Kolkata, Feb 2 (IANS) Pailan Arrows managed to pull off a 0-0 draw at home to Salgaocar SC in the 18th round of I-League football played at the Salt Lake Stadium here Thursday.
The draw leaves Salgaocar with 30 points from 18 encounters while Pailan Arrows stay at eight points from 16 outings.
Salgaocar started upfront heavily relying on Edeh Chidi and Ryuji Sueoka to create inroads in the Arrows defence.
The match started with a few scruffy passes and Arrows pressing Salgaocar in their own half. The first chance of the match came in the 17th minute when Francis Fernandes and Ryuji combined well and the latter pulled the ball back for Ishfaq Ahmed but goalkeeper Ravi Kumar did well to save it.
In the 39th minute, CS. Sabeeth of Pailan did well to find himself in space but attempting to chip it over Salgaocar keeper Karanjit Singh, he ended up putting the ball out.
The second half started like the first without much tempo. A half chance fell to Salgoacar in the 78th minute but Edeh Chidi couldn’t capitalise.
Arrows could have won the match in injury time when Ajay Singh was almost thorough on goal but Karanjit came out very alert and managed to keep the scores level.
The Man of the Match award went to Ryuji.
