Chittagong Abahani still in title race
Rising powerhouse Chittagong Abahani kept their hopes alive in the title race of the Bangladesh Premier League as they edged Arambagh Krira Sangha in a hard-fought 1-0 win at Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni Stadium in Gopalganj on Saturday. Alison Uduoka's first-half header from midfielder Mamunul Islam's corner in the 29th minute was enough for the port-city club to salvage three vital points – their third consecutive league win. The victory helped the Chittagong outfit cut the gap to two points with table-toppers Abahani Limited at the summit of the 12-team standings with four more rounds remaining. Four-time professional league winners Abahani however, have played one game less. Sitting comfortably at second position, Chittagong Abahani have 37 points from 18 matches to extend the gap to eight points with third placed Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, the reigning champions. The title race now is pretty much a fight between the two Abahanis. In their bid for the second silverware this season, Abahani will encounter a stern test against arch-rival Mohammedan Sporting Club in the last match of the 18th round this Tuesday. Arambagh, who made a fine start to the season under the guidance of experienced coach Saiful Bari Titu, are winless in the last six matches, including yesterday's defeat. They are now seventh with 21 points from the same number of outings as Chittagong Abahani.
