Both sides made serious attempts in the first half with a Wellington Priori corner threatening to give Jamshedpur an early lead. At the other end, Bipin Singh found Stewart with a brilliant cross, but the Scot headed straight at the keeper.

But the deadlock was broken with smart play from Stewart, whose low cross across the face of the goal was buried by Chhangte.

Jamshedpur didn't have to wait longer as a Priori long throw from the right was flicked on by Sawyer before Chukwu rose highest to head the ball into the top-right corner.

Mumbai pressed Jamshedpur higher up the pitch in the second half but the visitors held on to a point.

Mumbai's next match is against Kerala Blasters in Kochi on October 28 while Jamshedpur will host the winless NorthEast United on October 30.
