Debjit Majumder (5/10) - Debjit Majumder had a poor night in the ATK goal as he struggled to keep out the famed FC Pune City attack. He was beaten three times on the night which included two long-range goals from outside the box.

Prabir Das (7/10) - The right-back for the defending champions was a lively presence on his flank as he kept the young Sahil Panwar busy. He kept making overlapping runs and put in some good crosses for the attackers in the box.

Tom Thorpe (6/10) - The usually stable centre-back had a troublesome night as ATK struggled to contain the persistent Pune attackers. He was taken off at the hour mark and was replaced by David Cotterell, who made his debut in the ISL.

Jordi Montel (5/10) - The Spanish centre-back had a poor night in the office tonight as he struggled to keep the Pune attackers in check. He was caught on many occasions by the through balls from the midfield as ATK ended up conceding thrice.

Keegan Pereira (5.5/10) - The left-back for the away side, who is generally highly active on his flank at both ends was restricted to the defence and long-balls as Pune pressed with intensity.

Rupert Nongrum (5.5/10) - The 21-year-old had a busy night in the midfield as ATK tried their best to contain the Pune attacking threat.

Conor Thomas (6/10) - The hard-tackling Englishman was kept on his toes throughout the match as FC Pune City kept pressuring the ATK midfield. He made a lot of clearances and interceptions as he played in front of the defence.

Ryan Taylor (6/10) - The former Newcastle United man was the midfield general for the ATK side as he moved the ball around in the middle of the park. He was the setpiece taker for Sheringham's side but failed to breach the Pune defenders.

Zequinha (6.5/10) - The Portuguese attacker was perhaps the lone ATK attacker who managed to trouble the FC Pune City defence on a couple of occasions. He kept the right-back for the Pune side busy throughout the match as he kept making good runs on the flank.

Hitesh Sharma (5/10) - The former Mumbai FC midfielder played behind the striker in the attack but had a quiet night as ATK struggled to break through the Pune defence. He was replaced at the end of the first half by Robin Singh.

Jayesh Rane (6/10) - Jayesh Rane started the match as the lone striker for the away side in the first half. He was kept quiet for the most part by the well-organised Pune defenders. After Robin Singh's arrival, he played a little behind in the midfield and even had a couple of shots on goal.

Substitutes:

Robin Singh (4.5/10) - The former FC Goa striker came on for Hitesh Sharma at the start of the second half as Teddy Sheringham put on more firepower in the attack.

David Cotterell (6/10) - The former Welsh international made his debut in the ISL and replaced Tom Thorpe and played on the wings for the away side. He was sharp on the ball and put in great crosses from the right side for the ATK attackers in the box.

Bipin Singh (4.5/10) - The youngster came on for the last 10 minutes in place of Jayesh Rane as ATK pushed on for the consolation goal.
