Cidoncha 35'
45'+3' Lanzarote

Manuel Lanzarote's corner for ATK rolls into the Jamshedpur FC goal (Image: ISL)
Jamshedpur FC have to settle for a draw again after an impressive first half was botched at the very end by Subhasish Roy Chowdhury. ATK settle for a point after picking up three against Delhi Dynamos earlier in the week.
Sergio Cidoncha's opener from the free-kick is cancelled out by Manuel Lanzarote's bending corner, which was tucked in by JFC goalkeeper Subhasish.
Tim Cahill comes close to scoring his first ISL goal in the second half but he only manages a weak header in front of Arindam Bhattarcharya.
The match ends 1-1 and neither team can complain about the result, given the way they played. 
That's it from the JRD Tata Sports Centre, stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more updates.
90+6' ATK's Ricky shields Jerry from reaching the ball with his body and he takes a touch before Arindam Bhattacharya grabs onto it. That could be the last of the attack but no wait....Bikey gives the ball away and JFC threaten again.
The ATK defenders have to do overtime before breathing easy. PEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!
90+4' A defensive change for ATK by Steve Coppell, who is more than happy to take a draw.
OFF - Manuel Lanzarote (12)
ON - Andre Bikey (23)
90+2' Jamshedpur Threaten!!
Ricky makes a late challenge on Cido and appeals for a penalty but JFC are instead awarded a corner after a clearance.
The corner is only half-cleared and Mario Arques rises tall to get a header in from the second cross, but it flies over the bar.
90+1' Five minutes added on and ATK make a late change.
OFF - Balwant Singh (15)
ON - Hitesh Sharma (18)
88' The long balls into the box are keeping JFC goalkeeper Subhasish busy but there's no attacker there to glance them in. Jamshedpur FC, who are not stranger to scoring late goals in the ISL, are not able to breach into the attacking third this time.
85' Referee not interested in awarding a free-kick to ATK despite Tiri clearing nudging Everton Santos from behind. The Brazilian protests but referee R Venkatesh waves the play on.
82' This referee is shy of pulling out the cards but he finally flashes the yellow, which the commentators claim is the first one of the game, to ATK captain Manuel Lanzarote. Everton Santos was earlier booked in the first half.
79' ATK push forward with fresh vigour but Maimouni is stopped because of the flag. Are we set for a late goal in Jamshedpur? 
The Last stretch of the game is on and both the teams look equally eager to get the winner.
74' Soosairaj, unable to keep up the intensity from the first half, is next off.
OFF - Michael Soosairaj (23)
ON - Sumeet Passi (12)
74' Cesar Ferrando makes a double change. First off the field for JFC is Tim Cahill.
OFF - Tim Cahill (17)
ON - Carlos Calvo (19)
68' Referee warns ATK's Gerson Vieira one last time for a foul on Tim Cahill. Jamshedpur FC push on and win a free-kick just outside the box because of a hand-ball by Pronay Halder. And JFC have a free-kick on the opposite side but the set-piece variation doesn't quite work out.
66' ATK make their change. Young Komal comes off for fresh legs on the wings.
OFF - Komal Thatal (11)
ON - Jayesh Rane (16)
63' Cahill gets close!!!
Michael Soosairaj to Mario Arqués, who immediately spots the run by the Australian and floats it right into the eight-yard box. The crowd watches the cross drop and Cahill gets there but he seems to have mistimed his jump and only manages a half-decent effort in front of the goal.
The 38-year-old must be cursing himself for not putting that behind the net.
61' Back-to-back free-kicks for ATK as Jamshedpur FC show their aggression on the players instead of the ball. The delivery is great from the half-line but John Johnson and Gerson Vieira, who had pushed up for the set-pieces, couldn't get close enough to manage a header.
56' ATK's John Johnson escapes a booking after pushing himself on Tim Cahill, not even bothering to go for the ball. The two of them reconcile and play is back on. And Johnson should consider himself lucky for not being shown a yellow there. 
53' Komal Thatal gets a shot in!
Everton Santos drops down on the left and floats the ball into the centre of the box towards Balwant Singh, who is unable to get a header in. The ball falls to Komal Thatal, who has to ward off a couple of defenders before managing a not-so-intense shot.
50' Jerry misses out playing the first ball to right-back Robin Gurung but he moves up ahead with intensity and drives the ball in towards Tim Cahill, but the ATK defenders brush it aside.
46' No change coming into the second-half by either side. The change, however, is in their football as Jamshedpur FC and ATK push up for the lead here. Michael Soosairaj tries to curl the ball in from the left to find Tim Cahill at the centre, but the ball is out for a goal kick.
That was the last bit of the action before half-time.
Two goalkeeping errors keep the scores level at 1-1 at the JRD Tata Sports Complex. Both teams had better chances to get the goals but Arindam Bhattacharya's poor judgement on the bounce of the ball right in front of him gave JFC the lead. Sergio Cidoncha struck the free-kick leading to the goal.
Subhasish then deflected the ball into his own goal while clearing a corner by Manuel Lanzarote, who claims the goal.
Both the managers will have a word with their goalkeepers during the break and ask them to look more lively and get their focus back on the game for the next 45 minutes. Don't go anywhere, an interesting second half is coming up.
So the scores are now equal at half-time thanks to a schoolboy error by Subhasish Roy Chowdhury
Manuel Lanzarote floats in a corner that's swinging in dangerously and Subhasish had it easily covered - oh you think he had it covered. He leaps high and gets a touch to the ball and pushes it upwards - but it floats to the right post and creeps inside the goal.
Arindam Bhattacharya's attempted save was poor, but this one by Subhasish beats it all.
The corner itself was conceded after Yumnam Raju had to clear the danger from Lanzarote's cross after winning the ball from Pratik Chowdhary.
Added time - 3 minutes
44' Play restricted to ATK's half as Jamshedpur FC play a game of high pressure, push up to win the ball from the ATK central defenders, who drag the ball out of bound with a long ball.
40' Were ATK let down because of the unexpected bounce or should Arindam have shown better reflexes?
The visitors are anyway pushing further up the field now, hoping to find an equaliser before half-time. They are trying to build a move from the defence before an unnecessary long-ball by John Johnson goes out for a goal-kick.
Free-kick on target by Sergio Cidoncha.
He fires the ball to the side of the wall and it's curling inwards but still heading towards an outstretched ATK goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharya.
What should have been easily blocked is instead drifted into the goal as the ball bounces just ahead of Arindam, before taking a touch on its way in. 
Cidoncha is more than happy to get a goal that way.
Arindam needs to do better. Jamshedpur are ahead now.
31' Jamshedpur FC break on the counter and Michael Soorairaj plays the ball to Tim Cahill, who goes down to a rash challenge by Everton Santos.
Yellow to Everton - Santos and not Cahill's former club. 
The resulting free-kick by Mario Arques is over the bar.
28' Both teams are unable to hold on to the possession right now. Two long balls see them exchange the hold of the ball before a foul gifts possession to ATK altogether.
24' Maimouni is unable to clear the danger and concedes a corner unnecessarily under pressure from Jerry of JFC. Meanwhile, John Johnson just cannot let go of Tiri and the referee steps in to separate them. The corner is wasted anyway.
21' Komal Thatal of ATK shows what he's got, gushing down the right wing and then moving inwards for an assist while getting rid of his marker.
But he takes a touch too heavy and still manages to square it back in, but the referee signals a goal-kick.
17' ATK have a corner and Balwant threatens from the far left post, deflecting the ball nicely to the centre for another ATK player. But JFC cover up quickly. and induce a touch out of Balwant for a goal-kick.
15' WOW! Brilliant football by Jamshedpur FC.
Michael Soosairaj takes his time, twisting and turning on the left to get the cross in. He moves left, right, left and just when you think he's going to turn again, he drops one nicely into the centre of the box.
Sergio Cidoncha steps back to meet the cross and pounds the ball towards the goal but Arindam comes up with a block to deny Jamshedpur FC.
12' NOT BAD, not bad at all.
Jamshedpur FC's Mario Arqués finds space on the right and before a rushing ATK defender comes at him, he fires a low shot to the far post, which just goes wide. Arindam Bhattacharya had it covered anyway.
JFC pushing up now.
11' ATK win a free-kick down the left after Manuel Lanzarote is fouled. They end up committing a foul themselves as John Johnson shoves a JFC defender to get to Maimouni's take.
8' Early stoppage of play as Michael Soosairaj is hit on the gut by a powerful strike by Maimouni. He receives treatment and gets up in no time.
5' ATK's Manuel Lanzarote presents the early danger for Jamshedpur FC defenders with a great run, but Tiri and goalkeeper Subhasish Roy Chowdhury are there to see off the threat.
0' PEEEEEEEEEEEP! Days after making headlines as the 'Youngest-ever Goalscorer' of the ISL at the age of 16, Gourav Mukhi of Jamshedpur FC doesn't even find himself in the squad for the game against ATK. It's not known whether he's injured but the team management is coy on the matter. 
Anyway, Game on now, let's worry about the youngest goalscorer later.
The players are making their way out of the tunnel and into the packed JRD Tata Sports Complex. Before the game, we'll first have the National Anthem.
Spanish flavour
JFC's three foreign signings have already settled well in the ISL.
Sergio Cidoncha provided an assist against Mumbai City FC and scored the last-gasp equaliser against Bengaluru FC.
Pablo Morgado, who played only 18 minutes against MCFC, has a goal to his credit.
Mario Arques has been ever-influential in the midfield for Cesar Ferrando's side.
Last season, Jamshedpur FC disappointed at home, picking up only 11 points out of a possible 27. This also contributed to them finishing fifth last season and missing out on a spot in the semis by a whisker. 
This match against ATK is their first home game of the 2018-19 ISL season and they would want nothing but a win on Sunday.
This season, ATK have come up with the most number of interceptions - 35 - in the ISL. ATK also have the most number of blocks - 48. 
This doesn't necessarily mean that they are defensively solid as they have leaked four goals in three matches. It means that ATK are unable to hold possession and are playing catch-up to the opposition - something that Coppell will have to work on.
So it turns out that this game will only be telecast on Star Sports 3 on TV. No HD telecast for this game because of the various other events (read: cricket) happening today.
So there you have it.
JFC coach Cesar Ferrando has left Gourav Mukhi out of his line-up. Here's probably why he did that.
Bikash Jairu also has been pushed to the bench and Robin Gurung and Pratik Chowdhary are in the XI.
As for ATK, Kalu Uche is missing from the line-up. No clarity as to why.
ATK Playing XI:
Arindam Bhattacharya (GK)
John Johnson, Gerson Vieira, Aiborlang Khongjee, Ricky Lallawmawma
Pronay Halder, El Maimouni Noussair, Manuel Lanzarote, Komal Thatal, Everton Santos

We've had a great week of ISL action after the international break and it continues as ATK, who beat Delhi Dynamos 2-1 recently, take on Jamshedpur FC. This is Aravind Suchindran and I shall be with you until the end of this match, providing you all the updates from on and off the field. Team Line-ups to be out sooooooooonnnn.. Stay tuned.
Tim Cahill, Jamshedpur FC's main man, will hope to get off the mark for his club. He has 56 Premier League goals (all for Everton) and almost 55 per cent of them - 31 - have come from headers. Cahill has faced a side coached by Coppell before - Reading FC in 2007/08 season of the Premier League.
Jamshedpur FC Probable XI:
Subhasish Roy Chowdhury
Bikash Jairu, Tiri, Raju Gaikwad, Yumnam Raju
Memo, Mario Arques, Sergio Cidoncha, M Soosairaj, Jerry Mawihmingthanga
Tim Cahill

ATK Probable XI:
Arindam Bhattacharya
Ricky Lallawmawma, John Johnson, Gerson Vieira, Aiborlang Khongjee
Everton Santos, Pronay Halder
Balwant Singh, Manuel Lanzarote, Komal Thatal
Kalu Uche
ATK's Balwant Singh has a great scoring record in away matches. Out of the eight goals in his ISL career, Balwant has scored seven on the road. He has take more shots in his 18 away matches - 39 - than home matches (37 shots in 21 appearances).
Four of his seven away goals have come inside the box, giving the JFC defenders something to really think about.
Midfield maestro.
Jamshedpur FC's foreign recruit Mario Arques has been impressive this season.
Arques has created plenty of chances for his team in JFC's two games so far in the tournament. The Spaniard will look to continue that form against ATK tonight.
Arques scored on debut against Mumbai City FC and provided two assists in the game against Bengaluru FC. He will be the man to watch out for.
Cesar Ferrando, the Jamshedpur FC coach, says that Coppell's familiarity with the JFC could be an advantage for ATK.
“ATK are a good a team. Their team has improved from the first match and they have a good coach. The ATK game, for me, is the most important match of the season. We will try our best. We need to play like a team and I am sure we can win tomorrow,” Ferrando said.  “Steve (Coppell) did a good job when he was here.  He knows a lot of the players. I hope in front of him, we play well,” he added.
Steve Coppell, the former Jamshedpur FC coach, says it's great to be back in the Steel City.
“It's great to be back. I am very proud of what we did last year, even though we did not make the play-offs. It was a great achievement for a new franchise and I look forward to the game tomorrow,” Coppell said.
Jamshedpur FC vs ATK preview
Steve Coppell could receive a lukewarm response when he returns to Jamshedpur, this time as the ATK coach, on Sunday.
Coppell coached Jamshedpur FC to a fifth-place finish in JFC's debut ISL season last year and then shifted royalties to the Kolkata outfit ATK.
Coppell will see familiar faces in the audience but they won't be kind to him when ATK look for their second win the ISL.
Jamshedpur FC, on the other hand, will look to hit the ground running at the JRD Tata Sports Complex after their famous 2-2 draw with Bengaluru FC at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium before the international break.
With a win and a draw under their belt, Cesar Ferrando-coached JFC have been impressive so far. After an away 2-0 win against Mumbai City FC, JFC rallied twice to hold BFC 2-2 in their first two games.
They will come up against ATK, who got their first win of the season when they beat Delhi Dynamos 2-1 in the Capital. Before this win, ATK were bottom of the table after going down 0-2 to Kerala Blasters and 0-1 to NorthEast United FC.
The hosts will miss the services of full-back Dhanachandra Singh due to an injury. Subrata Paul, who received a three-match ban for a brawl during the Super Cup last season, will also be out for this game.
ATK have more than a couple of players on their injury list. All three are defenders and big ones at that in Prabir Das, Arnab Mondal and Andre Bikey. Another defender, Sena Ralte, who was sent off against NorthEast United, will return to the squad.
There is no dearth of power up front for ATK with the likes of Kalu Uche and Manuel Lanzarote leading the forward line for the Kolkata outfit.
JFC will hope their big Australian marquee player Tim Cahill makes a mark at home against a tricky team like ATK.
A power battle with ATK's John Johnson will be interesting to watch when the two teams lock horns later this evening.
It will also be interesting to see if Balwant Singh, who scored with a brilliant curler against Delhi Dynamos, will carry his form into this game for ATK.
When and where to watch and telecast details:
