In three home matches, Bagan has drawn twice and lost once, a 0-3 humbling against Churchill Brothers on Sunday and following the 1-1 draw here against Chennai, the Green and Maroons have nine points.
Chennai, on the other, leads the points table and are already seven points ahead of the second-placed Churchill Brothers. They have 17 points from seven matches.
Norde provided the missing cog in the wheel with a sensational strike in the 50th minute because until then Mohun Bagan looked like they had done everything they could have to break the deadlock but just couldn’t tear it open.
