Roy Krishna scored a brace, including a late equaliser to secure a 2-2 draw for ATK against Hyderabad FC in an ISL VI match here on Saturday.

Krishna (15th, 90th) scored for ATK, while Bobo (39th, 85th) was on target for Hyderabad.

The first chance came in the seventh minute when Bobo found Gordillo and the Spaniard’s shot from inside the box missed the near post by a few inches.

Javier Hernandez’s cross from the left was deemed to have been handled by Ashish Rai as the referee pointed to the spot. Krishna struck from the ensuing penalty as the visitors took the lead against the run of play.

Hyderabad FC equalised in the 39th minute when Nestor sent in a cross from the left which was met by Bobo who headed it home despite being under pressure from Salam Ranjan and Pritam Kotal.

ATK could have taken the lead again as Joby Justin’s header sailed over the bar from a Hernandez free-kick.

Krishna and Williams combined a few minutes later with the latter being fed by a quality cross.

However, an important interception by Adil Khan denied Williams as Hyderabad survived a scare.
