Hougang will be looking forward this quarter final tie off, when they face the Bulls again this Saturday, which promises to be an exciting affair.
Goals from Jordan Webb and a rare goal from Ante Barac had the Cheetahs one foot into the semi-finals, where they will meet the winning team of the uniformed derby of Home United and the Singapore Armed Forces.
However, Hougang needed to step up the performance to protect the slender lead, especially in the first half, where they had struggled to put through passes. Another main problem is the Bulls towering attackers, which they had conceded through an early goal from Julien Durand.
The last thing Hougang would need is to have a missing player through suspension. Jordan Webb’s yellow card in the first leg, means he will miss the decisive home leg. With fellow winger Nurhilmi Jasni out through injury, and missing Ignatius Ang and Farhan Rahmat, due to international commitments, Hougang will have a selection headache of not having enough players in their positions. However, Hougang could depend on utilityman Basit Hamid, who has a quick feet and an eye to pass, however, he have yet to register a single goal this season.
Following a three-game winning streak, the Cheetahs will be looking to pounce on victory in this tie and continue the legacy last season, in which they reached the semi-finals of the competition, only to lose to Albirex last season.
Come on Hougang! NO Surrender! (SOURCE)
