Jamshedpur FC will look to lock its position for a semifinal birth for the first time in its history when it faces Chennaiyin FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.

Owen Coyle, who had pulled Chennaiyin FC to the Indian Super League finals in 2020, has looked like a man on a mission with the new side, helping it into the top four and a win in this match will help it climb to second in the league table.

The Men of Steel have won five of its last seven matches and one of the two it lost was to its opponent tonight – Chennaiyin FC. The Marina Machans have not been able to secure a win in their last five matches and played out a tight 2-2 draw in its last match against Odisha FC.
