SLeague this weekend

Tonight sees Woodlands Wellington take on Young Lions at Jalan Besar knowing a victory would put them ahead of Tampines in 4th spot. Meanwhile Young Lions have struggled this season and currently lie 8th with 12 points from their 11 games. Their recent form sees them collecting just one win in their last 6 outings while their opponents have been looking good away with wins in their last two games on the road.

When I first saw the fixtures for SLeague 2008 I had this weekend down as a must visit. Both uniform clubs are in action against two of the more traditional clubs. First up tomorrow sees Home United take on a Tampines Rovers yet to really get their season going. Last Saturday of course Home lost their unbeaten record when they fell 2-1 at home to Balestier Khalsa but they were victious in the AFC Cup and hope to put their blip behind them.

SAF's blip could be causing concern for coach Richard Bok. Their victory away to Kitchee in the AFC Cup midweek was their first win in four games and the Warriors will be hoping to make up some ground on Super Reds. Sunday they travel to Geylang United who are on a roll having won their last three games. But the Eagles, along with Tampines, are way behind the high flying Super Reds, 15 and 14 points respectively, and both sides will be looking for surprise wins to allow them to make up some ground.

I'll be at both games and am really looking forward to them. With the two top scorers in the league as well as Geylang having the second worst defence it should rain goals. Shouldn't it?

1. Super Reds 12 10 1 1 24-10 31
2. SAF 11 8 2 1 32-11 26
3. Home United 11 8 2 1 32-13 26
4. Tampines 11 5 2 4 21-16 17
5. Geylang 11 5 1 5 15-21 16
