Pune make life difficult for ATK in ISL
Pune: An engaging Indian Super League match between FC Pune City and ATK ended 2-2 and provided plenty of entertainment but playoff hopes for either side took a beating at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium, here on Sunday.
Pune took the lead in a see-saw tussle through Marko Stankovic’s deflected strike in the 17th minute. A superb goal from Jayesh Rane (23rd) and a penalty by Edu Garcia (61st) looked to have turned the tables in ATK’s favour. But Robin Singh scored a header (73rd) to help Pune clinch a point.
ATK have lost the chance to move within a point of fourth-placed NorthEast United and stay sixth with 21 points from 15 matches.
