Mumbai, April 23 (IANS) Yuta Kinowaki produced a late equaliser as Shillong Lajong FC held Mumbai FC to a 1-1 draw in an I-League football match at the Cooperage Stadium here on Sunday evening.

Mumbai took the lead almost immediately after the start when Victorino Fernandes found the net in the second minute with a powerful shot following a build up from the midfield.

However, Kinowaki (90th minute) scored in the final minute of regulation time to rescue a point for the visitors.

Lajong thus held on to the fifth spot on the league table with 25 points from 17 matches.

Mumbai on the other hand, continue to languish in the relegation zone as they are second from bottom in the 10-team table with a mere 13 points from 17 matches.

They are almost sure to be relegated as with only one game left in their I-League campaign this season, even a victory will not enable them to go past eighth placed Chennai City FC who have 17 points.
