The question is: who can stop Roy Krishna? The Fijian just cannot stop scoring – and this comes from a long period! The striker headed it home once again for ATK-Mohun Bagan in the third round of Indian Super League. After a very contested match, the difference between both sides was the strike of the Fijian international: at the 95th minute of the game, Sandesh Jhingan flicked the ball into the middle of the area and Krishna with a smart header found the back of the nets to confirm the third win in three games played for the current Indian Super League title holders.

“I’m extremely glad that we got the full three points. But it wasn’t easy. Odisha FC was coming out at us all guns blazing. We struggled a bit in the middle. However, this is our third clean sheet of the season. Our defenders have been proving themselves time and again. I’m happy to continue my scoring form. Three wins from three and we are a confident bunch. It’s the victory that matters at the end of the day“, said the Fijian after the match to SportStar.
Krishna’s ATK-MB is the only team in the league to win all three starting matches of the 2020/21 season. The Fijian is now tied with three other players in the golden boot race of the ISL season so far. Krishna had scored once each in the previous two matches of ATK-Mohun Bagan, that is also the only team still to concede a goal in the league.
