A last-gasp goal by substitute Ninthoinganba Meetei helped Chennaiyin FC settle for an intense 1-1 draw against East Bengal in the Indian Super League here on Saturday.


As the ISL action returned from international break, Owen Coyle and his men were dealt with an early blow as Ayush Adhikari found the back of his own net to get his team trailing in the 29th minute.


In front of a home support, the Marina Machans made a comeback with Ninthoinganba's 86th minute goal.
Brazilian Rafael Crivellaro's sharp creative vision blended brilliantly with Ninthoinganba's accuracy in front of goal to ensure that they didn't succumb to a second straight defeat at home.


With two goals and assists each, Crivellaro has made an impact many times for Chennaiyin this season. He was again at the centre of it all with an accurate pass to Ninthoinganba on the right side of the 18-yard box.
