Mohammedan Sporting 1-1 Mohun Bagan

A resolute display from Mohammedan Sporting saw them hold Kolkata giants East Bengal to a 1-1 draw in their I-League match at the Salt Lake stadium.

Gautam Thakur gave Mohammedan the lead in the third minute, created by a brilliant run from Theodore Sunday.

Jose Ramirez Barreto equalised for Bagan in the 24th minute, expertly converting a pass from Malswamtulunga.

Karim Bencherifa pressed for a win by introducing fresh legs in his midfield, but Sporting held on for a draw. Barreto was given a yellow card by referee Suresh for aiming a cheeky kick at Sporting goalkeeper Achan late in the game. The resulting battle almost turned into a free for all, but was stopped in time.
