Adil Khan (32nd), Diego Carlos (59th) and Rohit Kumar (77th) scored the goals to help Pune City bounce back from their defeat against Chennaiyin FC in the last match.

After Saturday's win, Pune kept their hopes alive of reaching the knockout stage as they are firmly placed at the third spot with 19 points, one behind second-placed Chennaiyin FC and two adrift of Bengaluru FC.

It was Adil Khan, who drew the first blood for Pune when he jumped over all his markers and found the back of the net with a solid header after Marcelinho took a curling corner kick.

At the stroke of an hour, Diego Carlos doubled the lead when he ran down with a brilliant solo effort and dribbled past one defender and found the back of the goal post with a brilliant shot from the edge of the box.

Rohit Kumar put the final nail on ATK's coffin with a stunning goal from the edge of the box after being fed by Sarthak Golui, who dribbled past Taylor.

Pune will now host Jamshedpur FC here on Wednesday, while ATK faces Chennaiyin at home on Thursday.
