Manvir helps FC Goa beat Hyderabad FC 1-0 in Hero ISL

Hyderabad, Dec 8 (UNI) Manvir Singh came off the bench to score the match-winner
as FC Goa edged past Hyderabad FC 1-0 in the Hero Indian Super League clash at
the GMC Balayogi Stadium here on Sunday.
Goa dominated proceedings for most parts but both teams struggled to create
clear-cut chances before second-half substitute Manvir (68') headed in the decisive
goal.
With the crucial three points away from home, Sergio Lobera's side climbed back into
the top four after securing their first win in three games. They are now third with 12
points from seven matches. Hyderabad remain winless in four matches and are at the
bottom of the table with four points.
The hosts started on the front foot with an intent to take an early lead. Marko
Stankovic's shot from inside the box was blocked away for a corner in the sixth minute.
From the resulting corner swung in by Marcelinho, Rafael Gomez headed wide from
six yards.
The momentum soon took a hit when Stankovic went down clutching his hamstring
and had to be replaced by Giles Barnes.
The change in midfield allowed Goa to take control and keep the ball unopposed.
Ahmed Jahouh's piledriver from outside the box fizzed just wide of Kamaljit Singh's
post as the home team’s defence was kept on their toes.
At the other end, Hyderabad had a rare sight of goal when a misguided clearance
by Mohammed Nawaz fell for Mohammed Yasir who then forwarded the ball to Bobo.
The Brazilian fed Marcelinho into the box and the talisman's powerful strike was saved
well by the Goa custodian.
The search for the opening goal continued after the break and Goa dominated
proceedings. Brandon Fernandes and Hugo Boumous combined well on the left flank
before the latter was set free brilliantly by the India international. Boumous chose to
go for goal on his own, but shot straight at Kamaljit.
The Hyderabad defence was finally broken after the hour mark and it was second-half
substitute Manvir Singh who made an impact from a corner-kick. In the 68th minute,
Brandon delivered the set-piece into the box for the Indian striker who beat Adil Khan in
the air to head the ball into the net.
Goa were more confident in possession and denied Hyderabad a way back into the
game in the final few minutes. Boumous and Manvir had attempts on goal that were
kept out by Kamaljit but the damage had been done.
