DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE - —PTI

Kochi: Ker­ala Blasters’ dry run at home in the In­dian Su­per League con­tin­ued as they suf­fered a 0-1 de­feat to FC Pune City at the Jawa­har­lal Nehru Sta­dium here on Fri­day. Ker­ala have been win­less at home this sea­son and have not picked up full points since their open­ing round win against ATK.

The only goal of the match came in the 20th minute from Marcelinho as Pune City reg­is­tered only their sec­ond win of the cam­paign.

The win takes Pune to eighth spot and are now only a point off Ker­ala who re­main a spot above. Blasters are win­less in 10 games now.

Ker­ala threat­ened at the other end. Af­ter a crisp in­ter­change of passes be­tween Sa­hal Samad and Courage Peku­son on the edge of the box, the lat­ter picked out Slav­isa Sto­janovic’s run be­hind the de­fence with a de­light­ful lob which the striker failed to con­nect with his out­stretched right leg.
