Jamshedpur FC leaves for Chennai for next match
Buoyed by series of victories, Jamshedpur FC left the Steel City for Chennai via Ranchi on Wednesday. Led by coach Steve Coppell , the players left their residential apartments by official team bus in the morning.
The team will take on their next match against Chennaiyin FC in a crucial ISL match on February 18.
“The boys are charged with confidence and want to maintain the same movement on the grounds. We know we posted a difficult win over Northeast we are looking to the Chennai match with positive attitude,” noted a team official said.
The match against Chennai is crucial as it decide the chances of JFC’s journey to move to the knock-out stage.
An overhead kick from Wellington Priori's resulting into a stunning goal gave Jamshedpur FC a vital 1-0 victory over NorthEast United FC to keep them in the top three of the Hero Indian Super League played at JRD Tata Sports Complex on February 10.
Steve Coppell's side have so far won three matches in a row at the JRD Tata Sports Complex, Jamshedpur, and occupy the third spot with 25 points, the same as second-placed FC Pune City who have a better goal-difference and have a match in hand.
Priori's incredible goal came in the 50th minute. It was a long throw in from Izu Azuka which found Wellington in the box. He controlled it with his thigh and then executed the perfect overhead kick to give Jamshedpur the lead. The strike is certainly one of the best of the season and overshadowed goalkeeper Subrata Paul's achievement of becoming the first man to keep 20 clean sheets in the Hero ISL.
After a goalless first session, the deadlock was broken minutes after Coppell had introduced Mehtab Hossain for Ashim Biswas. It looked defensive on paper but gave them stability in midfield. Priori kept growing in confidence for the rest of the half as well.
Meanwhile, currently sixth on the ISL points table, FC Goa desperately needs a win against fourth-placed Chennaiyin FC on Thursday to stay in the hunt for a top-four finish. At the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, FC Goa will be hoping the home conditions will favour them in the game that is equally important for John Gregory's Chennaiyin FC. The visitors have a four-point lead over FC Goa but Lobera's side still has a game in hand, and a win will strengthen their chances of making it to playoffs and put Chennaiyin FC under pressure for the fourth place on the table.
