Pune: John Goossens struck a last-gasp goal to help Pune FC beat NorthEast United 1-0 in a hard-fought Hero Indian Super League in Pune on Monday.

Goossens scored the decisive goal in the 88th minute as he headed home after Dudu Omagbemi's shot hit the crossbar and rebounded at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium. NorthEast United, who had come here after impressive shows against Mumbai FC and Delhi Dynamos in their away matches, had more ball possessions but they had very few scoring chances.

With the win, Pune FC jumped to the fourth spot with seven points from five matches while NorthEast remained on third position with eight points from six matches.
