NEUFC were the better side in the opening half, dominating possession and creating goal-
scoring opportunities. They deservedly went into the break with a one-goal cushion which
could have been more, but for some fine saves by JFC goalkeeper TP Rehenesh.

It was Jamshedpur who created the first big chance of the game in the eighth minute but
NEUFC custodian Subasish Roy Chowdhury denied them the opener. After Jamshedpur won a throw-in, Khassa Camara’s poor clearance fell towards Nerijus Valskis, who found Jadhav just outside the box.

The youngster, in turn, whipped a cross for Valskis, who controlled the ball and struck on the volley but saw his shot blocked by Chowdhury.

The best chance for NEUFC came in the 32nd minute. Luis Machado, a constant livewire
in the first half, came close to breaking the deadlock but Rehenesh did well to keep it out
thanks to a brilliant acrobatic effort.

Suhair VP delivered a cross for the Portuguese, who attempted an overhead kick which
was parried away. Just four minutes later, NEUFC made amends for it as they scored from a set-piece.

Federico Gallego delivered a delicious cross from the corner flag and Mehta rose above
his marker at the far post to head the ball into the net. Jamshedpur started strong in the second half, pushing their opponents on the back foot.
However, a defensive error saw them concede again.

Isaac Vanmalsawma, brought on at half-time, gave the ball away after a sloppy pass.
Gallego received the ball from Machado and threaded a through pass for substitute Brown,
who slotted it past Rehenesh.

Jamshedpur had a chance to cut down their deficit after Chowdhury put himself in trouble,
courtesy of a miscued goal kick. The ball was intercepted by Valskis, who made a run into
the box and shot on goal but Chowdhury redeemed himself with a crucial save.

Coyle’s side received a glimmer of hope late on in the game after captain Hartley scored
through a corner, which was his first for Jamshedpur. They continued to test NEUFC and could have bagged a dramatic equaliser in injury time but Valskis fluffed the chance. Hartley played a long ball for the Lithuanian who blazed his
header over the bar.
