The fairy tale continued into the 25th minute when Ramzan Khan delivered a nice floating cross from the corner and Tekiate jumped in time to head the ball in.

The Whites looked as equally sharp in defence, frustrating Rewa in their multiple attempts at goal.

But they could only hold on for so long before space starts creeping and this is what Abbu Zahid exploited, netting a crucial goal to keep them in contention.
