After fluffing a handful of chances to take the lead, Jamshedpur FC finally buried a penalty and secured a crucial 1-0 win over ATK in Sunday's ISL encounter.

Trindade Gonsalves successful spot-kick sees Jamshedpur overtake Mumbai City FC in the points table.

Steve Coppell's men now have 19 points and move to fifth place, the same FC Goa who have played two games less.

Here are the major talking points from tonight's game.

#1 Jamshedpur's players unleash from distance early on

Steve Coppell's men came into this match on the back of a tough loss against FC Pune City but that didn't deter them one bit tonight. The visitors employed an interesting tactic early on in the game.

Wellington Priori, Trindade and Azuka all attempted long-range efforts in the hope of catching ATK keeper, Debjit by surprise. Between them, they shared 5 shots from distance inside the first 15 minutes, thereby signalling their intent from the get-go.

ATK found it extremely difficult to hold on to the ball while Jamshedpur continued to pepper the goal from distance. It was an unusual approach from a side who are usually very rigid in their approach.
