ISL: Kerala striker Hume's hat-trick overwhelms Delhi

Indian Super League Iain Hume's Hattrick Helps Kerala Blasters Beat Delhi Dynamos 3-1

Indian Super League Iain Hume's Hattrick Helps Kerala Blasters Beat Delhi Dynamos 3-1

Kerala Blasters' striker Iain Hume finally found his scoring boots as his first hat-trick of the season saw Delhi Dynamos lose 1-3 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Wednesday.

For bottom-placed Delhi Dynamos, it was their seventh loss of the campaign.

Iain Hume is like an ageless wonder in the ISL. Courage Pekuson broke down the left to get past Kotal inside the box and set it up for Hume, who slotted the ball home. Centre-back Gabriel Cichero made a lunge to block the cross but the ricocheted ball fell to Hume who slid the ball into the net. After the restart, Delhi Dynamos showed more impetus going forward. The foul turned out to be a decisive one as the home-team restored parity through Kotal's header from the free kick taken by winger Romeo Fernandez.

Things were going well Kerala but in the 40th minute star forward Dimtiri Berbatov had to come off due to what looked like a hamstring injury. He returned to the pitch with a bandage on, and struck twice in the second half to floor the home side. Hume went past two defenders to slot an astonishing finish to the far post.

Hume scored for the Blasters in the 12th minute and Delhi breached the Blasters' defence in 44th minute. If the new Blasters coach David James could leave the field with a victory in his first away game, it was mainly because of Hume.

Following the win, their second in nine matches, takes Kerala to 11 points as they leapfrogged defending champions ATK (9) and debutant Jamshedpur (10) on the ISL points table.
