It was the only real dark patch in their otherwise impressive record in the ISL but Atletico de Kolkata have erased that too. Delhi Dynamos pummeled the ATK defence with wave after wave of attacks but Kolkata not only held on but replied with counters.
Even when they were down to 10 men, the ATK players made sure that they punished Delhi to maximum effect by bouncing back with a counter and earning a penalty themselves. Iain Hume, who was more than usefull for the home side in the midfield throughout the day stepped up and made no mistake with the spot kick. ATK were ahead with just about 10 minutes to spare in the game.
It was then a story of ATK defending with all the 10 men they had got and in the end, came away with a result that propels them to second spot in the ISL table.
