The Irish coach suggested Jamshedpur build on his performance against Hyderabad and try to get as many positive results as possible…
Jamshedpur FC hope to find their way back after a three-game winless streak when they face the Kerala Blasters in their 14th game of the current Indian Super League (ISL) season.
The Men of Steel were defeated by the Yellow Army just 17 days ago, but their trainer Owen Coyle suggested the previous result would have no bearing on Wednesday’s clash.
“In the previous match we were in very good condition to win the match, but we made individual mistakes. It can happen in football. What happened in that game has nothing to do with tomorrow’s game. We have to be at our best. ”
The former Chennaiyin manager praised new signings Farukh Choudhary and Len Doungel who joined the club last week from Mumbai City and FC Goa respectively. Both players were involved in Jamshedpur’s last game against Hyderabad and Coyle suggested they had enriched the team’s attack.
“With the arrival of Farukh (Chaudhary) and Len Doungel, they added a great dimension to our forward game and that was evident in the Hyderabad game. We want to stay positive. They (Kerala Blasters) are an attack team and they will. want the three points. They have the momentum with their unbeaten run. We have to start our race undefeated. It started with a draw against Hyderabad and now what we have to do is continue the race unbeaten until the end of the season, ”said Coyle.
Australia striker Nicholas Fitzgerald has only had 72 minutes of play at the club since the striker was injured since the start of the campaign. However, Coyle suggested that the striker has slowly regained his physical form and could take the field against the Kerala Blasters.
“Nic (Nicholas) Fitzegarld is training really hard. He has obviously been injured since the start of the season. He’s come back to a few games so I hope he gets involved tomorrow night and it will be nice to see him at his best. ”
The seasoned manager also spoke about how extremely competitive ISL is and how teams at the bottom of the rankings can create upheaval and climb the ranks in no time.
“What the league has shown is if you’re in first position or in 11 position, everyone is able to beat and take points from each other. We have to make sure that we are doing well. Against Hyderabad, the boys worked very hard. I saw how We had a lot of extra opportunities in the second half. After doing well, we still need to be more offensive and creative and I think that if every staff member does their best we are able to do it, ”signed the Jamshedpur head coach.
