Geylang continued their poor pre-season form with a third successive loss to S-League rivals Hougang. Hougang were from the start of the game, controlling the ball posession thanks in part to Geylangs lack of pressing.
On the 13th minute, Hougang were rewarded when a diagonal cross from the left side was knocked in on the half volley past the keepers lefthand side. The goal was a testament of the how Hougang´s widemen, led by Jordan Webb, were winning the one-on-one battles down both flanks.
The second half didn´t see much improvement from a Geylang side struggling for goals this pre-season, who only managed a single shot on target in the whole 90 minutes.
If pre-season is anything to go by, then Geylang will struggle this season. As for Hougang, they continue to try and play their dynamic brand of football led by Jordan Webb. If he performs as well as he did in the 2011 season, and pre-season suggests so, then Hougang United may struggle to keep him past this season. - (SOURCE)
