Mohun Bagan striker Dicka down with ankle injury

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

forward Aser Pierrick Dipanda Dicka today sustained an ankle injury in their 1-0 win over arch-rivals East Bengal in the I-League derby here today.

"He's injured his ankle and is being treated at the hospital. We are waiting for the reports," head coach Sen said at the post-match conference.

In a 51st minute move, Dicka failed to connect a cross by Ricky Lallawmawma inside the box and the Cameroonian was seen grimacing in pain.

The 28-year-old was attended to by the medical team on the sidelines as he failed to get up and was later stretchered off into an ambulance.

It's not known whether he has fractured his ankle or not.

Mohun Bagan, who jumped to top three with four points from two matches after their first win of the season today, will host Churchill Brothers in their next match here on December 10.
