PFC PRESS RELEASE : Pune FC missed chances aplenty and were held to a 1-1 draw at home by United SC in an I-League Round 12 encounter at the Shree Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune on Sunday. Winger Nikhil Kadam (77th minute) gave Pune FC the lead before substitute Asif K. (82nd) equalised for the visitors.......... Match Live Commentary Below

The draw was Pune FC's third in a row as they blew the chance to top the table and now move up to second place with 19 points from 10 games whereas the visitors dropped down to fifth place with 17 points. Pune FC were dominant in the second half, however a few missed chances from close cost them.

Coach Mike Snoei made one change to the squad bringing in Lalrempuia Fanai in place of Srikanth Ramu in the starting XI. The game began with Pune FC creating the first close chance inside 90 seconds. Playmaker Douhou Pierre set up Nikhil with a crisp through ball. The winger who came in from the left tried to control and slot home but his attempt was blocked by keeper Ishan Debnath.

Five minutes later, at the other end, Pune FC custodian Amrinder Singh saved a close range attempt from medio Souvik Chakrabarti. Moments later, striker Ranti Martins got into the clear on the right, but his cross in the face of the goal found no takers as the visitors tried to push.

After half chances at either end, Pune FC once again went close midway through the half. Medio Arata Izumi won the ball in the center and found striker Riga Mustapha on the right whose attempted cross for Nikhil on the run was intercepted by the keeper. Five minutes later, defender Gurjinder Kumar got into the clear in the center. Controlling Mumtaz Akhtar's lob, he smashed the ball goalwards from the edge of the box. Ishan once again produced a close save to deny Gurjinder.

At the other end, Amrinder showed brilliant reflex action as he saved Ranti's low header from Eric Brown's corner. Pune FC once again went close in first half injury time. James Meyer, Lalrempuia Fanai and Douhou Pierre combined on the right before Douhou found Riga inside the box. The striker was however dispossessed inside the box. Both sides went into the break failing to break the deadlock.

Three minutes after restart, Nikhil once again got himself into a good position on the left. The winger controlled Meyer's long cross but volleyed it over with no opponent challenging. Six minutes later, Arata got into the clear on the right near the touchline and lobbed the ball into the six-yard box. Riga, waiting inside, tried to beat the keeper with his first-time attempt but went over.

Moments later, Nikhil once again went close to open the scoring. The time his outside of the boot shot from the edge of the box on the right after Douhou's lay off went agonisingly over. Both sides kept pressing, but finishing in the final third let them down.

Into the last quarter of the game, Pune FC finally took the lead. Douhou's defense splitting through ball sent Riga into the clear on the left. The striker tried to beat the advancing keeper but the ball was blocked. Nikhil, lurking in the area, capitalised and slotted home the stray ball from outside of the box.

Pune FC's joy was short-lived as the visitors equalised five minutes later. After Amrinder had saved Ranti's long-range shot, the ball fell for Souvik on the left inside the box. The medio found substitute Asif - on for Anupam Sarkar - unchallenged in front o the goal as he slotted home. The hosts kept on pushing ahead in the final ten minutes of the game looking for the winner but United SC held on for the draw. Man of the Match: Nikhil Kadam (Pune FC)

RUFC: Subrata, Thomas, Gouramangi, Lamine, Iwasaki, Lugun, Tomba, Lyngdoh, Manandeep, Pratik, Kim.

Rangdajied United FC finally shrugged off their winless run after defeating Kolkata Giants, Mohun Bagan 2-0 in the 12th Round of the I-League at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Sunday. Manandeep Singh gave 'The Blues' a lead against the run-of-play in the 22nd minute before Eugeneson Lyngdoh scored the second in the 66th minute to ensure the historic win............... SCROLL DOWN BELOW FOR LIVE COMMENTARY .

Coming in following the back-to-back draws after strengthening their squad, the Meghalaya side were confident of upsetting the Mariners as coach Santosh Kashyap made some surprising changes. He dropped youngster KC David Ngaihte and Joy Chandra, perhaps in a calculated move, to master a sweet revenge against the club that sacked him mid-way last year.

The host were the first to get a scoring chance when Subrata Paul failed to clear a back pass that fell on Odafa Okolie's feet at the edge of the box. Odafa passed the ball to Eric Muranda and luckily for Rangdajied, the Kenyan was slow on his turn and the visitors survived.

The hosts however continued to press hard, Katsumi being the architect of those attacks. But soon, Rangdajied players settled down and in no time silenced the Mariners at the stand. It was Manandeep Singh again, who broke the deadlock when Yohei Iwasaki dribbled passed two defenders and found the former East Bengal striker inside the 6-yard box, who coolly slotted the ball home.

Bagan, having conceded came all guns blazing, seeking for the equaliser with Odafa Okolie taking most of the burden on himself. But time and again, Subrata Paul came to the rescue of his side and took them to the break with the lead intact. Changed of ends saw the match starting in the same vein but this time Rangdajied had the first look at the goal. Manandeep took a sharp turn and unleashed a screamer which went straight into Sandip Nandi's hand.

In between, the Green and Maroons made few inroads. But none was dangerous enough to trouble the defence or the keeper before Tomba Singh came up with another brilliant header, forcing Sandip Nandi to stretch full-length to keep the ball away. Around the hour mark, Odafa failed to restore parity on two occasions. In a one-to-one challenge with Subrata Paul, the Spiderman dived brilliantly to snatched the ball before he failed to score in an open net in the second occasion.

But it was Rangdajied United all again in the 66th minute when skipper Eugeneson Lyngdoh stunned the Kolkata side. Kim Song Yong brilliantly built-up from the right and passed it on to Manandeep, whose back heal found Eugene unmarked inside the six yard box. The Rangdajied No. 10 had to just tapped the ball in.

Mohun Bagan initiated few more attacks after the 2nd goal and Odafa forced the former Mariner goalkeeper to come up with few brilliant saves that earned him the Man of the Match award. With this win, Rangdajied United accumulated 8 points from 11 outings and are now placed 12th in the standing. The team will now return home and host East Bengal on the 7th of December at the Jawaharalal Nehru Stadium.
