The hosts sit in the top half of the table, but have only a mere two wins from eight matches, which is less than half of the teams placed above them.
On the other hand, Chennaiyin FC need to pick as many points as possible to move up the standings. They are placed ninth with just four points to show for their efforts from seven matches.
Ferrando will want a reaction from his players after their defeat in Pune and Gregory would be keen to build on their win in Pune.
Jamshedpur suffered their first defeat in opening eight matches against Pune earlier this week. One of the major issues for Jamshedpur this season has been their wastefulness in front of goal. Despite playing some good football and creating a lot of chances, their goal conversion rate has let the Miners down time and again. The Miners have had their troubles in defence too, leaking in soft goals. The team has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven matches.
Jamshedpur have scored 15 goals from 37 shots on target. They have the passing accuracy of 73.26 per cent and have kept one clean sheet.
Defending champions Chennaiyin FC had a terrible start to the season and could only pick up a single point from their first six outings. They eventually won against Pune in a 4-2 victory.Head coach John Gregory will be eager to hold onto the momentum and string together a series of victories to stay in the race for a playoff spot. Chennai have suffered due to the lack of goals from forwards. Out of the nine goals scored by Chennaiyin this season, only one has come from a striker. Chennaiyin's all-time top goal scorer Jeje Lalpekhlua is yet to find the net this season while Palestinian striker Carlos Salom has been mediocre at best, netting just a single goal in six matches. In fact, of the six individual scorers who have registered their names on the score sheet for Chennaiyin this season, three are defenders.
Chennai have scored nine goals from 32 shots on target. They have the passing accuracy of 73.91 per cent and kept one cleansheet.
Jamshedpur and Chennai have faced each other twice with Chennai winning once and the other ending in draw.
