Real Kashmir continued their unbeaten run in the 2022-23 Hero I-League with a 1-0 win over Churchill Brothers at the TRC Stadium on Monday.

A second-half header by the substitute Ibrahim Nurudeen proved enough for the hosts as they defeated Churchill Brothers for the first time in the I-League.

Churchill Brothers maintained possession right from the first whistle. However, the first major chance of the game fell for the home side at the quarter-hour mark as midfielder Yakubu Wadudu's shot was deflected onto the post by goalkeeper Albino Gomes.

In the 18th minute, Real Kashmir's Lalnuntluanga Bawitlung took a powerful shot from 30-yards out but the Churchill custodian Albino Gomes made a great save, diving to his left to keep the ball out of his goal.
