Piti received the ball on the left and skipped past a defender before sending a powerful strike towards the goal. Kamaljit’s save fell right into the path of an onrushing Farukh, who turned the ball home.Piti, the architect in midfield, nearly added a second goal soon when Castel found him in space on the edge of the box. The Spanish midfielder’s right-footed effort ended up a few inches wide of the target.Against the run of play, Hyderabad struck an equaliser at the stroke of half-time.advertisementMarcelinho collected Rohit Kumar’s pass, cut in from the right, dropped his shoulder to ease past Keegan Pereira and neatly slotted into the net, beating Subrata Paul at his near post.An injury to Sahil Panwar following a collision with Sergio Castel dampened the visitors’ spirits and Jamshedpur were back on the front foot.Castel swung a cross into the centre from the left for substitute Aniket Jadhav, who sent a diving header over the bar with just the keeper to beat.Jadhav made amends for the miss with an excellent finish after collecting Farukh’s cross in the 62nd minute to put the hosts back into the lead.With Jamshedpur overpowering their opponents in midfield, Hyderabad struggled to get back into the game as the second half wore on.Castel soon added Jamshedpur’s third with an excellent piece of centre-forward play. The Spaniard brought down Memo’s long ball, twisted and turned to beat a couple of defenders and fired the ball into the net.Farukh and Pereira also had their efforts kept out before the final whistle as Jamshedpur sealed full points.Also See:last_img read more
