While Jamshedpur FC will be disappointed not to have picked more than two points from their opening two fixtures, Steve Coppell would be satisfied with the clean-sheets maintained by his troops in both the games. Now, the focus for the Men of Steel will shift to clinching full points on home soil.

Steve Coppell's sides have a reputation for being very hard to break down and ATK will have their work cut out in Jamshedpur. Also, this being the first game at home, the team will be eager to start on the right note. Coppell is likely to use the pace of his wingers like Sameehg Doutie, Kervens Belfort and Trindade Goncalves to launch counter-attacks against ATK who have shown that they like to keep the ball. 

ATK will be worried by the growing number of players on the injury list. What would concern Sheringham is the fact that most of the players have soft tissue injuries. The Kolkata outfit need to get a positive result from their away fixture against Jamshedpur FC as failure to pick a win will see them lag behind on the table.
Debjit Majumder too needs to up his game after a poor performance against Pune City. Their midfield duo of Conor Thomas and Eugeneson Lyngdoh lacked creativity of any sort as their strikers were shorn of service.

However, one must note that Jamshedpur are yet to score a goal in the league while ATK have notched just the one goal.

With both sides hungry to grab goals, it will be an intriguing affair on Friday evening which will see JRD Tata Sports Complex host an Indian Super League match for the first time.
