ATK travelled 300km from Kolkata to Jamshedpur to face Jamshedpur FC in the 15th matchweek of 2019-20 Indian Super League. Fijian player Roy Krishna was named for ATK’s starting eleven one more time and he ruled the match by putting an end at his goalless streak.
Krishna was on fire and he opened the scoreboard in the second minute of the game after a Jamshedpur’s defensive mistake to give the 1-0 lead to ATK and that was the half time score. Things got easier for ATK when Jamshedpur’s Jitendra Singh was sent off in the beginning of the second half so Krishna and his teammates had more space to play. It helped them to find the goal for two more times as Krishna delievered an assist to Edu Garcia score in the 59th minute while Krishna scored by himself in the 75th minute.
