It was quite an uninspiring game until the final few minutes. Shivajians were close to a credible point on the roadbut Robert's strike saw the hosts have the last laugh. This win takes Khalid Jamil's men level on points with the two Kolkata clubs at the top of the table, having played a game more. But, they remain third. What a season it is turning out to be for them.
In closing, I must make mention of the fantastic crowd here on a weekday. 7585-strong they made plenty of noise throughout the game and kept pushing the team to find a winner. Amazing support from the locals who made use of every vantage point around this beautiful stafdium to get a piece of the action. Its a very good evening from here in Aizawl.

It has been a flat first half. Aizawl have been the better side and Rane has been potent on the wings. The hosts should be ahead through Lalnunfela who fluffed his lines with the best chance of the game. Mahmoud Al Amnah was substituted through injury and Aizawl are missing his imagination in the middle of the park. Shivajians haven't done much in attack, but they have been comfortable at the back. Keep it right here for the second half.
