Saif Sporting, Arambagh share spoils
Big-spending Saif Sporting Club registered their fifth draw in the Bangladesh Premier League when they were held to a stalemate by unfancied Arambagh Krira Sangha at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Monday. Rahmatganj Muslim Friends Society, in the day's second match at the same venue, went close to returning to winning ways but struggling Muktijoddha Sangsad Krira Chakra scripted a brilliant comeback in the second half as they came back from two-goal deficit to snatch a 2-2 draw. Nigerian forward Afeez Oladipo opened the scoring for Rahmatganj in the 44th minute before Dawda Ceesay doubled the lead in the 70th minute. Defender Saddam Hossain assisted both the goals. Muktis pulled one back four minutes later through Nigerian forward Magalan Awala while midfielder Nazmul Islam restored parity a minute before the end of stipulated time. It was Muktijoddha's first point after conceding defeats in their last three matches which kept them second from bottom with only eight points. Saif Sporting remained fourth with 26 points from 13 games while Arambagh are placed at ninth with 11 points. Rahmatganj remained at eighth with 12 points. Both Saif Sporting and Arambagh had one chance each in the opening half. English striker Charlie Sheringham saw his weak header in the 21st minute denied by Arambagh goalkeeper Azam Khan while the Motijheel outfit squandered a great chance to open the scoring in the 35th minute as forward Sohel Rana failed to collect a brilliant through from Rajon Mia at the top of the box. In the 82nd minute, Saif Sporting youngster Matin Mia's shot on a rebound from the middle of the box was cleared off the line by Arambagh defence after Sohel Rana's initial effort was blocked by the keeper. RESULTS Saif Sporting 0 0 Arambagh Rahmatganj 2 (Afeez 44, Ceesay 70) 2 Muktijoddha (Awala 74, Nazmul 89)
