South United FC held to 1-1 draw by Chennaiyin FC B!

South United FC were seconds away from registering their first win of the 2018/19 Second Division League but they were thwarted by a 92nd minute goal by Krishna Pandit.

The opening few minutes saw South United FC dominate possession and make inroads into the Chennaiyin FC B half. They created some half chances early on troubling the Chennaiyin FC B backline but were unable to find a penetrative attack.

In the 15th minute, David took on a speculative shot from distance that seemed more hopeful than anything, and it found its way past a flapping Chennaiyin FC B keeper to give South United FC a 1-0 lead. Chennaiyin FC B started to get into the game once they were a goal behind but struggled to test the keeper. Their threat from long throws seemed ominous in terms of being able to get a result form the game.

Meanwhile, Chennaiyin FC B seemed poor at the back, allowing the South United FC down the wings and only thwarting attacks with last ditch challenges.

The second half saw Chennaiyin FC B defend much better, they found themselves pushing South United FC back at times but the backline stood strong for the home side.

On one occasion, the keeper Jayanth had to intervene with a potentially match saving save as Krishna Pandit got onto the end of a cross and directed the ball towards goal.

The goal that came for Chennaiyin FC B in the 92nd minute came as a corner was floated into the box and after pinging around the box, it landed at Krishna’s feet and despite some pressure on him, he found the back of the net with a great driven strike.

Having waited till the 92nd minute to pull off a rescue act, the Chennaiyin FC B denied South United FC their first win of the season.
