ATK Mohun Bagan made it three 1-0 wins in a row after a late Hugo Boumous penalty gave them the three points over 10-man Jamshedpur FC at the Salt Lake Stadium in the Indian Super League (ISL). 

Jamshedpur's captain Peter Hartley was sent off in the incident that led to the penalty being awarded to ATK Mohun Bagan, for a tackle on substitute Kiyan Nassiri. 

Brendan Hamill was suspended for the hosts as Deepak Tangri came into the midfield, and Carl McHugh dropped into defence. Rafael Crivellaro came into the starting eleven to make his debut in midfield for the visitors alongside Germanpreet Singh, who returned from his injury. TP Rehenesh missed the game and Vishal Yadav took his place between the sticks.

Both sides fired blanks in a close first half as ATK Mohun Bahan managed only two shots on target after attempting eight. At the other end, Jamshedpur FC attempted five shots but only had one on target.

In the fifth minute, Liston Colaco cut in from the left flank and danced past three Jamshedpur FC players before getting his shot away from the edge of the box. The low shot went straight down the keeper's throat resulting in a comfortable save. Aidy Boothroyd's side were dealt another injury blow when Germanpreet was taken off because of a niggle in the 27th minute.

In the last minute of the first half, there were half-hearted appeals for a handball inside the Jamshedpur box after Pritam Kotal's shot came off Laldinliana Renthlei's arm before it was cleared to safety but the referee waved the appeals away.

In the final quarter of the second half, Boumous played a clever give-and-go with Dimitri Petratos near the edge of the box before squeezing it past the keeper and across the goal. But unfortunately for the Mariners, there was no attacker around to tap it in.

The opening goal of the match came right at the death in the most dramatic manner. Ashique Kuruniyan was dribbling down the left flank when Hartley came from behind and elbowed Nassiri inside the box. The penalty was awarded as Boumous stepped up to take it and slotted it into the bottom left corner to hand Jamshedpur FC their sixth defeat in a row.
