Mumbai: Following their 2-0 win over nine-member Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League game here, NorthEast United FC's head coach Ricki Herbert said he was disappointed that his team couldn't defeat their under-strength opponents by a bigger margin.

"It's not good to see only 8-9 players on the field, but it was not my call. But it was disappointing that we did not score at least two more goals," Herbert said at the post-match press conference.

Mumbai were reduced to nine men following a freakish hamstring injury to marquee player and second half substitute Fredrik Ljungberg in the 73rd minute and a double booking for centre-back Pavel Cmovs.
