Caretaker manager Gerry Peyton suffered a 4-1 defeat in his first game in charge as Odisha lost to ATK Mohun Bagan on Saturday.
Peyton replaced Stuart Baxter, who was sacked for post-match comments in the aftermath of their 1-0 loss to Jamshedpur last week.
Two goals from ATK's Manvir Singh and a Roy Krishna double inflicted a ninth defeat of the season on Odisha. Cole Alexander got a consolation.
The Kalinga Warriors have won just once all season courtesy of a 4-2 victory over Kerala Blasters at the start of January.
Prior to the latest back-to-back defeats, Odisha had held Bengaluru and Hyderabad to 1-1 draws.
Odisha Team News
Odisha are boosted by the return of centre-back Steven Taylor from a one-game ban.
But they lose centre-back Gaurav Bora and forward Manuel Onwu to suspension.
Wingers Baoringdao Bodo and Daniel Lalhlimpuia are also nursing knocks and have been ruled out.
Kerala Blasters Form
Kerala Blasters have all but waved goodbye to their ISL finals hopes after suffering back-to-back losses in the last week.
Kibu Vicuna's side led 2-0 against ATK Mohun Bagan only to concede three times in the last 31 minutes in a 3-2 defeat.
A 2-1 defeat at the hands of leaders Mumbai City last week has seen Kerala slip to second from bottom.
Again they led after Vincente Gomez opened the scoring. But second-half goals from Bipin Singh and an Adam Le Fondre penalty condemned the Blasters to another defeat.
Kerala Blasters Team News
Facundo Pereyra is the only major absentee for Kerala Blasters as the Argentine playmaker continues to be sidelined.
Striker Subha Ghosh is still unavailable due to an ongoing investigation into his transfer from ATK Mohun Bagan.
Head to Head
Odisha gained their only win of the season against Kerala Blasters and now lead the head to head 5-4. There have also been six draws.
Having ended last season with a 4-4 draw, it was goals galore again as Odisha ran out 4-2 winners over Kerala last month.
Kerala led through a Jordan Murray goal, but conceded four without reply before Gary Hooper got a consolation.
A Jeakson Singh own goal and goals from Steven Taylor and a Diego Mauricio double earned Odisha the points.
It's a bottom of the table clash between the Indian Super League's leakiest two defences. These two sides have shipped 52 goals between them in 31 combined games and have been regular deliverers of both teams to score.
Concentrate on the goals markets, with BTTS the best bet for the game and over 3.5 a value option.
