Indian Arrows fail to find the target

The young side made the running against their more experienced opponents but failed to convert the chances that were presented at the Tau Devi Lal Stadium.

With the draw, Chirag remained at seventh position with 19 points from 14 matches — the same as Mohun Bagan — but below them on goal difference. Mohun Bagan also have one more game at hand.

Indian Arrows, on the other hand, are now 10th with 14 points from 14 matches. They have one more point than JCT and same as that of HASC but with an inferior goal difference, having played a game more.

The Arrows started the better of the two teams, but despite calling the shots, they couldn’t find the target.

‘B’ sample positive

The ‘B’ sample of Mumbai FC midfielder Nishant Mehra has also returned positive for a prohibited substance, raising the possibility of an I-League player being banned for doping for the first time.

Mehra tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol, a WADA in-competition prohibited substance, becoming the first footballer in the history of the I-League to fail a dope test.
Mehra’s ‘B’ sample, which was tested on Thursday in his presence at the NADA headquarters in Delhi, has tested positive for the same banned substance, NADA Director General Rahul Bhatnagar said.

“He will have to appear before the NADA Anti-Doping panel but the date will be decided later on,” Bhatnagar said.
