Fijian Captain Roy Krishna scored a goal and helped Bengaluru FC register a 3-1 win over Odisha FC in the Indian Super League on Saturday.
The win still leaves Simon Grayson’s side three points adrift of a playoff position (16 points from 14 matches to FC Goa’s 19 from 13).
But it will be a morale-booster ahead of the business end where of the six remaining games four are at home.
Rohit Kumar opened Bengaluru FC’s first goal in the 25th minute before Krishna followed with the second three minutes later.
Odisha hit back after the break with Diego Mauricio earning a penalty and then converting.
Substitute Pablo Perez eventually sealed it in injury time, making it the first time this season for Bengaluru FC to score three goals in a fixture.
