Blasters fail to break NEUFC’s resolve

A 10-men NorthEast United FC courageously held Kerala Blasters to a goalless draw in their Hero ISL match at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium here on Friday.

The draw ended a season of woes for the host which failed to take advantage of its numerical superiority.

The 0-0 draw saw Blasters end its campaign with 15 points while NEUFC finished its engagements with 30 points.

It was a familiar story of missed chances for Blasters but the big moment came in the 22nd minute when NEUFC was reduced to 10 after defender Gurwinder Singh was sent off by referee Rahul Gupta for a foul on Matej Poplatnik.

The result: Kerala Blasters 0 drew with NorthEast United FC 0.
