Salgaocar scored a 2-0 win over Shillong Lajong FC to move away from the relegation zone in the 20th round of the I-League on Saturday.
While Lajong remained on 19 points from 20 matches, Salgaocar, which posted its second straight win, moved up the ladder with 20 points from 19 matches, and also out of the relegation zone.
Salgaocar broke the deadlock in the 20th minute when a Wilkinson cross was headed in neatly by Josimar Martins, who did well to shrug off the challenge of Minchol Son in the Lajong area. Randeep Singh then increased the lead in the 39th minute when his free kick dipped into the net as the ‘keeper completely missed the flight of the ball.
The result: Salgaocar 2 (Josimar Martins 20, Randeep Singh 39) bt Shillong Lajong FC 0. — PTI
