The home team North East made a thrilling start, broken the dreadlock in just two minutes through Tlang Redeem to hand Gyan’s team 1-0 advantage after half time.
Just from the break, Odisha started on a high note. Trailing by a lone goal deficit, they dominated and dictated the pace of the game creating some sitters but failed to make it count.
The persistent pressure from the visitors made the North East defenders felt unrest throughout the second half until Xisco Hernandez cheeky flick bamboozled the defense to restore parity for Odisha, 1-1 now.
The host in a bid to find a winner pulled off soo much pressing when Odisha were reduced to ten men not soo long after getting the equalizer.
A decent cross from the left flank maneuvered it way through the box. Well positioned the Black Stars icon ‘Baby Jet’ with no haste head the ball gently to fetched the match winning goal for North East United FC at the Indira Gande Athletic stadium.
The victory uplifted Gyan’s North East to top the log with four points hence handed the Guwahati outfit their first win after two games in the 2019/20 season of the Hero Indian Super league.
The veteran joined the Indian outfit this summer after ending his stay in the Turkish Super league.
