NorthEast United FC breathed new life into their dying Indian Super League campaign with a dramatic 1-0 victory over FC Pune City at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati, on Tuesday. NorthEast United had gone six matches without a win, losing four of them. With just two points from their last six matches they were on the verge of exit until Ivory Coast midfielder Romaric scored from a stunning free-kick in the 81st minute to leave FC Pune City’s campaign in tatters. The victory helped NorthEast United accumulate 14 points from 11 matches and move to the sixth spot. With three matches still left to be played and the jinx finally broken, coach Nelo Vingada will feel more confident. Pune City have 15 points from 12 matches and will have to win their next two games to be assured of a place in the play-offs. (Video and photo courtesy ISL)
