Mohammedan Sporting Club’s unbeaten run in the second leg of Bangladesh Premier League came to an end yesterday when they suffered a 4-2 defeat against Sheikh Russel KC in their home match at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.
Mohammedan, who earned only six points from 12 matches in the first leg, had secured seven points in last three matches before yesterday’s match.
The Black and Whites twice fought back from a goal down, but Sheikh Russel had the last laugh, thanks to a brace from Raphael Odoyin.
Biplu Ahmed gave Sheikh Russel the lead, but Toklish Ahmed scored for Mohammedan. Alison Udoka gave Sheikh Russel the lead again, only for Toklish to equalise yet again.
However, Odoyin, the Nigerian striker, then scored two goals in the 70th and 86th minutes to settle the topsy-turvy encounter.
Sheikh Russel are now in third position with 36 points from 15 matches while Mohammedan remained in 10th position with 13 points from 16 matches.
