Dempo hold Mohd Sporting

Mohammedan Sporting were held to a goalless draw in an I-League clash at the Salt Lake Stadium here on Saturday evening.

Both teams had great chances to score with Mohammedan’s Tolgay Ozbey and Alwyn George of Dempo wasting two golden opportunities each.

It is Mohammedan Sporting’s third straight goalless stalemate at home and it takes their tally to 13 points from 11 matches. Dempo have one point less from the same number of games.

The match got off to a slow start as neither side threatened to score in the early stages but Dempo suffered a big blow as Brazilian Beto came off with an injury and was replaced by Jeje Lalpekhlua.

Mohammedan Sporting were seeing more of the ball but it was only after the half hour mark that they had their first real opening. Tolgay got a clear sight of goal after a nice move but his shot was easily saved by Dempo custodian Laxmikant Kattimani.

 Just before the halftime break Tolgay squandered a sitter as he blasted his effort off target from close range.
