Dynamos rally to hold ATK

Delhi Dynamos maintained its unbeaten run at home, despite playing the entire second half with 10 men, as it rallied twice to hold Atletico de Kolkata 2-2 in an enthralling Indian Super League (ISL) match here on Sunday.

Iain Hume put ATK ahead in the 17th-minute and went into halftime with its nose ahead.

The Canadian received the ball in the box and with his second touch, curled it past Antonio Doblas. A few minutes later, ATK could have gone up 2-0 had Helder Postiga’s strike found the target.

The hosts were dealt a blow when Badara Badji, playing upfront in place of Richard Gadze, was sent off for getting his second yellow card.

Delhi Dynamos found the equaliser through Milan Singh’s rasping left-footed volley in the 63rd-minute. Spain’s Javi Lara again made it 2-1 when he struck in the 71st-minute to silence the 19000-odd crowd.

Having missed a penalty a few minutes ago, Dynamos skipper Florent Malouda showed the way when he helped his team make another comeback by scoring in the 74th minute.
