Bambolim: A spirited effort by the SC East Bengal defence led by goalkeeper Debjit Majumder helped the 10-man Kolkata giants hold Chennaiyin FC 0-0 in the Hero Indian Super League match at the GMC Stadium here on Monday.
Robbie Fowler’s side was forced to play with a man down for almost over an hour after Ajay Chettri received his marching orders at the half-hour mark. However, SCEB held their ground throughout the game to frustrate Chennaiyin.
SCEB now extend their unbeaten run to seven games. SCEB made three changes as Anthony Pilkington was back in the side in place of Matti Steinmann.
New signing Ajay Chhetri was also handed his first start while Surchandra Singh was the other change. Chennaiyin made just one change as Edwin Vanspaul had his second start of the season, coming in place of Fatkhulo Fatkhulloev.
