Of No Import
There was a slight tang of disappointment after Changi Genius secured an unassailable four-point lead entering the last round, but Grilled head coach Djan Bacelar
was determined not to let it get his men down.
"We have shown title-winning form in the second half of this season." he insisted. "A win next week, and it'll be hard to argue that we wouldn't have been worthy champions instead."
This may be easier said than done, with goalscorers Moey Xin Seng
and Yuta Nakakita
suspended, though it should see the welcome return of Künzler and Batâr. Moreover, the pressure will be completely off, with the Birds having confirmed second place whatever happens.
-Blitz- and newbies won at home to round it off, with the former now assured of another season in III.15, having garnered 22 points to fifth-placed newbies' 17. Romanian forward George-Cosmin Tudorache will assuredly be a part of that, that is if -Blitz-'s fans have anything to say about it, from their reaction to his hat-trick against Singa Songo.
Over in III.11, the Bunnies will most likely have to endure a qualifier, that is unless Kim Tae Hee FC or Soon Soon collapse on the last day. Their recovery did continue against Todd FC as they romped to a 4-0 away win, with Tham Leng Teck
opening the scoring with a random shot.
Given that their opponents next week will be the hapless Complementary Slackness, Sikong Darong
is expecting a big win for the supporters. "They've let in 115 goals in thirteen games, so aiming for double-digits is only reasonable, I'd say."
Grilled International for their part found no joy against Czech club Samotišky Saints despite an excellent start, with Soo Kiong Yau
converting his own penalty in the 28th. Veteran Radim Pexa would lead a Saints rally in the second half after G.I. spurned a bunch of chances to extend their lead, unfortunately, and they wound up losing 1-3.
With G.I. now in danger of finishing seventh, Tajit bin Mohd
preferred to direct attention to their stadium expansion plans, as well as their growing warchest.
"It could have gone better today, but we're in this for the long game."
