Thank you for tuning in today, from Pune, this is Miqdad Haider saying goodbye.

As the whistle is blown for the final time in this Maha Derby in Pune, DSK end up with a romping victory over cross state rivals Mumbai FC. The home team have absolutely thrashed the visitors, dominating from start to finish. Rogers will also be pleased with the fact that all scorers for the home side were Indian, with Holicharan Narzary at the double, and Pradhan, Chhangte and Mawihmingthanga also on the scoresheet. This game was a perfect one for the Shivajians but Mumbai slump further today; they failed to turn up at the Balewadi Sports Complex and were deservedly on the wrong end of a thrashing. Their fate seems sealed already, even with so many games to go.

Full Time: DSK Shivajians 5-0 Mumbai FC

90+2 DSK still full of running as Chhangte swings in a low cross after Quero's run. The ball gets cleared.

70- Narzary seems to have done his hamstring as he's being taken out for another young midfielder, Rohit Kumar. 

67- GOAAAALLLL! Lallianzuala Chhangte, who came on moments ago as a substitute. The young winger scores a brilliant solo goal intercepting the ball at the halfway line and going on a full paced run past the Mumbai defence, ending with a fantastic finish to the right corner.

46- Second half kicks off. 

Hello! We're about to be back under way after the half time break. DSK lead 2-0 going into the second half.

It's Half-Time here in Pune where the hosts have dominated the game, and deservedly find themselves 2 goals to the good. Holicharan Narzary has had a sensational half so far, scoring both the goals and hitting the post too. DSK will look to secure their stronghold of the game in the second half but Mumbai will have to find inspiration from somewhere if they are to make a match of this Maha derby. 

45+4 DSK seeing out the last few moments of the half by maintaining posssession.

45+2- Pratesh Shriodkar troubles Subrata with an attempt from 25 yards. Comfortably saved.

41- Clang! Narzary on fire here, hits the post from wide. Kattimani had no idea where that ball went. Quero messe up the follow up chance though.

38- A fight breaks out between Sasha Kolunija and Densil Theobald after a free kick was awarded to DSK. Sasha ends up with a yellow card.

35- DSK in control of proceedings at the moment. 2 goals up and looking good for more. Mumbai in desperate need of a response. 

32- Narzary is down receiving treatment but he should be able to run it off soon enough.

30- Mumbai earn a free kick in the opposition but Subrata Paul coems out and collects expertly. On the counter attack Quero almost picks out the lung bursting run of Mawihimingthanga.

27- GOALLLLLL! Narzary doubles his tally and that of his team! Pradhan finds Quero's run well. The diminutive Spaniard passes it to Narzary who fakes a defender before releasing a shot past Kattimani.

24- Quero once again at the thick of things as he's played through on goal but the Mumbai rally around and block his run. No penalty, despite Quero's appeals.

22- At the other end, Victorino Fernandes' shot was saved expertly by Paul but the linesman had already flagged for offside.

21- Juan Quero is allowed to run through the midfield and release a shot, but it goes just wide.

18- Mawihmingthanga fouls in the middle of the park. Meanwhile Clyde Fernandes is being taken off for cpatain Steven Dias. Mumbai without any U-22 players on the pitch now.

15- GOAALLLLL! DSK Shivajians take the lead! They applying constant pressure on the Mumbai backline; Pradhan's cross was blocked out by Kattimani but only as far as Holicharan Narzary who expertly smashed the ball past a despairing 'keeper.

12- Sanju Pradhan's cross is blocked out for a corner. Nothing comes from it.

9- A quick break from DSK sees Quero lay the ball off for Narzary. The No. 11 shot from a wide-ish angle is palmed out for a corner.

5- Wadoo and Milan Singh are involved in a bad collision as both went hard into the tackle. The decision goes Mumbai's way.

4- Quero's cross, met by Mawihminghtanga's header goes straight to Kattimani. The Mumbai goalkeeper's poor clearance hands the ball to Narzary who rolls the ball wide.

2- DSK create problems for the Mumbai defence straight away with their pressing, winning the ball close to the opposition box; Sanju Pradhan's cross, met by Passi gets blocked.

1- Kick Off! It's the visitors who start us off. Well, kick off was been delayed by a couple of minutes as there were some issues with the net in the goal Subrata Paul is guarding.

The teams are out in the middle and we're moments away from kick off. 

Juan Quero and Holicharan Narzary will be crucial for Dave Rogers' side while Santosh Kashyap will rely on Da Silva and Theobald to lead the side.

Mumbai FC come into this game without a win in 11, but will take confidence from the reverse fixture, where they beat DSK 1-0 on the opening day. They will also be boosted by their returning captain Steven Dias, who has made the bench for today's derby. 

The hosts themselves have not won in 5 games, but their brand of football while focusing on the youth has been particularly pleasing. DSK will be looking for the killer instinct as they aim to win this crucial derby. 

DSK Shivajians: (4-4-1-1) Subrata Paul(C), Chettri, Sasha Kolunija, McFaul, Jerry Lalrinzuala(U-22), Pradhan, Mawihmingthanga(U-22), Milan Singh, Passi, Quero, Narzary
