Full-time report: United continued their juggernaut to score twice past a toothless Dynamos at Jawaharlal Nehru stadium and take away all three points from the match to go top of the table.

turned it up quite late and got a goal in the 82nd minute before putting another on a platter for Ogbeche in the extra time to give their team the win.

The first half had everything but a goal. The chances flew thick and fast and the first opportunity came as early as in the sixth minute when Zuiverloon intercepted a pass in the half and tried to catch Kumar, who was off his line, but the goalkeeper got into his area in time to catch the defender's effort safely.

A minute later, attacked down the other end and Ogbeche curled first-time from the edge of the box but his shot hit the crossbar. Then, Mascia got the ball inside the box and turned and took a shot which was off-target.

NorthEast also had a legitimate penalty call turned down in the 25th minute. The French forward brought down a lofted ball inside the ball and tried to shoot with his left foot but was stonewalled by Zuiverloon. NorthEast players appealed for a penalty which the referee turned down, much to the angst of the away supporters.

More chances came NorthEast's way, one of such in the 40th minute when Borges received a cross in the middle of the box and played the ball down before firing in a shot that took a deflection off a sliding defender and went out for corner. NorthEast got another chance from the corner but Dorronsoro did incredibly to keep off the header.

NorthEast kept on attacking in the second half but failed to create clear-cut chances. Instead, Delhi came close in the 79th minute when Kaludjerovic played a little one-two inside the box and was clear through the keeper but a last ditch tackle from Gergic stopped the ball from going in. 

As a draw looked more and more likely, Gallego came up with a moment of magic in the 82nd minute. Gallego came in from the right, droped a shoulder to get away from a defender to make space for himself and then fired his shot at the near post, completely beating the goalkeeper to give his team the lead.

Delhi pushed men forward after the goal and NorthEast looked to sit back and defend. Delhi couldn't get through the NorthEast defence but had to pay dearly for a mistake by captain Kotal who was robbed off the ball in the 92nd minute by Gallego who then passed the ball into the box to Ogbeche who passed the ball into the net to make it 0-2.

The win sends NorthEast to the top of the table with 11 points from five games after winning three of them. Delhi, on the other hand, are yet to open their win account despite having played six games this season and sit at eigth position in the table.
