ATK halt Mumbai City FC run in ISL
ATK brought Mumbai City FC’s six-game unbeaten run to an end after a 2-0 win at the Mumbai Football Arena here on Saturday.
First-half goals from Pronay Halder (29’) and Michael Soosairaj (43’) were enough as Mumbai City were left to rue their missed chances in the Indian Super League (ISL).
The win sees ATK draw level on points (21) at the top of the table with FC Goa.
ATK got their first goal in the 29th minute when Javier Hernandez and Roy Krishna combined delightfully to send David Williams into the penalty box. The Australian had the presence of mind to pick out an onrushing Halder who slotted it into the net.
The celebrations, though, were soured by an injury that Halder picked up, with Antonio Habas forced to send in Michael Soosairaj in place of the goalscorer. That move paid off handsomely in the 43rd minute when Soosairaj found himself in possession down the left-wing. He went on to place a sensational curler into the far corner to double ATK’s advantage at the break.
