Kolkata: Mohammedan Sporting came back from behind to edge out Rangdajied United FC 2-1 for a crucial win in their relegation battle in the I-League at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here on Sunday. Ranti Martins injected life into an otherwise dull start with a 12th minute goal from a rebound to put the Shillong outfit ahead. (Note: Picture for representational purpose only)
The local challengers upped the tempo and levelled through substitute Taro Hasegawa in the 33rd minute before Luciano Sabrosa sealed the issue firing a 64th minute spotkick to register Mohammedan Sporting's only second win in 11 matches.
The win pushed Mohammedan Sporting (21 from 22 matches) one place up leaving Churchill Brothers (19 from 20) at the bottom even as they are not yet spared from the relegation threat.
