Robin strikes in BFC victory

Robin strikes in BFC victory
Substitute Robin Singh turned out to be the hero of the match as his 50th minute strike powered Bengaluru FC to a 1-0 win over Shillong   Lajong in the Group ‘B’ league match of the Hero Federation Cup on Friday.

The win on Friday takes Bengaluru FC on top of the table with 7 points from three matches and put them in strong position for a place in the semifinal. Shillong Lajong who have lost all their three matches are at the bottom and out of reckoning for the semi-finals berth.

Both the teams played entertaining game at Tilak Stadium. Bengaluru FC who had the early domination with C K Vineeth looking dangerous on the right flank as he came close to scoring in the 17th minute but his shot was tipped over by keeper Bhutia.

Ashley Westwood made an early change after the break bringing in Robin Singh in place of CK Vineeth and it proved to be the masterstroke as he combined well along with Sunil Chhetri upfront and troubled the rival defense. He put his team in the lead in the 50th minute when he drove a left-footer from  inside the box off Chhetri’s pass that went in after hitting the post.
