FULL TIME
 
SC East Bengal attempt a very late comeback but it was not to be as NorthEast United FC hold on for a 2-1 win to go back in Top 4. Sarthak Golui, who scored an own goal and then SCEB's only goal, is devastated and leaves the field of play immediately. After a fairly dull first half, Suhair VP gave NorthEast United FC the lead following which Sarthak scored the unfortunate own goal after Nim Dorjee's regular cross from the right. Sarthak headed in SCEB's only goal but couldn't help for a comeback.

East Bengal and NorthEast United last played on December 5, where the Highlanders emerged victorious 2-0. It was an unfortunate own goal and another from Rochharzela that gave NorthEast United the win. Surchandra had scored an own goal in the 33rd minute of the game while Rochharzela scored NorthEast United’s second in stoppage time. East Bengal had a lot of shots that game but only two on target. NorthEast United also had just three shots on target but scored off two of them.

SC East Bengal assistant coach Tony Grant believes this could be a real test for his side when they take on the Highlanders on Tuesday. “To play for this club, you have to be able to roll your sleeves up. It’s a great test for our boys to show us their quality,” he said. SCEB will clash against a side eyeing their place in the playoffs and the encounter will be an enticing one considering NorthEast’s form in the league so far. “I think they are great. I think they started the season really well and looking at their recruitment, they have got a good blend of youth (and experience) in their team. They are in the top four and they deserve to be up there. It’s going to be a big test for our lads. And that’s the best time you will get to see what your players are made of,” stated Grant.

The Highlanders need to win their next two games in order to progress to the playoffs but assistant coach Alison Kharsyntiew stressed that his side was focused only on the SCEB match. “We concentrate on our game tomorrow and then will think about the last game against KBFC. Tomorrow is a very important game for us,” he said. “We have to play very well. We have to defend well, we have to attack well, we have to create chances and then utilise them and give our 100 percent. This is a game we cannot take easy. We have to show character and give our best throughout 90 minutes and hopefully, we will get three points tomorrow,” he added.
