Disappointment was the overriding emotion: Jamshedpur FC's Aidy Boothroyd

The head coach of Jamshedpur FC, Aidy Boothroyd, was disappointed as his team did not get the result that they wanted against Bengaluru FC in the latest fixture of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday. A goal from Danish Farooq Bhat in the opening minutes of the game was enough to see the Blues to bring home all the three points against Jamshedpur FC.

Boothroyd who has managed to guide Jamshedpur FC to just one in their first ten matches was frustrated with the team being unable to make the most of their moments.

"Disappointed because we did not get the result that we wanted. We shot ourselves in the first four minutes and gave ourselves a problem,” he said in the post-match interview to the club's media team. 

"We had some chances but unfortunately, we weren't clinical in front of goal today," he added.

JFC had two big chances to equalise through Ishan Pandita in the second half but he squandered them as Bengaluru FC were able to hold on for the victory.

Boothroyd was pleased to keep the scoring down but was left with a feeling that his team could have done more to put pressure on the hosts.

“They started fast and we needed to slow them down to stop them and upset them." stated Boothroyd.

"Their form hasn't been good and we have been playing well. I was pleased with the last couple of games, but tonight disappointment is the overriding emotion," he added. 

The Englishman is now looking forward to getting Rafael Crivellaro upto full speed so that he could use his qualities in attack.

"Keeping Rafael as fit as we can (is important). (But) we need to do it without any injuries as he hasn't played in a long time. There was bit of a balance in the team that needed to be done which I did it. I was also pleased with the younger players. I thought Vishal was excellent," said Boothroyd.

Saturday's result meant Bengaluru FC made some progress towards the pursuit of the top six and playoffs by keeping a clean sheet, while Jamshedpur FC suffered their seventh defeat of the season, sitting with just four points and tenth in the points table.
