Powered by two late goals, Jamshedpur FC (JFC) edged past East Bengal FC 2-1 in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the JRD Tata Sports Complex on Thursday.

Nandhakumar Sekar drew first blood for East Bengal. Japanese star Rei Tachikawa scored the equaliser in the 80th minute, which was followed by a winner by French playmaker Jeremy Manzorro in added time of the second half to snatch three points from the hands of the Red & Gold Brigade.

East Bengal FC had notched their first win in six matches when they went past Hyderabad FC 1-0 away from home last Saturday.

Whilst head coach Carles Cuadrat would have wanted that win to infuse confidence within the setup, they started this game on the backfoot.

Nandhakumar and his fifth goal of the season deserve applause as his partnership with Cleiton Silva reflected the way the two of them interlinked in a rare moment that the Jamshedpur FC backline had gone off-guard.

Cleiton cut into the middle from the left, but his shot took a deflection off Wungngayam Muirang and landed in Nandhakumar’s path.

He shot it between the legs of TP Rehenesh to bag the opener heading into the half-time break.
