His contribution to Mohun Bagan has been vast.

The Cameroonian struck the first one with a snap volley in what was one of the fastest goal of the season in the opening minute while the second one (34th) was a treat to the eyes as his acrobatic volley thundered into the back of the net.

However, East Bengal are still ahead of Bagan with 19 points from 11 games and Bagan have 16 points with one game in hand.

East Bengal are looking to avenging their December 2017 first leg loss against the Mariners at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata.

The Green and Maroon brigade were without the services of star winger Sony Norde and Chakraborty was pleased that his team put in a top performance in his absence.

"Their coach Khalid Jamil is way more experienced than me and had been in the Indian football scene for more than a decade".

The Haitian worldwide has won all major domestic trophies, namely the I-League in 2014 and the Federation Cup in 2015, with Mohun Bagan.

Lebanese forward Akram Moghrabi is the new signing for Bagan.

Dicka gave Mohun Bagan a dream start to the derby as East Bengal's defence was caught napping when he utilised Nikhil Kadam's cross that was set up by Akram.

As it transpired, Dicka doubled their lead as Raynier Fernandes swung in a free-kick which the Mariners' striker took on the full with his left and buried it past Luis Xavier Barreto in the EB goal. To remain in the hunt for the league championship, we had to win and we won.
