Vasco: Jamshedpur FC and Hyderabad FC settled for a point each after a goalless draw in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the TilakMaidan Stadium here, on Sunday.
While Hyderabad ended up drawing their third game on the trot, Jamshedpur nabbed their first point of the calendar year, after a hat-trick of losses.
New signings FarukhChoudhary and SeiminlenDoungel were among the four changes made by Jamshedpur while Roland Alberg was handed his first start as Hyderabad rang in two changes.
The opening half was an intriguing, open-ended contest with both sides hitting the post but failing to find the net. Hyderabad fashioned better chances but Jamshedpur keeper TP Rehenesh produced two fine saves to keep the scoreline 0-0 heading into the break.
The second half turned out to be a scrappy affair. Neither sides were able to carve out clear-cut chances with both sides defending resolutely.
Hyderabad had a chance to score through a set-piece but Santana failed to keep his shot on target. Hitesh Sharma's free-kick was cleared by Eze and it fell to Santana, who sliced his volley wide of the post.
Jamshedpur registered their first shot on target in the 87th minute, with NerijusValskis missing a half chance. Farukh won the ball and delivered a cross in the box for Valskis whose header was aimed straight at Kattimani. IANS
