Bhawanipore FC kicked off the ball as the whistle blew. Right after that, in the 2nd minute of the match Mohammedan got a free-kick where Plaza shot the ball into the box towards Chhangte. Chhangte was unlucky as his shot was brilliantly saved by Bhawanipore FC’s goalkeeper Shilton Paul. Mohammedan SC kept the game alive by making short passes. Just before water break, Plaza rolled the ball towards Faiaz who slightly made a touch for a pass to Chhangte. Knowing the opportunity, without causing any mistakes, Chhangte found the net. Bhawanipore kept making efforts to take the ball to the final third, but couldn’t make it most of the time as they lacked creative midfielders in midfield.

Mohammedan Sports Club

The football action continued in the second half, where Bhawanipore kept their hope for a come back. Meanwhile, a substitution was made where young Gani Ahmmed Nigam was brought on in 65th minute. Philip Adjah made an astonishing shot towards Mohammedan goal post but couldn’t go beyond Priyant Singh. Gani Nigam doubled the lead for the Black Panthers in the 67th minute of the match. Bhawanipore tried their best to score goals but couldn’t score any. The defensive-midfielder Suraj Rawat of Mohammedan SC made a good impact in the game as he showed his presence by helping the defence at back and also by pushing forward in the attacking midfield to help the team.

Bhwanipore FC

As expected Mohammedan SC had possession of 54% while Bhawanipore FC had 46%. The number of shots taken by Bhawanipore was more than Mohammedan. They took 9 shots out of which only one was on target. Out of those 9 shots, 3 were of striker Adjah’s. Mohammedan took 6 shots and 4 were on target out of which 2 shots were of goal scorer V. Chhangte who was awarded the player of the match award.

A lot of fouls were committed, too. 23 fouls by Mohammedan while 11 were from Bhawanipore side. Balwinder Singh received a yellow card in BWFC while Philip Adjah and Arijit Bagui received them at MDSC.

I League 2nd Division

After the match, the assistance coach Saheed Ramon said, “It is a special moment for the club as we have clinched the promotion to the I-league. In these situations of pandemic we have given our best to win and look forward to perform even better in the I-League.”

With a win in this match, Mohammedan Sporting Club has already booked their spot in the I-League top tier albeit having a match in hand to play against Bengaluru United FC on the 19th of October. They have topped the table with 6 goal difference and 9 points in the table which is impossible for Bhawanipore FC to surpass who will be playing against ARA FC in their upcoming match.
