Kerala Blasters FC faced Jamshedpur FC in the 11th match of the ISL 2023-24 season at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi on Sunday, October 1. The Blasters won their second ISL game by defeating Jamshedpur FC 1-0 after a dominant display. The scoresheet is unable to show the brilliance of the Kerala side but they were the side who came to clinch the three points. After a goalless first half, the visitors started the second half on a front foot and created back-to-back opportunities. Jamshedpur couldn't find the back of the net. After the substitutions, Adrian Luna scored the only goal of the evening with Diamantakos' assist.

Meanwhile, Jamshedpur FC came on the back of a good defensive performance away from home. They secured a point after a brave defending display against East Bengal FC. They also were brilliant defensively today against the home side but to win a game, a team need to score goals. But for now, they haven't opened their copy yet.

Kerala Blasters assistant coach Frank Dauwen "Even tomorrow, when it rains, it's not going to be a problem. Normally, before the game, we need water for the pitch so I think it's no problem."

"The Blasters began their season with a 2-1 victory over Bengaluru and though Jamshedpur managed only a goalless draw against East Bengal, Blasters' Adrian Luna feels it could be a difficult match."

Jamshedpur FC head coach Scott Cooper "When you play against any team that's got fan support like the Blasters have, you have to match the work rate as an opponent…and play with your eyes wide open."

"The rain does affect the game. And it probably is a disadvantage to the home team. It's a leveller."
