Mohun Bagan maintained their position at the top of the I-League standings, with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against hosts Punjab FC in Ludhiana on Tuesday.

Seasoned Cameroonian striker Dipanda Dicka gave the hosts the lead in the first half and they almost clinched a win, before young Subha Ghosh snatched an equaliser late in the second, to ensure it was honours even.

Bagan now have 14 points from seven games while Punjab move one place up to second with 11 points from eight.

At the end of the game, Bagan’s 4-match winning streak was halted.
