Luck unassisted. Owen Coyle led Jamshedpur FC could have bagged a goal more against Hyderabad FC at the Tilak Maidan in Indian Super League match No.14 on Wednesday. The team went forlorn when the linesman dismissed the goal in the 71st minute as a handball, despite the declaration of it as a goal by the referee, which drove the head coach furious against the linesman.
However, Jamshedpur FC could manage a drew against Hyderabad FC with Stephen Eze finding the equaliser goal. But at least were they satisfied. Moreover, the players explicitly expressed it by rounding off the referee while Coyle further raged against the linesman. Coyle accused that the linesman simply invented a handball. " We have been robbed, My question really is 'how can he make something like that up?' because it doesn't even look like it was a handball." averred the head coach. Despite the complaint, Coyle also admitted that his team did not have the quality in the first half but reiterated about the spirit his players had which revived the team in the second half.
Aridane Santana scored for Hyderabad in the 50th minute, while Stephen Eze snatched the victory in the 85th minute for Hyderabad FC grabbing three more points.
HFC remain third in the points table unbeaten whereas JFC leveled up in the eight place above Kerala Blasters.
