Chencho Gyeltshen’s solo goal seals the victory for RoundGlass Punjab FC

A superb solo run and finish by Bhutanese forwards Chencho Gylteshen helped RoundGlass Punjab FC (RGPFC) beat Aizawl FC 1-0 and secure all three points

RGPFC remains in second place with this win on the head-to-head record along with Sreenidi Deccan.

RGPFC coach Staikos Vergetis made three changes to the starting lineup bringing in Chencho Gyeltshen, Freddy Lallawmawma, and Abhishek Singh instead of Juan Carlos Nellar, Khaimingthang Lhungdim and Brandon Vanlalremdika. Aizawl FC coach, Caetano Pinho fielded his strong side in their home ground looking to create an upset in the match.

Aizawl FC started the first half by attacking the RGPFC box with a couple of good crosses. RGPFC quickly started to take control of the possession and played better football in half but could not convert the possession into clear-cut chances. Both teams struggled to find openings in the final third as they could not register even one shot on target in the first half.

RGPFC started the second half with more vigor by pressing the Aizawl midfield and showing intensity going forward. They were rewarded in the 53rd minute for the pressure. Chencho Gylteshen finished a superb solo run through the left wing, dropping three defenders and beating the Aizawl keeper Vikram Singh which proved to be the match-winner.

RGPFC could have doubled the lead soon but Luka Majcen’s right footer came back off the post. Aizawl tried hard to find the equalizer but all their attacks were thwarted by the RGPFC defense who stood firm. Kiran Kumar Limbu, who was adjudged as the Hero of the Match, made some crucial saves to help his team secure all three points and keep the pressure on table-toppers Sreenidi Deccan.

RGPFC have 37 points from seventeen matches while Aizawl FC have 23 points from sixteen games. RGPFC will face NEROCA FC on 20th February at the Khuman Lampak Stadium, Imphal.
