Roter Apply Rotan
The recovery win saw the Birds climb back to third in the league standings, with SingaStyle extending their perfect run with a close-fought 3-2 home win over Arrogancae - that however saw both Luxembourg international Fernando Tomás Soares and French forward Daniel Salaun sent off, before a very improbable comeback. "Scoring twice from nine versus eleven?" Hilal Bakhtiar
mused. "Can't remember the last time that happened."
Bakhtiar was satisfied enough with his own team's showing today, although he hinted that some individual performances remained well under par. "I don't want to name names, they know who they are." the head coach warned. "Not to disrespect the visitors, but it should have been more, cautious play notwithstanding."
Ang Mohs in flip flops would set up a top-two clash for next Sunday by defeating Ramseille Volliard FC 4-1 away, with some help from it all going Mark Schüler's way towards the end; that hasn't stopped the 26 year-old German striker from going on the transfer list for over S$15 million, however, with wages reportedly a bone of contention. As for Moeinsingapore, they were unable to build on last week's boost, as they crashed 0-2 to a Club Dinosauria finally earning their first league victory of the season.
Farmer Bunnies kept up the pace with a third league win on the trot, the latest a 2-0 away result against Leeds Celts. Vitaliy Efendiev
and Nguyễn Văn Chương
decided the match on the counter, by the 30th minute. They remain behind III.14 transferees H0u9ang R0ver5 on goal difference, however, after the Ang Mo Kio club hammered the in-administration Rain Walkers 3-0. One or both of these streaks will come to an end next weekend, however, as the twain meet.
was for one not much intimidated by this early potential championship-swinging clash. "So many teams are right in the mix - Kungfu 11, Dragon Devil's and headache are all on six points now. There's no point in putting too much weight on the table at this stage."
Things would go much more badly for Grilled International, who could not help but be reminded of how last season went, as they were dismantled 0-4 by Ghana hosts roter stern ghana. Their central defender Nicholas Manu had perhaps the game of his life with a first-half hat-trick, and what made it more painful was than Zaini bin Hj Kaling
had passed up on a sitter, in the second minute.
In the end, Kwame Kwarteng would get a fourth in a disjointed second half, with Ragib Banović
missing a consolation as he put an injury time header from a corner inches wide. It went without saying that the team would not have been saved from supporter outrage had that gone in, and Didi Reidenbach
wouldn't even try to give excuses.
"We get back together, and try again. That's all I can say."
