Edeh Chidi and Pierre Douhou scored the last two goals for Mahindra, in the 78th and 84th minutes.
Mumbai FC upbeat
Mumbai FC’s English coach David Booth is hopeful of a good result when his team takes on Mohammedan Sporting in a rescheduled 11th round match at the Cooperage on Tuesday. The match was originally scheduled for November 30, but was postponed because of the terror attacks in Mumbai. Just before the terrorists hit the city, Mumbai FC had rallied to defeat JCT 3-2.
