Not in the best of moods after having their bubble burst, Grilled went in hard on Division Three side Li'l Buggers in a rough contest parading five cards and two casualties. Grilled went back to basics with a high Hobson corner that Kau Siu-Cheung
guided into goal with his face, and soon after Hobson fed his scoring addiction by making the most of Machado's inventiveness on the left.
Grilled then stroked the ball about with little urgency, an attitude that riled some Buggers players, who pressed in on Grilled's players. Gao Seng-kar
didn't appreciate having someone constantly breathing down his neck, and prodded James Williams in his chest and told him exactly that. A silly move, since the referee was close by and saw it. Buggers' forward Soon-chun harassed Xing Hua
for the ball, and was booked too after he had the Grilled player on the ground.
All that hustle had an effect eventually, and a play out to Zang Yi-It had him staring at three Buggers men waiting in the middle. Hasmawi Ismail dashed in onto the centered ball and flipped it over the stunned defence into the far corner. Card collector Tan Ong
was given another yellow for his hoard for restraining Soon-chun.
Indian forward and captain for the day Svarpati Attimarad
burst in from his withdraw position to restore the two-goal advantage with an arrow-straight flyer, but Grilled were left with ten men as Gao Seng-kar
was marginally late going in on Chadha and was sent off for a second bookable offence.
Li'l Buggers started taking the game over, and Grilled suffered another blow after Citragu Chadha hammered into Peter Magunsson and knocked the Swede flat out. Chen Chiew-Yen
avenged his fallen compatriot by taking the ball in the Buggers' box and running around Hansen in goal for a tap-in. Balencia showed good reflexes to palm away a magnificent strike from Chada late on, and in the scrap for the loose ball Buggers' striker Shan Junheng was cut on his foot.
