...
It was a pleasure bringing this live commentary to you all, here's Argha Bhattacharya signing off. Thank you.
...
Chennaiyin must be feeling terrible for not taking home all three points but Delhi players have to be given the credit for the fight they put on display.
...
Delhi had lost six in a row coming into this game but they have managed to stop Chennaiyin in their stride.
...
It's full time. Delhi have snatched a point from Chennaiyin.
...
90' GOAL! Delhi get the equaliser. Substitute Guyon scores. Cross in the box is headed by Jude in the path of Guyon who is absolutely unmarked. He slots it home with a half slide.
...
Substitution for Chennaiyin: (IN) Anirudh Thapa (OUT) Gregory Nelson
...
84' Gregory tries a volley from just outside the penalty box but the ball just sails over the crossbar.
...
83' Lumu's dummy gets the better of Calderon but the former's cross in the box is not impressive enough.
...
79' Chennaiyin are toying with Delhi by playing a lot of passes.
...
Substitution for Chennaiyin: (IN) Raphael Augusto (OUT) Rene Mihelic
...
Substitution for Delhi: (IN) Guyon Fernandez (OUT) Lallianzuala Chhangte
...
Substitution for Chennaiyin: (IN) Jude Nworuh (OUT) Francisco Fernandes 
...
68' Wasteful corner by Romeo doesn't help Delhi's cause at all.
...
Substitution for Delhi: (IN) Kalu Uche (OUT) David Ngaihte
...
61' Ngaihte makes an incisive run in the Chennaiyin box, finds himself at the end of a long ball but doesn't do much with it.
...
59' Romeo floats in a great corner but no one is at the end of it to head the ball home.
...
51' GOAL! Jeje has done it again and what a strike it is! Germanpreet feeds the ball to Jeje in the box, who nullifies the threat of two defenders with a half turn. He then places the ball in the top corner to the left of the Delhi custodian.
...
The goal on his birthday was Jeje's 18th strike in ISL. This makes him Chennaiyin FC's top scorer.
...
It's half-time in Chennai. It was surely an absorbing half with both teams getting quite a few opportunities to score. However, it is still 1-1. Delhi must consider themselves unlucky to not get a second goal as Karanjit Singh and his defence kept the them at bay from close range.
...
45' WHAT A SAVE! Ngaihte's cross in Chennaiyin box is met by Romeo, his shot is saved by Karanajit and the effort by Lallianzuala Chhangte on rebound is blocked by the Chennaiyin defence. 
...
42' GOAL! That's the equaliser and Jeje Lalpekhlua it is who registers his name on the scoresheet. Mihelic's freekick in the box is swiftly headed in by the Indian national team marksman. He placed it so perfectly that goalkeeper Xabier Iruetaguena had no chance even after a full stretch dive.
...
39' Delhi are almost able to get their second consequential shot on goal but Chennaiyin defence clear their lines in time.
...
36' Germanpreet Singh sends in a cross after receiving a clearance from a corner. The ball finds its way to Mihelic in the penalty area, he takes a first time shot but the ball misses the Delhi goal by whiskers.
...
33' Rene Mihelic takes a free-kick and floats the ball in the Delhi box, Dhanpal Ganesh finds him at the end of it but he fails to make good use of it.
...
31' Scrappy play from both teams at the moment is leading to the ball being put out of the playing arena more often than not.
...
24' GOAL! Delhi have taken the lead against the run of play. Nandakumar Sekar floats in a delightful cross from the left and youngster David Ngaihte flings himself in the air to put his head to it to send the ball in the net. Karanjit Singh had no chance of stopping that.
...
19' Dhanpal Ganesh takes full advantage of a miss pass by Delhi players and takes a shot on goal from distance but his try is deflected for a corner. Chennaiyin fail to take advantage of the resultant corner.
...
14' Nandhakumar Sekar tries to get into the Chennaiyin box with a fast paced run but the ball is taken away from his feet and cleared for a corner. The resulting corner doesn't bear fruit for Delhi.

...
8' Romeo Fernandes comes up with Delhi's first positive move as he takes the ball all the way to the edge of the opposition penalty area but then fires wide. What a waste of opportunity!
...
5' WHAT A MISS! Brilliant floating freekick in the middle of the Dynamos box is headed over the bar by Mailson Alves. Chennaiyin should have been 1-0 up there.
...
3' Gregory Nelson tries a long ranger but the ball is diverted for a corner.
...
1' Delhi defenders saunter back to clear a Chennaiyin attack in the very first minute.
...
Here are the starting line-ups:
Chennayin FC vs Delhi Dynamos
...
Chennaiyin FC have the perfect opportunity to go three points clear at the top of the table when they host Delhi Dynamos at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai at 5 30 pm today. 
 
Delhi Dyanmos would be hoping to end their six-match losing streak with a result today. 
 
John Gregory has everyone fit and available for the match, but he himself will not be available after attracting a ban from AIFF for making a few comments on the referee. 
 
Meanwhile visiting manager Miguel Angel Portugal does not have the same luxury as Albino Gomez is out with a long-term injury with Matias Mirabaje is also suspended for the game. Their top-scorer Kalu Uche is also a doubt as he is still recovering from his injury and his progress unknown to the outsiders. 
 
Chennaiyin would be banking on Jeje Lalpekhlua and Raphael Augusto for the goals with Germanpreet marshalling the midfield. 
 
Delhi Dynamos have a new keeper to put trust in as Xabi Irureta will make his debut for the side today.
