Jamshedpur’s gaffer also spoke about his team’s preparation ahead of their clash against ATK Mohun Bagan.

Things haven’t gone particularly well for Jamshedpur FC this season. The Red Miners were arguably the best team in ISL last season and also claimed the ISL Shield title. But it didn’t take long for things to take a wild turn, as Jamshedpur currently sit at the bottom of the table, just above Northeast.

Though Jamshedpur are out of the title race, the club hasn’t lost their will, and are working hard so that it can see itself in a better position at the end of the season.

With this intention, Aidy’s men have been fairly impressive in the last few games, but face a tough challenge in their next game, as they take on a formidable ATK Mohun Bagan. Before the game, Jamshedpur’s head coach Aidy Boothroyd and star player Ricky Lallawmawma spoke to the media.

This is the crux of the conversation.

Aidy’s plans ahead of Jamshedpur’s last home game

Jamshedpur come up against ATK on the back of an away win against NorthEast united and was fairly impressive against the Highlanders. When asked about what he expects from his players when they lock horns with the Mariners, Aidy Boothroyd replied by saying,

“We’ve enjoyed the days after the win against NorthEast, I thought we were excellent and really happy with the performance of the team. It was a well-deserved 2-0 and could have been more but we quickly put our focus on the next game against ATKMB which was probably one of our best performances. Our season began to turn and we have played really well since then and I think overall we can be happy with the turnaround and I’m very pleased with it.”

Aidy’s opinions on Jamshedpur’s current momentum

Jamshedpur have been increasingly better with their performances in the past few games. In the past five fixtures, the Mariners have two wins and a solitary draw and were also in top-notch form against table toppers Mumbai. When asked about his viewpoint on the improving situation, Aidy Boothroyd had this to say.

“I don’t want the season to end. I’m very pleased with how things are going at the moment. Really pleased with this gentleman next to me (Ricky), I think he’s been outstanding so it’s good he’s here today but we want to play as many games as possible and get back to winning on top of our performances which will come. We want to keep playing well and keep winning.”

Ricky’s preparation for the game

Jamshedpur’s number six has had a decent season so far and was a key cog in Jamshedpur’s brilliant win against the Highlanders in the previous game. This is what Aidy Boothroyd had to say ahead of another difficult fixture against ATK Mohun Bagan.

“ATK Mohun Bagan are a good team and we respect them but we’re probably better than them. We have more confidence and I hope tomorrow we can win against them.”
