Jamshedpur FC Head Coach Owen Coyle After the Game

"I said to the boys, we had to keep trying. It was important three points for both teams. They are a dangerous team. Hopefully Valskis will be there for the next game vs ATK. We have not been with 5 foreigners for most part of the season, Grande is just coming back. As a coach, you have to look for different ways to win. It's a marvellous three points.

"With two days to prepare for the game, he took a knock and was not ready. We've still got a long way to improve. I've brought in some young players. We have to try and keep trying to win games and see if it works for us. In the first half, we drew ATK, beat Bengaluru. I tell all players to give their best, at least for the fans.

"Ideally I would love to play attacking but you need personnel to do that. But if not, you have to find different ways to win. Even today, injuries and boys coming in, I am pleased with the collective effort. With that you always have chance to win. We have to try and win, draws are not going to be enough. Keep the pressure off, it's not our spot, it's someone else to give away."

Chennaiyin FC Head Coach Csaba Laszlo After the Match

"We have to go out and play football. We have three games to go and the playoffs with this game is not possible for us anymore. We are sportsmen and we have to try and win the remaining games. Today again I felt the better team lost. Football for us is very painful. I don't understand that Thoi was clear and he tried to pass and then we are punished with an own goal. I am sorry for the boys, everybody tried their best. I put offensive people till the end because I wanted to win the game. But unfortunately, we lost.

"This was a really big moment. We pressed the opponent, we were the better team. In that moment, I don't know what he saw in the middle. But I will tell Thoi to go out there in the next game and look to score. I am also sorry that in the offense we have suffered in this season, we have created chances, even today, we have a couple, especially Thoi had the best chance. But he just switched off, I don't know why. But we have to go out and try to win the next games.

"Believe me if Thapa is 100 per cent fit, he would be on the pitch. He told me in the last training, that he can give 50 60 per cent, so we decided to save him. Crivellaro is not there and the same fear was with Thapa. If a player says he can't give 100 per cent because of strain in the muscle, I don't think it is right to put someone in the field with injury."

Hero of the Match Stephen Eze After the Game

"We fight very well today, we fought as a team, I am very happy the goal came at the right time.

"For me, we played very good. Nothing was missing, we just waited for the right time. And most important, we have the three points.

"We are looking forward to the next game. This is football and anything can happen. We are going to focus on the next game."

FULL TIME

Jamshedpur FC didn't do much for most part of the game but it was that one moment from David Grande when his shot deflected off Enes Sipovic into the goal helped Jamshedpur get a very important 1-0 win over Chennaiyin FC. The difficult season for Chennaiyin FC continues as they just can't find the back of the net despite creating a whole lot of chances, especially in the first half. Thoi Singh had a huge chance to put Chennaiyin in the lead seconds before the Sipovic own goal but in the end, it was not to be and Chennaiyin go empty-handed once more.

Chennaiyin FC and Jamshedpur FC last played on November 24, where Chennaiyin emerged victorious 2-1. It was that match where Anirudh Thapa scored the fastest goal of the season in the first minute itself. Esmael Goncalves then scored a penalty in the 26th minute to give Chennaiyin a two-goal lead. The deficit was cut by Jamshedpur in the 37th minute through Valskis but eventually, Chennaiyin held on to win the game.

Chennaiyin now find themselves six points off the top four. The task appears difficult, but it's still mathematically possible. And Chennaiyin coach Csaba Laszlo has urged his team to keep fighting till the end. "We still hope and we don't give up our target of being in the top four. The possibility is there. And tomorrow's game will not only be important for Jamshedpur but for the other teams as well," he said. Chennaiyin's struggles in front of goal have continued to cost them points despite the two-time winners creating plenty of chances. They have now not scored from open play for five games straight. "We know we are capable of winning games but we need to use our chances better. Even in the offensive part, we need more consistency. To miss so many chances after creating them isn't normal. But we trust our players and we keep going and try to play our football," Laszlo said.

Jamshedpur are placed a spot above their opponents with just a point separating them. "They're a tough team," said JFC coach Owen Coyle. "They've certainly created a lot of chances, but they haven't been as clinical as what they could be, but we know they are very tough opponents. We can look to the next game as a cup final because we have to get points from that to keep on trying to reduce the deficit. Obviously, the teams that are already there have the advantage. And that's the only way for us to get there. We have to try and win games to reach that spot if it becomes available."
