Jamshedpur FC started with a loss against Chennaiyin FC, but since then, has looked solid and it was time when they registered the first win of the season.

Even though SC East Bengal is yet to score a goal this season, Jamshedpur FC’s head coach Owen Coyle feels that the game is going to be as tough as the ATK-Mohun Bagan game.
"Having watched East Bengal's games, they have been very unlucky not to take something from all three games. They've given great performances. They have some bad luck with some injuries here and there,” said Owen Coyle, during the pre-match press conference.
"[They have] very good players [and a] very good coach in Robbie Fowler. So it's going to be a very tough game, as tough it was against ATK Mohun Bagan. We have to make sure we are ready for that," added the manager.
According to Owen Coyle, SC East Bengal head coach Robbie Fowler is a very good coach and has proved himself in his past assignments. The Jamshedpur FC boss feels that the longer Fowler stays with SC East Bengal, the team will turn into a force to reckon with.
“Robbie Fowler has already shown, with the jobs that he has had, that he is a very good coach. There's no doubt that, the longer they spend together, East Bengal will be a real force to reckon with when they play according to Robbie's game,” said Fowler.
