HAL held Prayag United to a goalless draw at the Yuba Bharati Krinangan today evening. In a match that lacked any bite only HAL missed a couple of scoring opportunities in Malemn and Vinoth Kumar.
For Prayag, Josimar Da Silva Martins and Yusif Yakubu came close both once each in the first half, but failed to provide any breakthrough in the second half as both teams had to settle for a 0-0 draw.
Only a point in an away match, but HAL can take lot of positives from today’s match. HAL will go home the happier of the two sides. Prayag United Coach Sanjoy Sen, will be disappointed that his team could not capitalize on an easier opponent at home.
The draw means HAL picked up only their 3rd draw of the current I-League campaign to take them to 3 points from 14 matches and they remain at the rock bottom on the table. Prayag United SC have 22 points from 14 matches.
