Young Lions Run Ends
You never know what you're oing to get with Gombak United. Before last night's game with Geylang United they had won six and drawn six of their opening 15 games. Well, now they have lost seven so figure them to win their next game. Geylang defeated them 1-0 thanks to Vasile Ghindau's second half penaty. Both teams had players red carded in the game at Bedok Stadium.
In last night's other SLeague game Young Lions scored twice but it wasn't enough to stave off defeat against Albirex Niigata because they hadn't read the script. They only went and scored four! It ended Young Lions best run of the season that had seen them win their last two games of the season.
How did the fans respond to two games on one night? Well, SLeaue official attendances bear as much resemblance to reality as a day with Jack Warner but they do at least serve as indicators of trends.
Albirex attracted 1,338 while Geylang brought in 970. People who actually bought tickets make up a small proportion of that number.
