It has been a great season for the Men of Steel under the tutelage of Owen Coyle. While they had a few bumps in their ways they braved most of it with some solid performances. While Greg Stewart has been the driving force for the team, Indian players like Jitendra Singh, Ishan Pandita, Ricky Lallawmawma and others have also played their roles. Peter Hartley along with Eli Sabia have been a very solid duo in defence.

Although they recently lost Nerjis Valskis to Chennaiyin FC, Coyle has brought in former SC East Bengal forward Daniel Chima Chukwu. The big Nigerian forward is known for physical play but failed to impress his bosses at SC East Bengal and therefore was released. Now it will be interesting to see how he performs in Jamshedpur FC colours.
