Sporting Clube de Goa rallied from behind to down fighting State Bank of Tranvancore (SBT) 3-1 to score their second successive win in the ninth round of the National Football League (NFL) match at Nehru stadium in Goa on Sunday.

SBT drew the first blood in the 57th minute through Lanel Thomas but after Adewusi Adebayo equalised in the 61st minute, Sporting's star striker Dudu struck a brace in the 64th and 82nd minutes to give Sporting full points.

SBT got a jolt soon after Lanel's goal when defender V Sivakumar got marching orders from referee N Mohan for receiving double booking. Taking advantage of this, Sporting scored thrice to register victory.

The win took Sporting Clube to 10 points from five matches, the same as Tollygunge but are placed above them on the sixth place on account of better goal difference.

SBT, who have played nine matches, remained on nine points.
