The Spaniard’s dangerous delivery was met at the near post by Paartalu who beat Narender Gahlot in the air and sent a powerful header into the net that left Subrata Paul with no chance.Jamshedpur’s new signing David Grande had a couple of good moments in the first half, but the team went into the break without registering a single shot on target.
