Stags' AFC Cup Ambitions End

A disappointing evening for SLeague champions Tampines Rovers as they bowed out of the AFC Cup at the Jalan Besar Stadium, drawing 0-0 with Hong Kong side Kitchee.With one game remaining, away to Vietnamese side Song Lam Nghe An, Tampines have just five points from their five group games and a single win; admittedly a surprising one away to Malaysian side Terengganu.

Tampines have struggled to score during the cup, netting just five goals while Kitchee, who feature former Muang Thong United and Bradford City defender Zesh Rehman, had conceded just two.

In the final group game, the two qualified sides, Kitchee and Terangganu, will fight it out in Hong Kong to decide who will finish top while Tampines will fly to Vietnam knowing that defeat there would see them finish bottom of the group.

All such  a contrast to Home United who defeated Citizen, also in Hong Kong, the previous night to secure their place in the next round along with Chonburi.
