Delhi Dynamos relied on the late strike of substitute Kalu Uche to defeat NorthEast United FC on Wednesday.

Being timid in the first half, it was the bottom-placed Dynamos who broke the deadlock with a Kalu Uche header in the 87th minute at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium.

David Ngaihte floated in a cross from the right and the ball just held up for Uche, who jumped to produce a header, not giving the NorthEast United goalkeeper any chance. Incidentally, the goal was the only shot on target by the Dynamos in the 90 plus four minutes of added time.
