The last time the 2 teams sized up, the Protectors delivered a 5-0 thrashing to the Cheetahs, and this time round the Hougang lads are looking for pay back.
Home United now claim second spot when they recently dispatched Gombak United to a 4-1 beating, and are now trailing 1 point behind league leaders Tampines Rovers who have one game in hand. Etoile FC are not too far behind in third.
The protectors now boost a combined 16 goals between their 2 top scorers - Winger Qiu Li and Striker Federic Mendy and would most probably rely on their twin terrors to deliver the goods.
Hougang United travel to the Bishan Stadium with a similar scoreline against a Woodlands outfit a fortnight ago. Diego Olivieira and Jordan Webb bagging 2 goals each in the first and second half respectively. The Cheetahs are now 7th with 19 points and trailing Gombak United, who are 6th with 21 points.
Hougang United have now been able to even out their goal differences after 3 back-to-back wins with a goal tally of 10 goals and 2 goals against. Let's hope the defence continues to prevail. Excellent job Cheetahs for orchestrating an Hougang United revival.
See you folks at the Bishan stadium this coming Monday!
