Kolkata, Aug 11 (UNI) East Bengal suffered a major jolt in their second leg opener in the Sahara Premier Football Leauge after settling for a goalless draw with Kolkata Port Trust(KoPT) at Yuba Bharati Krirangan here today.
The match, which never rose to any dizzy heights, saw East Bengal finding it difficult to counter the Port moves.
The Kolkata giant was rather fortunate to return home with a point.
With this, the KoPT was able to garner only eight points from as many matches against East Bengal's 12 points in the same number of matches.
Heavy rains made the field completely slushy today and the players had a tough time to control the ball.
