Kolkata giants East Bengal showcased a second successful professional performance away from home and on the hills of the North East, when they emerged 3-1 winners over Shillong Lajong at the JL Nehru stadium in Shillong, Meghalaya.

In game eight of the 12th Hero I-League, the red & golds rode on a first half-brace by Kerala striker Jobby Justin and a second-half strike from Bidyasagar Singh to thwart a spirited Shillong side, who got one back in the second half through left wing back Rakesh Pradhan.

Shillong was on the ball from the get-go as captain Samuel Lalmuanpuia’s super strike off a free-kick in the danger zone outside the box, ricocheted off the QEB woodwork with goalkeeper Rakshit Dagar soundly beaten.

Quite against the run of play though, it was East Bengal who took an early lead. From Lalrindika Ralte’s left-footed free-kick, Kerala frontman and Hero of the Match Jobby Justin leapt up to connect with a perfectly placed and timed header, which beat Neithovilie Chalieu in the Shillong goal all ends up.

The goal spurred the Shillong boys even further and they put the East Bengal side under sustained pressure with a wave of attacks. Samuel Lyngdoh’s crisp strike from 25 yards out in the 23rd minute was blocked by Dagar and captain Lalmuanpuia’s punch after Kamalpreet had given the ball away inside the red & golds half, were notable in this period. There was a spell when Shillong forced three corners in the space of 15 mins but could not find the equaliser.

It was then in the 41st minute when Jobby helped Kolkata giants double the lead from a counter attack. Mexican Enrique Esqueda who had a relatively quiet game, entered the box and his attempted cross hit a Lajong defender and looped up into the box. Jobby rose first to head the ball down and it deflected off a Lajong defender towards Esqueda again who promptly lobbed back to Jobby who volleyed to beat Neitho on the bounce and lodge the ball into the Lajong net.

After the lemon break, Shillong carried on with their attacking forays. Samuel Lyngdoh created and missed the most for Shillong today but he overall had a good game. In between QEB missed a couple of chances through Brandon and Laldanmawia Ralte.

In the 71st minute, Shillong got a goal back when the tireless left wing-back Rakesh Pradhan rose to connect a perfect header off a Hnamte corner. Shillong’s joy was shortlived however as QEB struck again a couple of minutes later through substitute Bidyasagar Singh.

Shillong kept on pressing as Samuel Lyngdoh’s freakish shot from distance was tipped by Dagar to kiss the QEB bar and go out for a corner. Alison even brought on Bonison to replace Hnamte in the 91st minute, but it was QEB’s day and they left the field with full three points.

EAST BENGAL : Rakshit Dagar, Lalramchullova, Johnny Acosta, Borja Perez, Manoj Mohammad, Kamalpreet Singh, Laldanmawia Ralte (Kassim Aidarara - 76'), Lalrindika Ralte (C), Brandon Vanlalremdika (Yami Longvah - 68'), Jobby Justin (K.Bidyasagar Singh - 57'), Enrique Esqueda
