S-league Preview

Last Preview - Got no right & 2 wrong

Young Lions vs Sengkang Punggol
The Cubs are a weaken side but will it matter as we cannot class Sengkang Punggol as a brillant side that will take advanatge of this. After all, the Hougang side is also known to be goal-shy themselves and without goals, a team cannot win. But the Cubs, who is 1 of the few team to average more than a goal a game, is unlikely to offer much themselves as their topscorer is out until mid-term next season. That is why the safe option is go for a draw. 1-1 draw.

SAFFC vs Albirex Niigata (S)
The Warriors had hit a purple patch before their 'enforced' long rest (they have not played in a month). Will it affect them? I hope not as they are a much better side than the White Swans and should have no problem winning this encounter if they play to their potential. This is what I expect will happen as the Warriors start to tighten their grip on 4th place. 3-0 to SAFFC

Woodlands Wellington vs Gombak United
I have little faith in the Bulls as they could not even defeat a weaken Beijing side and it tell me they cannot be trusted until Agu Casmir return and they rid themselves of the Koreans. Their Koreans are just not good enough and the Bulls are suffering as a result of that. Talk of bad pitches cannot hide the fact their performances are more disappointing than exciting. 1-1 draw

SAFFC vs Young Lions
It should be the Warriors again; even if it is their second match in 3 days as the Young Lions are in no better shape. There is a marathon of matches for the Cubs and their squad will be tested to the limit. It is 5 matches in the past 2 weeks (counting the U23 friendly in Vietnam) already as they have to finish before November because of the Asian Games and it is a difficult situation for the Cubs to handle at the best of time, let alone now when their top scorer is gone and there are holes in defence and midfield to fill. 3-0 to SAFFC

Home United vs Balestier Khalsa
Let make it a short one. There can only be 1 winner and it is Home United. If they cannot win, their season is over so no pressure (like real). 2-1 to Home United
