Vasco: North East United got off to a good start under new head coach Khalid Jamil with a 2-1 win over Jamshedpur FC at the TilakMaidan Stadium on Sunday.
This is NorthEast's first win seven games.
Ashutosh Mehta scored his first ISL goal in the 36th minute to put NorthEast ahead. This was also Mehta's first goal in any league match since he scored for Aizawl under Jamil against MohunBagan in the 2016/17 I-League season. Substitute Deshorn Brown doubled the tally for NorthEast on his debut in the 61st minute. Jamshedpur skipper Stephen Hartley pulled one back in the 89th minute for his side but despite pressing the NorthEastdefence hard in the second half, Owen Coyle's side slumped to a third straight defeat.
