Kochi: CK Vineeth scored two goals in the last five minutes as Kerala Blasters stunned Chennaiyin FC 3-1 for their first league win over their Southern rivals in the Indian Super League match at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Saturday.

Bernard Mendy's 22nd goal put Chennaiyin FC ahead but the hosts left their rivals shocked in the second session with goals from substitute Didier Kadio in the 67th minute and Vineeth, who struck in the 85th and 89th minute to give the hosts full points.

Kerala Blasters had never won against Chennaiyin FC in the league stages and will relish the three points that takes them to the second spot with 15 points, the same as Mumbai City FC. Both teams have played 10 matches and have a goal difference of plus one.

For Kerala Blasters, who had just one point from their first three matches, this was a remarkable turnaround and follows a similar story like against FC Goa in the previous game where they fought back after being a goal down at the break.
