Kolkata: East Bengal jumped to the second place, four points shy of leaders Bengaluru FC with a game in hand, after a 3-1 victory over Pune FC in their I-League fixture at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here on Saturday.

Lalrindika Ralte produced a spectacular double (43rd and 70th minutes) after Edeh Chidi gave an 18th minute lead to be the architects in their side's win, while Pune FC reduced the margin through Mirjan Pavlovic (58th).

Unbeaten from eight matches, East Bengal's third win on the trot for the first time since November 2012 has added spark to their title chase as they now travel to Churchill Brothers and Pune FC in two away matches before concluding their campaign in Kolkata against United SC.
