Pune FC rally to hold AI to 2-2 draw

Pune: An in-form Pune FC suffered a scare before rallying from a two-goal deficit to hold Air India to a 2-2 draw in a 16th round I-League match at Balewadi Sports Complex on Sunday.

Ezeh Henry (14th) and Takayuki Omi (62nd) scored for the airmen, who at one stage looked to be in sight of an upset victory.

However, goals by S Venkatesh (76th) and Chika Wali (90+) ensured that the Pune outfit extended its unbeaten run to 10 matches.

With this draw, Pune FC now have 27 points from 16 matches, while Air India have 21 points in as many matches.
