Subrata Paul (6/10) - The 'Spiderman' had a poor night between the sticks as he was beaten twice by headers from Kalu Uche. He did well in the second half to keep out the Delhi attacks.

Yumnam Raju (7.5/10) - The left-back, who has been preferred ahead of Shouvik Ghosh, had a decent outing as he kept the threat of Pritam Kotal in check for the most part of the match. He scored Jamshedpur's second goal with a superb strike into the top corner beating Arnab Das Sharma in the Delhi goal.

Andrey Bikey (7/10) - The Jamshedpur FC defender had a troubling time in central defence as Delhi ran rampant on the attack. The central defenders were caught twice with the quick strikes from Uche.

Tiri (7.5/10) - The tall Spanish centre-back had a mixed outing on the pitch today as the home side conceded two goals in similar fashion, but the skipper Tiri managed to pull one back with a headed goal from a corner.

Souvik Chakrabarti (5.5/10) - The right-back was kept on his toes for the entire match as the duo of Lallianzuala Chhangte and Nandhakumar Sekar ran havoc on the left flank for Delhi. He was caught on many occasions by the overlapping runs and through-balls and had a poor outing today.

Wellington Priori (7.5/10) - The lanky Brazilian was active in the midfield as he used his physicality to command the ball in the central midfield alongside Memo and even made good runs on both the flanks. He got the assist for the match-winning goal when he put Trindade Goncalves through in the box to score past Sharma.

Memo (6.5/10) - The defensive midfielder for the home side was a strong presence in the midfield as he played the pivot role between the Jamshedpur defence and midfield. He combined well with Priori and forced Delhi to attack from the wings.

Bikash Jairu (6.5/10) - The left-winger for the home side used his speed and crossing ability well to put in good crosses for Izu Azuka in the Delhi box. He took some shots at the Delhi goal but was unable to trouble the Delhi keeper.

Jerry Mawhminghthanga (7.5/10) - The young winger was a constant threat on the flanks with his movement behind the Delhi defence. He was on setpiece duty throughout the match and provided the assist for the first Jamshedpur FC goal.

Ashim Biswas (6.5/10) - Former India international Ashim Biswas had a quiet night after scoring in the last match but he did well enough to support the Jamshedpur attackers with his passing. He was substituted in the second half when Trindade Goncalves replaced him.

Izu Azuka (6.5/10) - The Nigerian forward was the target man for the home side in the Delhi box and did well to keep the Delhi defence occupied. He made good runs through the defence and was good in the air during setpieces.

Substitutes:

Anas Edathodika (5/10) - The India centre-back, who has recently recovered from an injury got some playing time tonight as he replaced Andrey Bikey in the second half.

Trindade Goncalves (6.5/10) - The Brazilian midfielder replaced Ashim Biswas in the second half as Jamshedpur FC pushed on for the winner. He came true on the manager's trust as he scored the match-winner in the 86th minute.
