Steve Coppell's side have won their last two home games, against Kerala Blasters and Delhi Dynamos, but they return to their base after three away games where they collected six out of a possible nine points.
Jamshedpur's organised brand of football has seen a surprising and unlikely rise into the playoff spots but they cannot take it easy because their challengers Mumbai City FC and FC Goa have both played fewer games.
"We hope that we continue the good form at home. But now, each and every game becomes vital. Three points are more significant now.
"Almost every game these last few weeks have been almost must-win for us. It would be great to win tomorrow, but if we don't, it's not the end of our ambitions this season," Coppell said.
As for NorthEast United, who have failed to win in their last three games, their head coach Avram Grant conceded that results have not gone their way but the performances have surely seen an upsurge since he took over.
"When you are a footballer you always have to push yourself no matter the situation and that is what we will do tomorrow as well. In the last game (0-1 loss to FC Pune City), the team fought well and you can see the players playing well.
"There is frustration in what happened in the games before this but we have shown a good mentality to win games, irrespective of the results," said the coach who had a few injury concerns to deal with.
Coppell said that every team will have niggles at this point in the season, but was hoping his side would be 100 per cent fit for the game.
