...
KEB remain unbeaten in the league till now while Shillong have now lost only one in their last six games. A positive result for both teams but they could have asked for more. Thank you for joining Sportskeeda for this live coverage of the I League 2017 and we hope to bring you many more contests in the future. Stay tuned. 
...
We have seen a second consecutive draw at the Kanchenjunga Stadium in Siliguri and KEB have failed to win yet another match. They have been pretty indecisive in the final third. Shillong Lajong, on the other hand, started the game really brightly but could not sustain pressure over the course of the game. Both goalkeepers, Kaith in particular, were stellar today and they are big reasons why the scoreline is 1-1. 
...
FULL TIME KEB 1-1 Shillong Lajong
...
90+3 The game ends with Rahul Bheke trying to create something but in a manner symbolic of the day's proceedings for KEB, he fails to do anything substantial
...
90+1 SAVED!! Kaith has channelised his inner David de Gea to save his team but takes a brutal knock in the process. Such a shame to see Kaith down. He has been electric today.
...
90' Both teams look to be content with a point at the moment and it seems like the spoils will be shared in Siliguri today
...
86' Narayan Das is booked for a foul. The left back has not had a heroic outing as he did in the Kolkata Derby
...
84' SAVED!!! Kaith prevents his team from going behind as the East Bengal captain Ralte almost score a potential winner. 
...
82' Romeo Fernandes has managed to show his manager that he might be ready to start a game with an excellent display. However, it will be all for nothing if KEB do not score in the last few minutes. 
...
80' The intent has been there from KEB but it has not gotten converted into chances for the home side. The home team have not been able to quantify its pressure into shots on target, let alone goals. 
...
78' Are we heading for yet another draw in Siliguri? Certainly looks like that but you never know. KEB were heading into the first half with a deficit before Plaza equalised.
...
76' Romeo Fernandes has made a significant impact on the game here, winning his side a couple of corners and showing great commitment. 
...
75' About a quarter of an hour remaining in the match and there is an extended period of pressure from KEB but will it yield a goal? 
...
Nikhil Poojary is taken off and Romeo Fernandes comes on 
...
72' The introduction of Robin Singh has certainly added a lot of directness in the way East Bengal are playing. Should Trevor James Morgan have started with Robin instead of Payne?
...
67' The game is now being controlled by East Bengal and they put pressure through Poojary, who makes a couple of excellent runs and then takes a shot, which is well saved. 
...
65' East Bengal get a corner after Robin Singh's pass is deflected away for a corner but the counter attack results in Rehenesh, first making an error, and then saving the day for himself. Jittery moments. 
...
The game is likely to get slower as time progresses, given the intensity with which both teams have played today and any sort of error could cost either team. Lajong should go for the win here and it could be exactly the result I League needs at the moment. 
...
62' Shillong attacking now in full flow as Samuel takes a shot but it is well saved by Rehenesh. 
...
60' Kaith brought into action again as Dika's free kick is collected by the Lajong goalkeeper. An hour has passed in the game here and we are all square. 
...
59' Clear show of intent from here from KEB as throwing on Robin Singh is going to certainly bring in vigor. 
...
Robin Singh is brought on for Chris Payne
...
54' SAVED!!! Lajong keeper Kaith is brought into action as Plaza's shot is deflected away
...
53' Seems as if Morgan has decided to press through his midfield in order to give more freedom to the front trio. Good football from KEB here. 
...
51' Lajong create a chance of their own as Shadap gets a shot away but Rehenesh does well to hold on to the ball. We are alive and kicking in the second half.
...
50' The advantage KEB hold at the moment is that they are still level without playing top quality football and that could be a big factor in the second half. 
...
49' Just what the doctor ordered for KEB as they are showing a lot of intent here and attacking. Chris Payne takes a shot but it lacks teeth and is taken care of by Kaith. 
...
47' The game is at the same position where it was at the start of kick - both teams are level. We are looking at a change of guard from Trevor Morgan as he expects his team to put in a better performance. 
...
46' We see a change straight away as Arnab Kumar Mondal has been brought on for Gurwinder Singh
...
PEEEEPPPPPP We are underway in the second half. 
...
We have seen an exciting half of football here in Siliguri. Much against the run of play, KEB have drawn level with Shillong Lajong. 
...
HALF TIME East Bengal 1-1 Shillong Lajong
...
45+3' Kingfisher East Bengal have drawn level in the dying minutes of first half and this will give the home side a lot of confidence. 
...
45' GOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLL East Bengal draw level and it is Plaza who has put the home side on parity. 
...
44' GOOOOOOALLLLLL!!! NOOOOOOOO!!! OFFSIDE! A horrible error from Mehtab gives Lajong a free-kick but Dipanda's strike is ruled out
...
42' Despite being a goal down, KEB are looking pretty erratic and do not seem to be pushing forward enough. Lajong, on the other hand, have kept their shape and nullified the threat in both midfield and attack
...
40' It has been an unhappy outing for East Bengal's front three as they have not been able to link-up. Anselme, barring that shot in the first 10 minutes, has been conspicuous with his absence
...
38' Lajong are now looking to go into the first half with the lead and they will be really happy if that happens. Can EB get an equaliser before half time? Morgan would certainly hope so
...
35' Gurwinder gets a yellow card for his mini altercation with Dipanda
...
35' A lull period of around 10 minutes in the game here as no team has made any decisive movement or attempt on goal.
