Coyle’s big worry is reportedly the unavailability of Greg Stewart who picked up his fourth yellow card in the dying moments of Jamshedpur’s win over NorthEast United. Stewart has been involved in 54.5% of his team’s goals this season and he will be greatly missed. The Scottish playmaker has been in fine form lately, scoring five goals and providing two assists in the last four matches.

Jamshedpur can only withdraw if they lose their remaining three games and Mumbai City FC lose to Kerala Blasters FC and win their last game of the season against Hyderabad. Both teams will then finish with 34 points and Mumbai will go head-to-head.

“We are only thinking about facing Hyderabad FC. Like I said before, we really have to focus on one game at a time because if you look too far you get hit in the face in the sport of football. So we’re going up against fantastic opponents, an exceptional team with great individual talent and a terrific coach,” Coyle said on the eve of the game.

Coyle also informed that while Jitendra is out for the game, a call for Boris Singh will be taken at the last minute.

“Greg is also suspended and there are also a few others who will be missing. Jordan Murray could play longer minutes which is good for us, but he’s not 100 per cent yet, even though he’s is improving day by day and that others are having trouble.

As for Hyderabad, Ogbeche will once again be looking to continue his stellar show and lead the line for Manolo Marquez’s side. The last time the two teams met, the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
