Delhi Dynamos maintained their unbeaten run at home despite playing the entire second half with 10 men, as they rallied twice to hold Atletico de Kolkata 2-2 in an enthralling Indian Super Lague football match in New Delhi on Sunday.

Iain Hume put the visitors ahead when he found the target in the 17th minute, as Atletico de Kolkata went at the break with their nose ahead.

Delhi Dynamos found the equaliser through Milan Singh's rasping left-footed volley in the 63rd minute. Spain's Javier Lara Grande again made it 2-1 in favour of ATK when he stuck in the 71st minute to silence the 19000-odd crowd.

Having missed a penalty a few moments ago, Dynamos skipper Florent Malouda made up when he helped his team make another comeback by scoring in the 74th minute.

Atletico de Kolkata grabbed the lead in the 17th minute when Iain Hume, the ISL's highest scorer, placed the ball perfectly off an excellent through by Sameehg Douti.

Dynamos remained on top with 17 points, while Atletico also maintained their fourth position with 13 points in their kitty.
