Mohun Bagan's winless run continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Calcutta Customs in a Calcutta Football League Premier Division ‘A match here on Wednesday.

Stanley's 90th minute equaliser helped Calcutta Customs earn a 1-1 draw against the defending champions who lost 0-3 in their CFL opener to Peerless SC.

Mohun Bagan took the lead via a Fran Gonzalez strike in the 21st minute.

But it was all downhill for the green and maroon brigade from there on as they missed the services of Lalchhawnkima after an hour's play as the defender was sent off following his foul on Philip.

Customs were also down a man when Debayan Saha was booked for a second yellow card, resulting in a red in the 84th minute.

Stanley's shot off an Amit Chakraborty corner got the better of Mohun Bagan goalkeeper Shankar Roy in the dying minutes of the game as both teams shared the spoils.
