Rams To The Slaughter

Former Blackburn Rovers coach Steve Kean saw his DPMM charges romp to an 8-1 victory over Woodlands Wellington last night in Brunei but he wasn't surprised.

'The boys (have) looked fresh and sharp (in training over the last dew days). If not for the fantastic goalkeeping, it could have been double figures,' Kean said after the match as quoted on the SLeague site.

Goals from Roberto Alviz, Adi Said (2), Roy O'Donovan (2), Azwan Rahman, Boris Raspudic and the prolific Rodrigo Antonio Tosi did the damage while Soon Ho Moon's goal on 58 minutes may have earned him a small bonus in his wage packet.

Tosi and O'Donovan have 33 goals between them with the Brazilian the joint top scorer in the league on 19.

The win does wonders for DPMM's goal difference of course, 55-21, and puts them four points clear of champions Tampines but leaves the Rams in 10th place on 19 points.

It is the third time this season the hapless Woodlands have been on the wrong side of a caning...earlier in the season I saw them cave in at Albirex Niigata, losing 7-1 while they also lost at home to Home United 6-1 last month in the League Cup.

It is fortunate for them the development teams, Young Lions and Harimau Muda, are in an even worse situation; in their last eight games, they have won just once, at home to Warriors, and lost six.

Their next game comes at home to Harimau Muda...
