Pune FC staged a brilliant comeback after trailing by a goal to down Air India 2-1 in the round 17 I-League encounter at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi-Pune, on Friday.

The visitors closed the first half sitting comfortable on a one goal lead through Okorogor Praise (31'). The home side came on with renewed vigour after the break to dominate the second session as Edmar Figueira (70') and Arata Izumi (75') netted to complete the win.

Pune FC took their points tally to 19 after Round 17 and continue to occupy 9th place, while Air India remain static at 11 points and 13th position.

A lob from right winger Manjit Singh found Okorogor Praise who did well to flick the ball above the rival defense and volley the ball past a diving custodian Subrata Paul around the half hour mark.

After the change of ends, the hosts pressed hard and were rewarded when medio Asim Hassan floated in a precise cross from midfield straight to the feet of Edmar. The big Brazilian, controlled and sent in a left footer past defender Manjit and goalkeeper Souvik Mondal to the far corner.

Five minutes later, Pune FC midfielder Paresh Shivalkar's attempt crashed against the upright, but Arata who lurked in the penalty box won the rebound and scored the second goal for his side with a composed right footer.

Pune FC have only registered their fourth win of the campaign with three on home ground as they now take their most recent unbeaten run to five matches.
