With two minutes remaining for halftime, the visitors hit back through Ryan Chandra to trail 3-1.

In the second spell, the Sky Blue Boys got off to a perfect start as Jone Naraba closed the gap.

But Ba had the last say following a penalty which was struck beautifully by Savenaca Nakalevu.

Head Coach Imdad Ali says this win was a much needed one for the Men In Black as they prepare for the Battle of the Giants.

“Very crucial, we were going down after the transfer windows, now that we are slowly picking up. This game is a stepping stone to our BOG preparations.”

The 2022 BOG will be held over two weekends, starting from Friday 26th August to Sunday 28th August.
