Bhubaneswar : Injury time goal by Rahul Kannoly Praveen helped the home team Indian Arrows to shared points with one of the title fevorite Real Kashmir Fc by scripting a 2-2 draw in their last home matches of The Hero I League at Kalinga Stadium here on Sunday.

With draw match , Real Kashmir FC took the second spot on the table with 33 points from 17 matches whereas Indian Arrows reclaim the seventh spot with 18 points from 19 matches.

Home team Indian Arrows with their strong defence line restricted the title fevorite Real Kashmir fc with 0-0 score by the end of first half. After 75 minutes of goalless football, suddenly the match sprung into life which saw 4 goals in the final 15 minutes of regulation time.

Rahim Ali won a penalty in the 78th minute when his powerful effort from outside the box hit Kashmiri defender Ravanan's hand and the referee didn't hesitate to award the youngsters a spot-kick. Skipper Amarjit slotted it calmly past Bilal Khan to open the account for the Arrows.

The Srinagar-based outfit changed the gear immediately and finally, they got the elusive goal in the 82nd minute. Vicky Meitei's corner dipped near the goal and Abednedo Tetteh, who replaced Krizo, leapt high to find the back of the neck.

After netting the equaliser, David Robertson instilled more legs inside the opponent box to net the winner and none but his son stunned the Arrows minutes later. Vicky Meitei, the craftsman of the first goal, floated a long ball from the wing to Katebe. After the defender mistimed it, Robertson volleyed it home to take the lead once again in the 90th minute.

Their joy was cut short by super-sub Rahul KP who did no mistake to score from a copybook header goal from Anwar Ali's well-taken free-kick in the first minute of the added time to leave the ground with a point from their final home match.

Though we missed two points in our last home match, but I am happy with the fight back attitude of the team. The boys were displayed a tremendous resistance to the strong Kashmir team and expressed a quality football today, said Indian Arrows coach Floyd Pinto.

In our last league round match we will face Mohun Bagan on February 28, We are likely to play in the play-off round match of Hero Super Cup here in March, added Floyd. .
