Meanwhile, Owen Coyle's side will be keen to bounce back from a loss in its previous game against FC Goa. Jamshedpur is currently sixth in the table, three below Bengaluru, but has only two points fewer, though it has played a game more.
Bengaluru will continue to miss the services of Ashique Kuruniyan, who looks set for a lengthy lay-off after undergoing a surgery to mend the multiple fractures he sustained to his face in the game against Odisha FC. Cuadrat said Kuruniyan had gone back to Kerala to be with his family and no date was set for his return. Jamshedpur has no major injury concerns.
Here's how the two teams could line-up:
