Jamshedpur FC made it two wins in two games after they crushed Hyderabad FC 3-1 on Tuesday at the JRD Sports Complex.

Farukh Chaudhary (34'), Aniket Jadhav (52'), and Sergio Castel (75') were on target for the hosts, whereas Marcelinho (45+1') was the lone scorer for Hyderabad.

The hosts created the first real goal-scoring opportunity of the first half through Mobashir Rahman. The 21-year-old provided a sublime aerial through-ball for Farukh inside the box. The forward found himself too close to an advancing Kamaljit Singh, who did well to emerge successful in a one-on-one.

The Men of Steel were clearly superior in the first half but they had nothing to show for it until Farukh handed them the lead in the 34th minute. Castel did well to win the ball in the attacking third and set Piti up at the edge of the box. The Spaniard dribbled past two Hyderabad bodies to fire a shot at Kamaljit. The Hyderabad custodian spilt his save and a lurking Farukh tapped the ball in from close-range.

Just as it looked like Hyderabad would go empty-handed into the break, star forward Marcelinho scored to restore parity. 

The second half started with a couple of half-chances for both sides. Jamshedpur took the initiative to step the tempo up a notch by reclaiming their lead through Jadhav. The teenager converted a cut-back delivered by Farukh from the left flank to cap up a memorable night.

This goal did not trigger any reaction from the visitors, who were struggling to break into the final third.

Castel added another to all but confirm the three points. 

Jamshedpur have looked like a force to reckon with, following a well-deserved win. The Men of Steel rightfully occupy the top spot in the Indian Super League table.
