Mum­bai: North­East United FC tasted their third con­sec­u­tive draw of this In­dian Super League (ISL) sea­son, play­ing out a goal­less draw with ATK in Guawhati on Satur­day.

Af­ter their twins draws against Jamshed­pur FC and Ben­galuru FC, where they led till the clos­ing stages of the game, North­East were again forced to share the spoils in their home ground.

North­East United have scored only one goal in their last three games but the point gained saw them re­claim the sec­ond spot with 20 points from 11 games. ATK are still sixth with 16 points from 11 matches.

The match got off to a se­date start as nei­ther team found any sort of rhythm in at­tack. Though the home side saw more of the ball in the open­ing ex­changes, they were un­able to trou­ble the ATK de­fence which looked com­pact.

Even the sub­sti­tu­tions made in the sec­ond half failed to pro­vide the spark.
