Pune FC back to winning ways

Pune: Mandjou Keita and Othallo Tabia gave Pune FC the much-needed victory after three back-to-back losses as they scored their second win in seven matches beating Air India 2-0 in the I-League at the Balewadi Stadium on Thursday.

Scoring in different halves, Keita and Tabia were hallmark of Pune FC`s resolve that came from their brand new on-loan goalkeeper Abhra Mondal, who underlined the need for strong hand under the bar.

Keita converted a penalty-kick in the 41st minute, while substitute Othallo Tabia scored in the 70th to complete the tally.

The win provided Pune FC a lift from 11th to ninth position as they now have eight points from seven matches.
