...
That's all from today's game. Do join us tomorrow for more ISL action. Until then, goodbye and goodnight!
...
The referee blows the whistle for the final time. It is an important victory for the Kerala Blasters. A comfortable one, as North East could not do much with 10 men. A flying header from CK Vineeth sees the Men in Yellow coming out on top. 
...
90+3' Hume replaces Pekuson.
...
90+1' CHANCE WASTED! Siifneos is onside but instead of shooting, he tries to find Pekuson. The pass, tpugh, is poor and is easily intercepted. 
...
89' Vineeth tried to take on Sambinha but the defender uses his strength well to see out the danger.
...
87' Chance for North East! Fortes' corner is flicked on by Diaz at first post. It is just to heavy for Nirmal, though.
...
86' Fortes, the substitute, runs through Kerala's defence. Jhingan concedes a corner.
...
84' Kerala are looking to just play down the minutes.
...
79' A mini-brawl has broken out here. Diaz kicks out at Pekuson twice as Sifneos rushes in to aid his teammate. Now, Nirmal is getting involved as well. What's the referee going to do here?

Diaz gets a yellow card. He is fortunate to get away, actually.
...
77' Freekick for Kerala from about 40 yards out. Miland Singh sends in a lobbed cross to the far post as Jhingan runs forward to meet it. He can't do enough to keep it on target though.
...
75' Goncalves is replaced by Fortes.
...
74' That's a brilliant lofted pass from Milan Singh from the right-hand side. Pekuson, though, cannot get to the end of it. Ravi Kumar charges out and clears the ball.
...
72' That was a great chance for Danilo. Borges wins the ball from Brown and plays it to  Doungel. Doungel finds Danilo with a cross who has room to shoot. However, Rino Anto dives across and makes a terrific block.
...
70' That was well kept in by Danilo, who turns and runs at Jhingan. The Indian defender does well and gets a goal-kick for his team. 
...
68' Jackichand Singh has been replaced by Milan Singh.
...
67' Wes Brown has been very impressive tonight. The former United man has won the ball well for the home side and sprayed the passes on both sides of the field. That time again. he was there to see out Paes, who had a little bit of space to work with.
...
65' Good save by Ravi Kumar. Jackichand Singh tries his luck from outside the box, his left-footed effort is saved by the substitute goalkeeper.
...
63' North East still trying to make something off the match. They are pressing the opposition and looking to create chances.
...
59' Marcinho is replaced by Luis Paes.
...
56' HITS THE POST! Pekuson sends the onrushing Lalruatthara through on goal. He could have squared it off for Sifneos but he decided to go far post himself. His shot comes off the post as NorthEast United survive. 
...
54' Yellow card for Jhingan. The defender with a little kick at Marcinho from behind. Totally unnecessary.
...
52' Kerala, with their numerical advantage, are attacking time and again. It looks like only a matter of time before the second goal of the match.
...
50' Another corner, another chance for Kerala! This time Jackchand is unmarked in the far-post. His header, however, is just wide.
...
48' HUGE CHANCE! Vineeth combines with Pekuson who looks through on goal. His effort, though, is deflected for a corner by Sambinha. The corner-kick presents with Pekuson with another chance whose effort goes wide. 
...
46' Jhingan wins the ball and plays it quickly to Vineeth. The goalscorer finds Pekuson who plays it back for him but the pass had too much pace there and Ravi Kumar collects it. 

...
The payers are coming onto the pitch, The second half will begin shortly.
...
The referee blows the whistle to mark the end of an action-packed first half. North East had plenty of the ball in the initial stages but it was Kerala who found the back of the net through CK Vineeth. The visiting team will have to play the second half with 10 men as goalkeeper Rehenesh was sent off for a poor challenge on Sifneos.

More action coming up in the second half. Stay tuned.
...
45+1' The freekick comes to nothing as Peksuon's freekick is blocked by the wall.
...
Narzary is sacrificed as Ravi Kumar, the goalkeeper, replaces him. 
...
42' That's a RED CARD! Rehenish is sent off! 

It was Pekuson who found Sifneos with a delightful through pass. Sifneos was through one-on-one with the keeper who charges out and fouls him just outside the box. The Dutch striker recovers and kicks the ball into the net but the referee has already called it back to the initial foul.
...
40' Good work from Narzary to fall back and help out his defence. He stops Jackichand Singh in his stride and his team can break.
...
38' Lakic-Pesic is called back for an off the ball foul on Narzary. The referee lets him off the hook with a warning.
...
35' Corner for North East as Marcinho's cross is headed out by Rino Anto. It comes to nothing.
...
33' Diaz fouls Vineeth and Hanghal is livid. He is seen complaining to the referee demanding a card. Diaz was lucky to escape with a warning.
...
31' SHOT! Marcinho attempts a curler from a long way out.  His effort goes just wide.
...
29' Jackichand tries to work his way into the North East penalty box. Goncalves uses his body strength well to keep the danger at bay.
...
26' Good chance for  North East. Doungel and Danilo combine to find some space. Danilo lays it out for Marcinho but it is intercepted by Jhingan.
...
23' GOOOAAAALLLL! It's that man again! It's CK Vineeth! Jhingan finds the overlapping Rino Anto with the perfectly weighted pass. Anto takes a touch and the sends in a delightful cross for Vineeth, who is unmarked in the box. The striker makes no mistake.

1-0.
...
19' Good chance for North East. Marcinho sends Danilo down the right flank, who manages to send in a dangerous cross. Jhingan, again, is positioned perfectly to deflect it for a corner.
...
18' Kerala is gradually finding their footing. They are looking to spread the ball to the wide areas and creating space.
