Pailan Arrow share point with Mumbai FC

Kolkata: City-based Pailan Arrows failed to hold on to their lead and settled for a 1-1 draw against Mumbai FC in the eighth round of the I-League at Yuba Bharati Krirangan on Saturday.

Placed second from bottom in the league and fighting relegation from the premier division, Sukwinder Singh`s boys once again failed to capitalise on home advantage.

Both the teams were struggling at the bottom with Mumbai FC at 11th position having 7 points, while Pailan at 13th position with 4 points from 8 matches. After a barren first half when both sides made unsuccessful forays, Pailan wrested the initiative and forged ahead in the 58th minute through their forward Milan Singh (1-0).

Stung by the reverse, the Mumbai side went all out and forced a series of raids to earn the equaliser 20 minutes later. Mumbai FC`s Friday found the target with an angular shot to restore parity and thus deny Pailan a win.

Pailan are yet to taste victory in this year`s I-league like HAL Bangalore who are now at the bottom of the table.
