Hougang United vs Courts Young Lions
Courting the Young Lions will be a no rosy affair, for the visitors have since recorded their first win against Geylang United at the Jalan Besar Stadium in front of Pele and Cantona, impressing a crowd of almost 3,000 spectators.
As for Hougang United, having succumbed to 3 straight defeats, Aide and his boys will be looking forward to a change of fate and putting the Young Lions to the test.
Supporters like myself want to see that same swift counter attacking displayed against Etoile FC at the Queenstown stadium last Monday.
The Cheetahs however, will be without centreback Ratna Saffian who is still serving his 2nd match suspension. (Correction: has served only 01 match suspension, so he'll be available for this match. Thanks Anonymous!)
Nevertheless, the backline is still holding out under the charge of vice captain Shariff Abdul Samat and Japanese centerback Fumiya Kobayashi.
Some players to take note for the coming game are Jordan Webb and Fazli Jaffar; whose entertaining and mazey runs along the flanks caused some problems for the Etoile back line.
Both have been providing much effective backup for sidelined midfielders Diallo and Diego Gama.
It's the battle of the big cats at the Hougang Stadium! Go Cheetahs Go!
