MDSP, despite missing key players like Faslu and Abhishek Halder due to injury and suspension, were on the front foot from the start and it seemed like a matter of time before they scored.

Credit must go to Azharuddin Malik for holding onto the ball in the middle of the Blasters half and then playing back to Safiul who played forward to Abhash Thapa.

Thapa found Marcus to his left and the Trinidadian delivered a dangerous low cross across goal. Among two advancing MDSP forwards, Yumnam Gopi missed it but Faiaz was on hand to slot home with ease.

The Blasters did not let the goal dampen their spirits and continued to try to get into the game by creating good chances of their own. However, the equalizer did not materialise.

The half ended with MDSP in front, but more had to be done.

The attacks kept coming and Dauda got his first big chance in the 58th minute when Marcus played Faiaz inside the box on the right and he in turn found the Nigerian perfectly with his cross.

Dauda met the ball fully and with the keeper and an open goal in front of him, missed his connection and the volley flew over.

He didn’t have to wait long for his first goal though, as the same Marcus-Faiaz combination played him inside the box between two defenders just a minute later.

The Nigerian bluffed the keeper, took him out of the equation and shot at goal. Center back Marwan tried to save the situation but all he got was a touch before the ball trickled into the goal. The insurance was provided.

It was all over in the 84th when Marcus released Abhishek Ambekar on the left wing. The left wing-back drove towards the touchline and delivered a perfect cross for Dauda to head in.
