It was Dynamos' second home win at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium after three consecutive 1-1 draws that catapulted them to the second position in the standings, level on 18 points from 10 matches with leaders FC Goa, only trailing them on goal difference.

English striker Adil Nabi and defenders Anas Edathodika and Norweigian great John Arne Riise got on to the scoresheet to round off a satisfactory day for Dynamos. Pune's marquee man Romanian Adrian Mutu's free-kick conversion in the dying seconds of the match was only an aberration from the flow of the game.

Pune dropped a place after their demoralizing loss, staying on 15 points having played a game more than Dynamos. Dynamos have struggled for goal scoring only eight in nine matches and it was a pity that a poor turnout witnessed (around 4,000) Dynamos' most neat display at home in the tournament so far.
