Jamshedpur FC (JFC) will look to return to victory as they face NorthEast United (NEUFC) in the Match 51 of the Indian Super League (ISL) at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa on Thursday.
The Red Miners got their last win on December 14 and have managed to score just two points in three games since losing their last match 1-0 to Chennaiyin FC.
On the road to Jamshedpur stands NEUFC striker Deshorn Brown, who ruined the JFC team when he last met the two teams. Khalid Jamil, head coach of the NEUFC, said his team would "aim for three points and not less".
NorthEast United, meanwhile, sit in second place from last, losing three of their last three matches, and will be without Khassa Camara, who is on national duty with Mauritania in the African Cup of Nations.
He lost midfielder Federico Gallego at the start of the season due to injury and will also be without midfielder Gani Nigam, as confirmed by the head coach.
"We know we can win games and that's what we have to do," JFC coach Owen Coyle told reporters before the game.
As the ISL reaches the summit, both sides will try to score three key points, get into the top four or keep the same hopes, alive (of the NEUFC).
