The new darlings of the I League continue their merry winning ways beating Mahindra Sporting, 1-0 through a goal scored in the 23 minute by Kalia Kulothangan. Mumbai FC now lie just behind Sporting Clube from the top spot, separated by goal differential. This is Mumbai's third win in a row after beating East Bengal and Mohun Bagan, the perennial Kolkata powerhouses.
East Bengal, Mohun Bagan, and Mahindra now languish at the bottom of the table without recording a single win.
Trivia: FC Mumbai's manager David Booth managed Grimsby Town which was also Chima Okerie's former club from his days playing in the English league. Okerie now manages second division club Osian's New Delhi Heroes.
