Kolkata, March 6 : Sudeva Delhi came back from a goal down to beat Chennai City 2-1 in their Group B fixture of the I-League at the Kishore Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata on Saturday.
William Pauliankhum cancelled Jockson Dhas early goal, before Hero of the Match Sairuatkima headed in the winner in first-half injury time, and broke Sudeva’s four-game winless streak.
Chennai City came knocking on Sudeva Delhi goal as early as the second minute after Demir Avdic threaded a through pass for Vineeth Kumar, but Sudeva goalkeeper intercepted and cleared the danger.
Satyasagara’s side took the lead in the sixth minute after Demir Avdic won the ball of Sairuatkima in the area, and cut his cross back to Jockson Dhas, placed his finish into the right bottom corner.
Sudeva retaliated immediately and Kean Lewis met Naroem Mahesh’s cross, only to have his header blocked in a crowded penalty area in the eighth minute. On the other end, Sairuatkima made sure he would not be beaten for the second time as he tackled Demir Avdic inside the area, sending the ball out for touch on the 12th minute.
Fuelled by his goal against TRAU in the last game, William Pauliankhum came close to levelling the scores in the 18th minute after he cut in and curled his effort, only to see his shot crash against the woodwork.
