Harimau look to build on DPMM triumph

Harimau Muda will be looking to build from last week's impressive win over DPMM FC when they take on SAFFC in the Great Eastern-YEO's S.League on Saturday.

The Malaysian outfit became only the second team to beat DPMM at the Hassanal Bolkian National Stadium last week when goals from returning wing duo Wan Zack Haikal and Wan Zaharulnizam helped them to a 2-1 victory in Brunei.

Both Wan Zack and Zaharulnizam were playing in Harimau colours for the first time since completing a trial with Japanese side FC Ryuku and played starring roles as Ong Kim Swee's side leapfrogged Balestier Khalsa into fifth place.

On Saturday, they will be looking to make it two wins in a row when they take on a wounded SAFFC side, who fell to a shock 1-0 home loss to Tanjong Pagar United last Friday.

The result left the Warriors, perenially regarded as title contenders, in seventh place, and already there are rumours that coach Richard Bok is under severe pressure after a forgettable campaign.

Elsewhere on Saturday, bottom side Woodlands Wellington face a tough test with a trip to Hougang United, who are currently on a five-game unbeaten run in the league that has included a comprehensive 3-0 win over Balestier, as well as creditable 1-1 draws against Home United and Tampines Rovers.

Defending champions Tampines moved top of the table on Thursday after recording a 2-0 win over Home, while Takaya Kawanabe missed a first-half penalty as Tanjong Pagar were held to a 0-0 draw by Geylang United at the Bedok Stadium.

On Friday, DPMM went a second home game without victory after being held to a 1-1 draw by Gombak United at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium, while Balestier Khalsa cruised to a 2-0 win over Courts Young Lions thanks to goals from Kim Min-ho and Patrick Paranjody.
