Margao, Goa: Salgaocar FC produced a superb defensive performance to eke out a goalless draw with Dempo Sports Club, though the result did no favours to any of teams as both remained in the relegation zone after their I-League encounter played at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda here on Wednesday (20th May) afternoon.
The luck was not on Dempo’s side to gain full points from the fixture. It was Dempo who had maximum possessions in the entire match, however Salgaocar did create some attacking moves in patches but they failed to convert chances with Darryl Duffy and Douhou Pierre upfront. Whereas Dempo did not capitalize on the chances they had through Tolgay Ozbey. For Dempo, playing his first match in ongoing I-League Pranoy Halder performed exceptionally and rightly named the man of the match.
Following the draw either teams remained on 18 points and need pull out something very special from their remaining fixture to avoid relegation from I-League.
