Player of the Match:
Cleiton Silva was once again the shining man on the pitch for BFC. The Brazilian has consistently been putting in stellar performances and has been the one positive mark for BFC in their lackluster start to the season. He assisted Bhatt for the second goal and converted from the penalty spot to grab 1 assist and 1 goal each in the match. Silva now has 4 goals and 2 assists for the season. His all-round performance has set the benchmark for BFC to follow as Sunil Chettri struggles to find some form.
