Kalyani, West Bengal: Mohun Bagan were denied a lead twice as Shillong Lajong FC forced a 2-2 draw in the 22nd round of the I-league in the Kalyani Stadium on Thursday. Following a barren first half, Mohun Bagan forged the lead through their Australian striker Tolgay Ozbey in the 52nd minute before Lajong found the equaliser within a minute through Boithang Haokip.
Mohun Bagan regained their lead at the hour mark off substitute Manish Maithani. Mohun Bagan's lead was cancelled out once again as Lajong FC substitute PC Lahimthara nodded home the equaliser.
The first session did not see much of attacks as both side stuck to a defensive stance. Mohun Bagan had the first opportunity in the first quarter that saw Syed Rahim Nabi missing his header from close. Lajong FC also had their share of chances.
