it would have been so much more motivation for the Green and Whites today, not there is any less today
