Harimau target return to winning ways

Harimau Muda will be looking to bounce back from suffering their first defeat on the season when they take on Woodlands Wellington at the Yishun Stadium on Sunday.

Another brilliant display from the winger.

The Malaysian outfit have been one of the best performers in the 2012 Great Eastern-YEO's S.League season, but their unbeaten run finally came to an end last Sunday when they lost 1-0 to Home United.

And while Woodlands are not expected to pose as tough a test as the Protectors did last weekend, Harimau coach Ong Kim Swee has still urged his side to be cautious.

"I think there are a few more teams that we're going to face that will pose a tough test to us, not just Home United," Ong said.

"You can't afford to take any team lightly in this league - you'll get murdered for that."

Woodlands themselves will be flying high after a very impressive performance in last Thursday's 2-2 draw with SAFFC, where South Korean striker Moon Soon-ho grabbed a brace.

Elsewhere on Sunday, defending champions Tampines Rovers will be looking to keep up their fine form against Gombak United at the Clementi Stadium.

Following a poor start, the Stags reignited their campaign two weeks ago with a 2-0 win over Home, before trashing Eastern derby rivals Geylang United 5-1 last Saturday.

In addition, Steven Tan's men also received a boost on the continental front after beating Terengganu 2-0 in the AFC Cup on Tuesday.

However, things will not be easy on Sunday, especially coming up against a Gombak side high on confidence after recording their first home win of the season last week - a 2-1 victory over Hougang United.

Friday's action saw Albirex Niigata claim a dramatic 2-1 victory over Hougang thanks to Norihiro Kawakami's 94th-minute winner, while DPMM FC defeated Tanjong Pagar United 3-2 at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium.

On Thursday, high-flying Balestier Khalsa piled more misery on struggling SAFFC by beating them 1-0, courtesy of substitute Andrew Tan's 69th-minute strike, while goals from Michael King and Jozek Kaplan helped Geylang United beat Courts Young Lions 2-0.
