Kochi: Ghanaian striker Richard Gadze's late strike in the 87th minute ensured third straight victory for Delhi Dynamos as they beat hosts Kerala Blasters 1-0 in the Indian Super League football tournament here today.

Substitute Gadze headed home a Florent Malouda cross ashe timed his jump to perfection heading home from close range much to the dismay of the home fans and team's owner Sachin Tendulkar, who graced the stands.

Dynamos now have 9 points from four games after their third win and straightaway jumped to the second spot in the league table behind Pune City FC. Dynamos despite having equal number of points trail due to an inferior goal difference.

Dynamos started on a positive note as Robin Singh's shot was saved by opposition goalie Stephen Bywater.

In the fifth minute, Francis Fernandes provided a defence splitting through for Gustavo Dos Santos but the Brazilian's first touch wasn't a great one and by the time he took the second stroke, Bywater anticipated to collect the ball.

Peter ramage had a good game at the heart of the Blasters defence as he kept out the dangerous floaters sent from wide right by the former French international Malouda.

In the 43rd minute, a free-kick saw Robin failed to provide the finishing touches as it beat Bywater before going out.

Locked goalless at half-time, profligate Robin missed the chance of the match in the 67th minute after he had sights of an open goal from a rebound which he shot over.

Finally, it was Gadze, who brought smiles in the face of Dynamos manager Roberto Carlos with a perfect header.
