League newcomers Jamshedpur FC have played it smart in the ISL draft and brought on arguably two of the most dangerous wingers of ISL 2016. Sameehg Doutie was in fine form last season where he scored five goals and gave 10 assists. On the other side, they have Haitian Kervens Belfort who impressed for Kerala Blasters with his pace and creativity last year. He made 20 key passes, the most by any KBFC midfielder or forward in ISL 2016 and his tally of 28 dribbles was the most by any player last season. To top it off, his side never lost a match in which he scored. Hence, Jamshedpur FC will hope he can get off the bench and on the scoresheet and help his side take all three points.
