Tigers hold out against Protectors

Title Favourite Home United saw Balestier Khalsa hold them to a 1-1 draw at the Toa Poyah Stadium.

The Protectors took the lead after 20 minutes as new Korean signing Kim Dae Eui centre the ball into the box that Sufian finished wonderfully.

It was more than the Protectors deserved as they had totally dominated the game up to that point but from that point on, it was a disappointment as they appeared to have lost their way.

Especially after the Tigers score as Korean Lim Young Woo rose highest to head in a freekick from K. Vikraman.

As blogger switch play explained, the Protectors make a lot tactic changes in the game as it progress shifting from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2 and back again and one wonder if it was too much changes for it own good.

That was why coach Paul Lee later told the media he will take responsibility for the disappointing draw.
