Roy Krishna scored a last-gasp equaliser as ATK came from behind to rescue a point against Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League yesterday.

Mumbai’s Serge Kevyn looked to have given the visitors a shock win with a well-worked goal in the 91st minute.

But Kolkata’s Salt Lake Stadium erupted as Krishna, who was having an average evening until then, scored in the 96th minute with defeat staring the hosts in the face.

ATK retained top position despite dropping points for the first time at home this season after chasers Bengaluru FC were held 1-1 by Hyderabad.

“When it’s a draw, I am not happy. But I am happy with the commitment of the team,” said ATK coach Antonio Habas in his post-match conference.

Krishna and co. will travel to Assam next Sunday to face the ever-improving North East United, with kick-off scheduled for 3am (Fiji time).

PACIFIC CUP

Lautoka and Labasa will face-off in an all-Fiji Pacific Cup final today after impressive victories in the semi-finals.

Labasa beat AUFFI All Stars from Australia 1-0 in the first semi-final through a well-taken goal by striker Siotame Kubu.

Lautoka overcame local rivals Nadi 3-1 in the second semi-final, with goals from Samuela Drudru, Dave Radrigai and Muni Shivam cancelling out Nadi’s opener by Peni Tuigulagula.
