Pune FC’s bid to go atop the table failed as it had to be content with a 1-1 draw at Dempo SC in the 11th round of the I-League at the Duler Stadium here on Wednesday.
After an unproductive first half, Dempo took the lead through Roberto Silva in the 47th minute. But the visitor equalised three minutes later through Mustapha Riga.
Pune FC took its point tally to 18 points from nine matches, the same as Salgaocar and Bengaluru FC, but has played one match less than them to remain third in the points table.
The result: Dempo SC 1 (Roberto Silva 47) drew with Pune FC 1 (Mustapha Riga 50). — PTI
