Jamal outplay Mohammedan 2-0
Dhaka, July 29: Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club have showcased a disciplined and tactical performance to start their ‘Saif Power Battery Bangladesh Premier League 2017’ with a 2-0 win over Dhaka Mohammedan on Saturday at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.
Sheikh Jamal’s pressing game cornered Mohammedans from the very outset and forward Nurul Absar hit the side bar in the 6th minute much to the dismay of his teammates.
Mohammedan then strengthened their defence line to tackle Jamal’s controlled attacks. They opted for a counter attacking strategy preferring the flanks.
It was Sheikh Jamal had the lead in the 43rd minute, as Gambian forward Mamadou Bah took control of an angular pass of midfielder Omar Faruk Babu and swerved to deceive his marker before slotting the ball into the near post net (1-0).
Mohammedan piled up pressure again in the 51st minute of the second half when Nkowcha Kingsley’s goal mouth melee missed the target by a few inches.
Jamal sealed the fate of the match in the 84th minute when Mohammedan defender Md. Monir scored an own goal while trying to clear a low cross of Jahed Parvez Chowdhury with a back volley (2-0).
