KARACHI: Mohammad Ibrahim scored twice to help Habib Bank Limited (HBL) down Karachi Port Trust (KPT) 3-1 in the Pakistan Premier Football League (PPFL) on Sunday for their second successive victory.

Ibrahim struck twice in the last five minutes of the first-half to put HBL in control of the game and although Zafar Majeed replied for KPT in the 75th, any hopes of a comeback were swiftly ended when Atif struck two minutes later.

Victory for HBL eased their relegation fears and put them seven points clear of the drop zone with 28, two behind KPT with three games to go.
