NorthEast play out third straight draw
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.
