KOLKATA: Table toppers Chennai City FC would want to forget this match in a hurry after they let go a 3-0 cushion to settle for a draw against Neroca FC in the I-League on Monday.

Pedro Manzi fired home a hat-trick with goals in the 34th, 41st and 45th minutes respectively, but a second-half fight back saw Neroca equalize and avoided defeat.

Felix Chidi found the back of the net in the 52nd while Chencho Gyeltshen added the second 16 minutes later.

Aryn Williams leveled the score in the 88th minute to save the Manipuri side, who are fifth with 26 points from 17 matches, from a humiliating defeat.

Chennai still hold the pole position with 34 points having played 16 matches, two points clear of debutants and second-placed Real Kashmir.
