ISL 2021-22: Winless Bengaluru wary of Jamshedpur threat

Bengaluru FC (BFC) faces a tough challenge against a strong Jamshedpur FC in an Indian Super League (ISL 2021-22) outing at Bambolim on Monday.

BFC, winless in six games, takes on Jamshedpur FC, which is fresh from a 4-0 victory over Odisha FC in its previous outing. BFC, however, can take some positives from a 3-3 draw earned against ATK Mohun Bagan a few days ago.

Suresh Wangjam returns to the BFC squad after the midfielder served his one-match ban for picking up a red card against FC Goa. Naorem Singh will miss out due to suspension (four yellows).

The Jamshedpur FC frontline poses a serious threat. Scotlandโ€™s Greg Stewart is in form, having scored the clubโ€™s first-ever hat-trick in the victory over Odisha FC.

โ€œThey have four very good attacking players, and Greg Stewart is one of them. Weโ€™ve played two pre-season friendlies against them, and have an idea of the kind of threat they possess,โ€ BFC head coach Marco Pezzaiuoli said.


Jamshedpur FC has won three of its last five games, and will look to build on its good form. “Greg Stewart is a wonderful player. That’s why I got him to the football club. I told everybody in the pre-season about his qualities and it’s nice when I am vindicated,โ€ Jamshedpur head coach Owen Coyle said.
