Northeast United FC’s disappointing run continued, as they let go an early advantage and lost 2-3 against Jamshedpur FC in matchday 51 of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) 2021-22 season on Thursday at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa. Deshorn Brown scored twice in the match but it was not enough and Jamshedpur FC, who were clearly the dominant side, throughout the match, earned three valuable points in the dramatic clash. Jordan Murray, Boris Singh Thangjam and Ishan Pandita scored for the Red Miners.

The Highlanders had a near-perfect start as their star player Deshorn Brown continued his good form from the last game and broke the deadlock in the 4th minute to give NEUFC an early advantage. Only a few minutes later, Jamshedpur had a chance to equalize but Jordan Murray’s wide header ensured they missed an easy chance. However, he made up for it just before halftime as a free-kick from Greg Stewart met with a brilliant header from Murray to send the ball into the back of the net.

The Red Miners were clearly the better side today and created several opportunities. Boris Singh Thangjam scored their second goal in the 56th minute to give Jamshedpur FC the lead. They failed to convert several opportunities and a late goal from Deshorn Brown in stoppage time almost ended the game in a draw. But some late heroics by the Hero of the Match Ishan Pandita, who scored the winner in the last moments of stoppage time helped Jamshedpur FC earn three valuable points and move to third in the points table.

Jamshedpur FC will next play SC East Bengal on Tuesday and NEUFC, who is currently at tenth in the table, will have more than a week to regroup as they face FC Goa on January 14.
