Two thirds of the way through the season and the SLeague three horse race shows no sign of lagging. Last night Home United beat the Super Reds 2-1 at Bishan Stadium to leapfrong SAF FC back to the top spot.
Tonight sees Tampines travel to Woodlands hoping for three points of their own to keep hanging on. At the same time SAF travel to struggling Sengkang hoping for a win of their own.
With games on an almost daily basis the SLeague is dishing up some quality entertainment and the 3 pace setters show no sign of slacking as they enter the final third of the season. Picking a winner at the moment is for the brave as each side has its own qualities that will stand them in good stead.
Singapore Armed Forces, led by Duric who has scored a phenomenal 28 goals this season, score goals for fun, averaging nearly 3 a game. Home United are a resiliant bunch as their display against Geylang recently showed when they came from behind with 2 late goals in injury time. Tampines have been there and done that and of course they have the Noh Alam Shah factor.
It's an exciting season for football in Singapore and the climax looks to be a real nail biter. It's a shame more fans don't get out and attend some games.
