A Right Struggle
Grilled head coach Djan Bacelar
had words of encouragement for his young midfield following the draw, while also admitting that it did the club no favours in their drive for survival. "It was a gamble, and as it happens, it was a wash. Still, this is one of the few times when a point at home almost feels decent."
Young star Moey Xin Seng
didn't spare his words, as he pointed out exactly what he thought went wrong today. "I thought that we were going strong at the outset, but there wasn't enough support coming in from out wide."
In any case, the result sees Grilled stranded together with their opponents on five points, and firmly in relegation territory. Only AkA FC lie beneath as they were taken apart at home by The EV, who however did not manage to catch up to co-leaders Claseek and CoCoTeaTree Islanders, as they too came off with away wins.
Over in III.11, the Farmer Bunnies crept ahead of BENG UTD into third place, with a relatively low-intensity 3-0 against MFANC, that was decided by the 26th minute. Enzo Paolo Panzarino
expressed his concerns at his fellows not trying to run up the score, though.
"I'm speaking as a striker here, of course, but why not improve our goal difference, while we're at it? We switched right off after the third goal!"
The Buns remain some distance behind KingofNoobs United and Sporting VDF, who both won handily on the road. They will have a chance of making up ground on the latter next Sunday, but will have to be wary of ex-national youth forward Cheung Li Shun, who notched a hat-trick against New East Coast in the meantime.
