Bangladesh Muktijoddha Sangshad Krira Chakra drew an end to Mohammedan Sporting Club Limited’s fine run in the Bangladesh Premier League with a comfortable 2-1 win at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Sunday.

Mohammedan, who won three and drew one in their last five matches, made a notable turnaround in the second phase of the league after getting only six points from 12 matches to be placed at 12th in the first phase.

However, with Sunday's win, Muktijoddha leapfrogged Mohammedan and Chittagong Abahani Limited to climb to seventh in the table with 26 points from 23 matches.

Mohammedan stepped down to ninth place with 24 points from same number of outings. 

Both teams have only one game remaining in the league.

It was Muktijoddha who created more chances in the first half with Mehedi Hasan first going close to scoring in the 11th minute only to be denied by the woodwork.

Muktijoddha were denied by the crossbar once again in the 18th minute and this time it was Ivory Coast forward Ballo Famoussa’s dropped-header following a corner from Tariqul Islam.

Defender Habibur Rahman Nolok came off the bench to break the deadlock in the 81st minute. 

Receiving a back-pass from Tariqul, Nolok unleashed a powerful strike from just outside the box that beat Muktis goalkeeper Nahid Uddin who had only a slight touch.

Famoussa doubled the lead in the 90th minute utilizing from shaky defensive response from Mohammedan. 

A through pass from Rohit Sarkar set Famoussa in an one-on-one situation with the keeper before the Ivory Coast striker cut inside and placed the ball into empty net.

Souleyman Diabate scored a consolation goal for Mohammedan in the fifth minute of added time.
