The much hyped I-League football derby between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan at Kanchenjunga Stadium in Siliguri ended in a goalless draw with both teams goalkeepers returning heroes.

None of their ace marksmen failed to fire a goal as East Bengal's TP Rehenesh was adjudged man-of-the-match with his resolute display under the bar in the first-half.

Mohun Bagan's Debjit Majumder stole the show in the last period with an equally dazzling display as in the end the crowd returned dejected without witnessing a goal from high-profile derby.
