Player of the Match:
Greg Stewart put up a 10/10 performance. He was a delight to watch. His involvement in all the 4 goals helped Jamshedpur steamroll past Odisha. Stewart managed to grab his first hat-trick of the season and now has 4 goals and 4 assists in 6 matches this season. The Scottish forward who was bought in from Rangers has lived up to his reputation and has taken no time to settle in the league. He will be the one to watch for whenever Jamshedpur come out to play.
