Prayag United beat Chirag Kerala 1-0

Kolkata: Riding on the solitary goal by Kayne Vincent, Prayag United defeated Chirag United Kerala 1-0 in the 15th-round I-League match, played at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Thursday.

The win takes Prayag United to 25 points from 15 matches while Chirag United Kerala now have the pressure on them to move towards safety with only 10 rounds of matches left.

Prayag started the match with their first-choice keeper Abhijeet Mondol, with Deepak Mondal manning the defence, which was never really stretched.

Jayanta Sen played in Lalkamal Bhowmick's place in the centre of the field and Brazilian striker Joshimar Da Silva Martins started up front.

Keeping the pressure on the visitors, Prayag forward Kayne, who was playing just behind Joshimar, opened the scoring for the Kolkata outfit in the 14th minute.

After conceding an early goal, Chirag United never looked like a threat for Prayag. The scoreline could have been different had Prayag capitalised on the few opportunities created by them in the either half of the match.

Chirag United Kerala need to get their act together if they are to stay in the I-League next season, while Prayag will be looking to consolidate their position by winning their future round matches.
