The ball on the bounce fell to Bidyananda, who slotted home with a right-footed shot.

Jamshedpur had a chance in the 33rd minute to double their lead.

Striker Sergio Castel followed a long through ball from Aitor Monroy and entered the box.

After the change of ends, Mumbai kept on building pressure and it paid dividends as they equalized in the 60th minute via Chermiti's header.

Chermiti, who was in the centre, headed the ball, which first hit the underside of the crossbar and then went into the net.
