East Bengal are ninth in the 11-team league with 12 points from 12 matches.

After ending their lean run on home soil with a win against Bengaluru FC, East Bengal suffered a 3-1 defeat in Odisha.

Cleiton Silva scored his eighth goal of the season last week and sits at the top of the goal-scoring charts. The Brazilian forward has now scored in two consecutive games and will be aiming to extend that run against Jamshedpur FC.

Head coach Stephen Constantine could still be without first-choice goalkeeper Kamaljit Singh. However, in attack, he will receive a boost as VP Suhair will be back in the squad after serving his suspension last week.
