Mumbai:

Salgaocar Sports Club winger Sunday Seah's 75th minute goal helped the Goan outfit beat local team Mahindra United 1-0 in the seventh Oil PSU National Football League at the Cooperage today. Mahindra United suffered yet another humiliating defeat in front of their home crowd and are stuck on six points from eight matches while Salgaocar increased their tally to 13 from eight matches after the win. The match turned out to be a dull and drab affair with the teams making just four good moves in the entire 90 minutes of play. In the 25th minute, Salgaocar striker Dudo Omagbemi's floater almost beat Mahindra custodian Naseem Akhtar before the youngster did well to cover his tracks and collect the high ball cleanly. Five minutes later Mahindra mid-fielder Abhishek Yadav, who seemed to be very slow on his feet, failed to head home medio Biby Thomas lob and the teams went in to the breather without disturbing the scorers. In the 65th minute the visitors could have gone ahead but their mid-fielder Tomba Singh hit out from close range with only the rival goalkeeper to beat. However, ten minutes later Sunday scored the match winner after getting the ball from the mid-field. Salgaocar's Dudo Omagbemi was given marching orders after a rough tackle for the second time in the match. Earlier, in the 20th minute he had elbowed Mahindra defender Peter Siddique on his face and was slapped with a yellow card. (PTI)
