Reigning champions Bashundhara Kings moved to the top of the points table in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League after they clinched a narrow 1-0 margin win over Sheikh Russel Krira Chakra Ltd at the Bashundhara Kings Arena on Monday.

Kings’ Brazilian captain Robson Robinho scored the decisive goal in the 83rd minute through a penalty to confirm his team’s victory and also completed their fifth successive win in the ongoing edition of the tournament.

Kings were awarded a penalty when Sheikh Russel KC defender Nasir Uddin illegally fouled Robson inside the box in the 81st minute and the latter made no mistake to convert the spot-kick correctly.

With this win, Kings also remained unbeaten at their home venue as they won all their three matches played at the Bashundhara Kings Arena while Sheikh Russel KC lost both their matches here.
