S-League has returned for the 2nd half of the season, as the first live game will feature the Mighty Cheetahs of Hougang vs Tanjong Pagar United
Hougang will start this game in 11th place, after having their bright starts early this season. Six defeats in a row from March till May handed Hougang a freefall down the table. However, they had met the Jaguars twice this season, and both undefeated. This is the game that they will be looking forward to banish the ghost of the last six league games, which none earned the Cheetahs a single point..
Hougang met the Jaguars earlier in February, with Jordan Webb and Takaya Kawanabe scoring for both the Cheetahs and the Jaguar respectively. Hougang then beat the Jaguars on penalties in the Singapore Cup last month.
However, the Cheetahs need to be wary the Jaguars’ new signing forward, in the form of Haitien Gilbert Bayonne. The forward was bought in to shore things up in the Jag’s attack and also to provide main striker Takaya Kawanabe a decent striker that they were in need of for the last two seasons.
Hougang will be playing this game without former centreback Khayrulhayat Jumat, who have since left the Cheetahs for Geylang United. We will wish him all the best in his future endeavours…
Come on Hougang! NO Surrender! (SOURCE)
