Sporting settle for a draw against Lajong

Sporting Clube de Goa and Shillong Lajong settled for a point each after their I-League clash ended in a goal-less draw at Duler Stadium in Mapusa on Tuesday.

Both the teams failed to play entertaining football as there was not much goal mouth action. While Lajong saw more of the ball in the first session, Sporting did well to take control in the second session, although strikers of both the teams failed to show any quality.

Sporting goalkeeper Ashok Singh was tentative at the start and it was his mistake that presented Shillong with the first chance in the 12th minute. A terrible miscommunication between the goalkeeper and defender Mathew Gonsalves saw Gbeneme Friday with an opportunity just outside the box, but Mathew did extremely well to dispossess him just in the nick of time.
