John Johnson hobbles off; Gurtej Singh makes AFC Cup debut

With a spot in the knockout stages almost guaranteed with a win, the Blues began attacking from the word go. Robin Singh found himself ruing an early chance as the Warriors’ custodian Ong collected his shot.

The Blues, however were dealt a major blow with barely a third of the first half played. Key defender John Johnson pulled up with what looked like a thigh problem. Therefore, 24-year-old Gurtej Singh was handed his AFC Cup debut. Gurtej however, had very little to do in the first half as the Blues attacked with surprising ferocity.

The brilliance of captain and goalkeeper Daniel Ong Sy Kae was all that stood between Bengaluru FC and the lead. A brilliant cross from Rino Anto saw Ong tip Chhetri’s cross over the bar. That was the best chance of the half as the half-time score read 0-0.

Bengaluru FC dominate second half; Robin Singh scores

In spite of Warriors FC bringing on the likes of Emmeric Ong and Marin Vidosevic, Bengaluru FC managed to dominate a large chunk of the second half. Beikhokhei Beingaichho succeeded in creating havoc on the right flank even as Chhuantea Fanai was as effective on the left.

Udanta Singh was handed his AFC debut as he was brought on for Thoi Singh just over the hour mark. The debut however, would end prematurely as a knock on Udanta meant that he would be withdrawn for Siam Hanghal.

Excessive pressure from Westwood’s men saw their hard work finally bear fruit. Warriors’ goalkeeper Ong, who had been magnificent all evening, had a momentary lapse in concentration.

His miscue landed at the feet of Eugeneson Lyngdoh, who found Robin Singh. In spite of options on both sides, Robin Singh took on the keeper with a left-footed shot from 25 yard out. The finesse and power of his shot helped it to find the back of the net with 76 minutes played.

The story of the final quarter saw Robin Singh and Co. hold the ball as they ran down the clock. Thus, the game ended with the score at 1-0 and Robin Singh being the only name on the score sheet.

Summary

The win sees Bengaluru FC secure a virtual qualification to the next round. They will next play Maziya S&RC at the Maldives on the 28th of April. As for Alex Weaver, four losses from four sees the Singapore Warriors out of contention for qualification to the knockout stages. However, Weaver’s men will play for pride as they face Persipura Jayapura on the 28th of April.
