It was just a one-goal affair as the Mariners take all three points.
ATK Mohun Bagan defeats Jamshedpur FC 1-0 courtesy of a 90th-minute spot-kick by Hugo Boumous to take three points from a tightly-contested encounter at the Salt Lake Stadium on Thursday. A moment of waywardness from Jamshedpur skipper Peter Hartley undid the incredible work that his team had otherwise put in towards ensuring that the home side didn’t get a proper sniff at goal for the whole game. Here are the player ratings for both teams involved in this match.
Jamshedpur FC (By Tarkesh Jha)
Vishal Yadav – 7
The 20-year-old goalkeeper saved all the seven shots that he faced on target to keep a dynamic ATK Mohun Bagan attack at bay until Boumous’s spot-kick got the better of him at the far end of the game eventually.
Laldinliana Renthlei – 5.5
Renthlei made two tackles, clearances and an interception but his passing was erratic with an accuracy of only 57 per cent, which perhaps prevented him from contributing constructively on the front end.
Eli Sabia – 6
The central defender put in five tackles along with a tackle, interception and a block each as he rounded up a commanding performance at the heart of the backline.
Peter Hartley – 5
Hartley did well with his three tackles, two interceptions and a passing accuracy of 80 per cent to hold the ATKMB frontline. However, his rash challenge at Hugo Boumous in the 90th minute led to the home side winning a spot-kick and securing their three points in the final minute of the game.
Ricky Lallawmawma – 6.5
The fullback was thoroughly involved in the proceedings throughout the course of the game, as he put in 10 tackles, four interceptions and two clearances along with a cross as well to round up a convincing performance altogether.
Germanpreet Singh – 5
Germanpreet Singh played it safe and made no notable attacking or defensive contributions during the 27 minutes that he spent on the field, before being taken off for Jitendra Singh.
Rafael Crivellaro – 5.5
The newly-acquired Brazilian created one goal-scoring chance and took one shot off target before he was hauled off in the 57th minute. By the looks of it, Crivellaro might require some time to settle into the setup and get better acquainted with his new teammates.
Jay Thomas – 6.5
The 31-year-old created two goal-scoring chances and put in one cross in addition to a tremendous defensive shift that included five tackles and a couple of interceptions and clearances as well.
Boris Singh – 6
Boris lodged in a workhorse effort in the wings as he sent in four crosses and put in six tackles. He created a solitary goal-scoring chance as well but the coach might expect more concise creativity from him so that the team starts getting some balls into the back of the net as well.
Ritwik Das – 5.5
Ritwik drew a rather listless effort in attack but he was regularly called upon to recover the possession for the visitors, which resulted in the 25-year-old tackling eight times in the 87 minutes he stayed on the field.
Ishan Pandita – 5.5
Ishan got a well-deserved start and he took five shots, two on target, two off target and one of which was blocked in 90 minutes. He consciously made an effort to drop back by a tad bit to get more involved in the build-up process and could arguably put up greater performances if he is given a consistent run of games up front.
Jitendra Singh – 6
With nine tackles and an 85 per cent passing accuracy, it is safe to say that Jitendra clocked a tenacious effort in the middle of the park after being substituted for Germanpreet in the 27th minute.
Daniel Chukwu – 4
Chukwu stayed on the pitch for well over half an hour but could manage to get merely six touches on the ball as it seemed that he was starved of quality service from the midfield.
Seiminlen Doungel – N.A.
Farukh Chowdhury – N.A.

ATK Mohun Bagan (By Uttiyo Sarkar)
Vishal Kaith – 7.5
The ATK Mohun Bagan No.1 continued his impressive form with another admirable showing. Didn’t have too much to do, but Kaith made some brilliant reflex saves to deny Ishan Pandita and Len Doungel. Calm and composed with distributing and collecting the ball as well.
Asish Rai – 6.5
Rai had a pretty good outing and managed to keep Ritwik Kumar Das quiet on his side. He showed defensive sturdiness, making 3 interceptions and 3 tackles as well. However, his attacking work wasn’t that good as his crosses just couldn’t find their mark.
Pritam Kotal – 7.0
Kotal also maintained his good form by being a composed figure at the back. Did a good job in reacting to trouble on multiple occasions, making 2 clearances, 2 interceptions and 2 tackles. Worked well with a makeshift centre-back partner in McHugh.
Carl McHugh – 6.5
The Irishman slotted in as a centre-back in place of the suspended Brendan Hamill. He was caught out of position at times and couldn’t stop Pandita from getting a few shots on goal. But McHugh’s distribution was impressive and he also came up big to make some vital challenges at times.
Subhashish Bose – 6.0
Subhashish didn’t have too much to do because Jamshedpur FC not creating much from his flank. However, the left-back pounced to action whenever needed – making 2 interceptions and a tackle.
Deepak Tangri – 7.0
The energetic midfielder covered a lot of ground for his side and was focused on eliminating a lot of Jamshedpur’s attacks. He made 6 interceptions and 2 tackles to win the ball back many times for his side but was also outmuscled at times by the opposition attackers.
Lenny Rodrigues – 6.0
Lenny was responsible for progressing the ball from the defenders to the attacking players, something which he did relatively well. Pressed the opposition players pretty well and ensured his side controlled most of the possession too.
Liston Colaco – 4.5
Liston had a frustrating evening in the right-wing role. He showed his trickery on a few occasions, but it resulted in nothing. He couldn’t create any chances and his shooting was very basic too. Didn’t look too comfortable or menacing on the right.
Hugo Boumous – 8.5
Boumous was again ATK Mohun Bagan’s most influential attacking player on the pitch. He tormented the Jamshedpur defenders with his clever movement in the final third and delivered some fantastic passes too, creating 6 chances! Despite not getting an assist, he saw his solid work vindicated by getting a late penalty – which he slotted home superbly. Another Man of the Match performance from the ATKMB no.10.
Ashique Kuruniyan – 6.5
Ashique caused Boris Singh major problems with his elasticity and brilliant movement from the left flank. He sped past him multiple times and was quite exciting to watch as well. But Ashique’s final product was a bit lacking, as he failed to find those perfect crosses or set up anything huge for his side.
Dimitri Petratos – 6.0
Petratos helped in the overall attacking play of his side, dropping deep smartly to help send other teammates through on goal. He did test the keeper with two shots, but neither were that threatening. Created a few chances with his crosses, but neither was converted.
Lalrinliana Hnamte – 6.0
Hnamnte helped his side control the possession in the final few minutes of the game and see out the win.
Kiyan Nassiri – 6.5
The young forward came onto the pitch and had a big chance minutes after, which he fluffed from the open range. But Nassiri redeemed himself by earning the penalty that Boumous converted.
Pronay Halder – N/A
The midfielder came on in the last few minutes to help his side seal the win.
