was reassured by Grilled's performance, which he saw as having fully restored the team's self-belief. "Chu Xin Lee
was a big part of today's achievement." he affirmed. "He's been slagged for his mentality in the past, so watching him battle it out from beginning till end was great."
Reserve goalie Dan Seng
, who managed a memorable stop from Peter Mader, felt that he had it in him to hold the fort. "I expect the guys to help me out against Controlar and Cloudz United, assuming I'm picked for those games too."

Cloudz United remained stuck at the bottom with the opposite record, capitulating 0-3 to a newbies are newbies side that never really went all out.
Farmer Bunnies made it five wins out of five in III.11, flattening Toa Payoh visitors Eatgrass 5-0 on a fine day at Carrot Field. Daniel Nguyen
seized upon his opportunity to claim a starting sport with a skilful first-half brace, but Abderahim Bentellis
countered that by scoring with his first touch, after coming on as a sub with fifteen minutes remaining.
and usual suspect Enzo Paolo Panzarino
got the remaining two goals, but Panzarino for one was candid about being much more concerned with Mia San Toa Payoh.
"It's unfortunate that we won't have Kwek Yun Jie
against them, after his red today." Panzarino said. "From what I gather, they're a strong team all around, and we need all the depth we can gather."
Grilled International kept with the theme with a 9-0 victory over in-administration Belgian club Chloé's Eleven, with Micky bin Kadir
finally getting off the mark in style with four goals. Fausto Perono
didn't seem quite on the same wavelength as the rest, but the Italian star signing again found the net nevertheless.
Even Ragib Banović
, never shy to play up his own abilities, had to concede the natural talent of his probable future permanent strike partner. "We may not be the best of pals off the field, but there are few players I'd rather have with the ball inside the enemy box."
