Jamshedpur: Odisha FC notched up their fifth win on a trot in all competitions as they defeated Jamshedpur FC by 1-0 at the JRD Tata Sports Complex in the Indian Super League (ISL) here on Friday night.

Odisha FC head coach Sergio Lobera replaced Diego Mauricio with Roy Krishna in the starting XI. The Fijian met the corner kick by Ahmed Jahouh with utmost precision and slotted it into the net from close range to hand Odisha FC the eventual winner of the game in the 56th minute.

For Jamshedpur, their challenges in front of the game further extended, as consistent efforts by the creative duo of Rei Tachikawa and Jeremy Manzorro, along with the imposing presence of Daniel Chima Chukwu could not help them find the elusive goal despite attempting 20 shots and directing three of them on target in the game.
