Ten-man Kerala Blasters FC moved to second spot in the points table with a spirited performance to down wooden spooners NorthEast United FC 2-1

By H.JanGra Feb 5, 2022

Second-half goals from Jorge Pereyra Díaz (62nd)

And a stunner from Alvaro Vazquez (82nd) saw Kerala get back to winning ways as NorthEast United's misery deepened further.

Mohamed Irshad scored a goal deep into injury time

But that didn't matter in the end as Khalid Jamil's side remained on 10 points from 16 games.

Kerala now have 23 points from 13 outings.

The first chance of the game fell to NorthEast United as Suhair Vadakkepeedika had a golden opportunity to take the early lead

But the striker failed to connect after doing all the hard work to evade his marker from a Joe Zoherliana cross.
