Prayag move to third spot

Prayag United SC climbed to third place in the I-League table with a facile 2-0 win over Shillong Lajong FC in a penultimate round I-League fixture at the Kalyani Stadium on Friday.

United got the lead through Ranty Martins’ goal from a spot-kick in the 20th minute, while Shylo Malswamtulunga settled the issue seven minutes later.

Prayag with 41 points from 25 matches pipped Pune FC to be behind league leaders
Churchill Brothers and East Bengal.

Pune FC though have four more matches left in the competition.

Both the teams wasted chances in the first 10 minutes before Lajong conceded a penalty when goalkeeper Lalthuammawia Ralte brought down Kayne Vincent inside the box in the 17th minute.

Ranty converted the spotkick without much fuss to give them a 1-0 lead. Seven minutes later, Ranty set it up for Vincent who made a run behind the defence and made a square pass to Malswamtulunga who slotted it into an empty net.
