Khalid Jamil’s side decimate Mumbai FC in Aizawl

AIZAWL: Aizawl FC continue their enviable home run as they defeated Khalid Jamil’s former team Mumbai FC 2-0 to climb to the top of the table, at least for the next 90 minutes until the final whistle in Shillong where Kingfisher East Bengal are set to lock their horns with hosts Shillong Lajong. Bayi Kamo’s (65?, 78?) two goals in the second half were enough to clinch the three points for the hosts.

Aizawl FC put the throttle right at the beginning, having challenged Kattimani who blocked a potential goal by Danmawia who received a volley from Rane just a couple of minutes into the match. Alfred Jaryan nearly gave his team a lead when he dribbled the ball and delivered a left-footer towards the net from a few yards outside the box. The ball went over the crossbar.

Jayesh Rane’s shot from 25 yards away after an assist by Alfred Jaryan also threatened the away keeper but the ball was cleared to the fortune of Santosh Kashyap’s side.

Towards the end of the first half, Alfred Jaryan took a free kick from 35 yards. Kattamini failed to secure the ball in his first touch but managed to hold onto the ball just moments before Aizawl FC forwards intervened.

The first half did not see any goal although Aizawl FC forwards troubled Mumbai FC defence several times.

Less than 10 minutes into the second half, Aizawl FC defender Kingsley’s shot from the inside border of the box shook the woodwork. Kingsley had received a well-timed pass from Kamo but his attempt failed by a few inches.

After a series of unsuccessful attempts, the home boys finally secured themselves a lead in the 65th minute. A timely assist by Aizawl FC Midfielder Brandon from the left flank was received by Bayi Kamo who opened the scoreline with a thunderous left-footed shot.

Aizawl FC further doubled their lead in the 78th minute. Al Amna’s pass from outside the box was easily converted by Kamo to increase his goal-scoring tally to four this season.

With two goals to his credit, Bayi Kamo was adjudged with the Hero of the Match award.

After this win today, Aizawl FC are topping the chart with 26 points from 12 matches, continuing their unbeaten run at home. Mumbai FC, however, will make all possible attempts to avoid relegation this season.

Khalid Jamil praised the performance of his boys, “They played a good game. We deserve the three points.” He also thanked the Aizawl FC fans for their support acknowledging their significance in their home wins.

Santosh Kashyap admitted, “The deserving team won.” He also lamented, “We did not have enough time to practise because of the festival yesterday which slowed down the traffic on our way to the grounds.”
