PANJIM: ATK Mohun Bagan had to wait until the 90th minute to score past Chennaiyin FC defence as the Mariners registered a hard-fought  1-0 win in the Indian Super League at the Nehru Stadium, Fatorda on Thursday.

David Williams headed in a dramatic match-winner to help ATKMB move to 24 points, just two points behind leaders Mumbai City FC.

The match looked to be heading to a draw, but with minutes left, ATKMB took the lead from a set-piece. Hernandez crossed in a perfect inswinging corner and Williams headed in to spark dramatic celebrations in the ATKMB camp.

Chennaiyin nearly scored the equaliser when Eli Sabia dinked in a long ball inside the box for Sipovic, who managed to beat Arindam with his goal-bound header. However, Tiri acrobatically cleared the ball before it entered the goal.

Today’s Fixture: SC East Bengal v Mumbai City FC, at Tilak Maidan, at 7.30 p.m.
