Indian Player Ratings: Albino Gomes shines for Delhi, Robin Gurung has a night to forget
Written by: Ali Shibil Roshan
Lallianzuala Chhangte's was also amongst the standout players from the match.
In what was an end-to-end battle as hosts Delhi Dynamos managed to hold Jamshedpur FC, to a 2-2 draw at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi. The visitors took the lead through a Sergio Cidoncha goal in the 39th minute of the game. Delhi upped their game and pressed harder in the second half and reaped its rewards, as Lallianzuala Chhangte and Adria Carmona scored for Josep Gombau's side in quick succession after the interval. However, Delhi's hopes of a victory were put to bed by captain Tiri, who scored a stunning header in the 72nd minute to restore parity.
An entertaining match which had its fair share of twists and turns, saw @DelhiDynamos coming back from a goal down to strike two before @JamshedpurFC equalised to share points.— Indian Super League (@IndSuperLeague) November 4, 2018

Watch: Delhi Dynamos 2-2 Jamshedpur FC
Let's take a look at how the Indian players fared in the game:
Sajid Dhot - 6.0
Was tasked with thwarting Jamshedpur's Michael Soosairaj from wreaking havoc inside the penalty box. Delivered a solid outing, but got outplayed by the winger on a few occasions. Overall, a good performance from this defender.
Narayan Das - 5.0
This Indian International full-back had a busy game in the second half, especially after Delhi scored their second goal of the match. Jamshedpur managed to initiate a few attacking moves down the left flank, which he should have done better to avoid.
Lallianzuala Chhangte - 7.0
Scored the first goal and orchestrated the second for the Dynamos. Was a menacing presence on the right flank. Foresaw Robin Gurung's minus pass, capitalized on it and brought Delhi back into the game. However, he was dispossessed on numerous occasions and it is an area where the youngster has to improve.
Bikramjit Singh - 5.0
Fared much better in the second half. Played a part in building some attacking moves for Delhi. Should have done better though.
Shubam Sarangi - 4.0
Failed to impress in the first half. Gombau replaced him with Carmona at the beginning of the second half, a move that later proved to be right and effective. The youngster could and should have done better in the first 45.
Albino Gomes - 9.0
Came off the bench in the second half and delivered an incredible performance. Denied the Jamshedpur attempts on numerous occasions with some miraculous saves. Could not do much to prevent the equalizer scored by Tiri, who headed the ball into an open net after Marcos Tebar's poor clearance.
Subrata Paul - 5.0
Sloppy defending saw Paul concede twice. He could not have done better to prevent Chhangte from scoring the first goal for Delhi, which turned the tide. Similarly, a poor clearance from Tiri saw Carmona capitalize and score Delhi's second. Otherwise, he was okay.
Robin Gurung - 4.0
A day to forget for this 26-year-old. It was his misplaced pass that Chhangte exploited to cancel out Cidoncha's opener for the visitors and the hosts built on that momentum to score the second goal. Could have scored the winner for Jamshedpur in the 93rd minute, but his attempt went wide off the target.
Pratik Chowdhary - 5.0
A solid performance from Pratik, but there were occasions where he could have fared much better. Was replaced by Mobashir Rahman in the 66th minute, as Jamshedpur looked to get back on track.
Bikash Jairu - 5.0
Delhi Dynamos' attackers tested Jairu in the second half with some smart movements. The inclusion of Carmona proved to be a masterclass and he tested Bikash and the 36-year-old, understandably floundered.
Michael Soosairaj - 6.0
Not as impressive as he was against FC Goa in their recent fixture. Soosairaj, who did not make it into the Indian squad despite impressive performances in the ISL, was a menacing presence. Got the better of Sajid Dhot on some occasions.
Gaurav Mukhi - 6.0

Mukhi had an exquisite curler saved
Like Soosairaj, Mukhi also threatened Delhi with some smart and incisive attacking movements. Did a decent job, but a goal did not come. He is making it big with some brilliant performances for Jamshedpur. Needs to improve certain aspects of his game, but he is already a promising prospect.
Mobashir Rahman - 4.0
Replaced Pratik Chowdhary in the second half, but couldn't deliver the goods for his side.
