Kerala Blasters vs Jamshedpur FC: Build-up
Kerala Blasters host Jamshedpur FC in the ISL 2022-23 with an eye on breaking into the top three. The Blasters have been on a run of point-scoring since losing to Mumbai at the end of October, winning six matches and drawing one. Jamshedpur meanwhile, have not won a match since beating NorthEast, losing seven and drawing one of their last eight.
Kerala Blasters are fourth in the table with 22 points, one point behind ATK Mohun Bagan with a game in hand. A victory will not only lift Blasters to the third place but also give a six-point cushion over FC Goa, who sit outside the top four.

Ending a sequence of defeats with a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Goa resuscitated Jamshedpur FC’s campaign. They are miles away from the playoffs race, posting a solitary win so far and amassing five points from 11 matches. With new signings Dylan Fox and Rafael Crivellaro joining, Jamshedpur have pressed the reset button and should be targeting a run of victories to get as close to the top six as possible.
For Kerala Blasters, Ivan Kaliuzhnyi is suspended for the fixture. Bijoy Varghese is missing from the bench for the last couple of matches; he incurred an injury in November. On the other hand, no injury concerns for Jamshedpur FC as of now. Dylan Fox has joined the club, replacing Peter Hartley, and will be ready to feature against Kerala Blasters.
