The win takes Delhi United above Delhi Dynamos' and FC Pune City's reserve teams in Group A...

Delhi United registered a 3-0 win over Lonestar Kashmir in their Group A clash of the ongoing second division I-League at the Ambedkar stadium, on Tuesday evening.

Mohammed Shahjahan opened the scoring for Delhi United by converting an 18th-minute penalty before Sunny Varun Thakur gave his side a 2-0 lead at half-time. Substitute Rungsing Muinao's second-half strike (71') sealed full points for the Delhi-based club. 

Lonestar, who had lost 2-1 against Real Kashmir in a derby before their 3-3 draw against visitors FC Pune City B team, are however not the only side without a win in the group. The Pune-based team only have three draws to show so far.

Delhi United were one of the sides to draw (0-0) against Pune City B team before they were beaten 4-2 by Hindustan in their opener.

The Shaji Prabakaran-owned side, who picked up their first three points of the campaign, will have their next test against Real Kashmir on April 7 while Lonestar Kashmir will be looking to break their winless run of four matches when they face Hindustan a day earlier.
