Match Day: Sunday, 20th May 2012, 7.45 PM
Venue: Queenstown Stadium
Ticket Price: Free ENTRY for all match attendees

The Cheetahs will be looking to kickstart their Singapore Cup foray this season, starting with a trip to Queenstown Stadium where they take on the improving Tanjong Pagar United this Sunday.

Much will be anticipated in this campaign, when the Cheetahs surprised the lot last season, eventually finishing fourth in this competition. The Hougang faithfuls will be looking forward for the Cheetahs to put on the impressive run again this season, after dismal results in league this time round.

The Jaguars will be no pushovers either. They are currently on a three-match unbeaten run, stunning Home United and Balestier Khalsa on the way. The Jags are currently on 8th position, above Hougang, who are languishing on 11th.

The Cheetahs will be cautious against this Tanjong Pagar side, who are currently striking all across corners with their impressive work rate. They will be looking to pay more attention to their chief striker Takaya Kawanabe. The Japanese forward has currently five goals in his name this season, and he will be looking to lead the line again, alongside his youthful team mates.

The Cheetahs have met the Jags once this season, in the opening fixture this season. Cheetah’s leading scorer, Jordan Webb, opened the scoring early, however, a defensive lapse in the Cheetah’s defence, allow Kawanabe to pounce on the mistake and equalized for the Jags. The Cheetahs will be looking to save their free-falling season, however, the Jags will be looking on their home advantage and will not make this fixture easy.

Come on Hougang! NO Surrender! (SOURCE)
