Churchill Brothers led by Keenan Almeida have opted to bank on their winning formula playing the same eleven and same formation 4-1-4-1 against Minerva.

The game saw a lot of end-to-end action, with Minerva having most of the opportunities.

Both teams got chances to score in the first half but Minerva failed to convert.

In the second half, the game began to build up as Minerva and Churchill Brothers started using the width of the field and putting pressure in the opposition halves.

Churchill Brothers defender Rowilson came close to scoring after dribbling past Kareem and slotting a fine shot but missing the angle.

Adil Khan picked on some ambitious efforts from halfway through but they didn't really trouble the Minervan custodian.
