Fazrul Recovers After Sabah Setback

It h as certainly been an eventful 2015 so far for Fazrul Nawz. The Singapore international started the year looking forward to playing for Sabah in the Malaysia Premier League but unfortunately things did not work out for him there.

Anyway he returned to Singapore and was picked up by reigning SLeague champions Warriors as they set about building a squad to challenge in the AFC Cup as well defend their title.

While it has not been the best of campaigns for the Warriors, they are second but a poor defence has hampered their efforts to pull away from the pack, Fazrul has put the Malaysian episode behind him and continues to do what he does best; score goals.

His six goals so far this  season makes him the league's third highest scorer as well as the top scoring local striker.

While he has tasted success with LionsXII in the Malaysian Super League (2013) and Singapore (ASEAN Cup 2007, 2012) Fazrul has struggled to make a name for himself in the way other Singaporeans have ike Noh Alam Shah, Indra Sahdan and Khairul Amri but his consitency surely deserves some recognition?

And let us not forget how important he was for Gombak United, remember them, when they had surely built a team ready to mount a serious title bid before the government got involved and deported their foreign strikers.

Later today first meets when second when leaders Albirex Niigata host Warriors. When they met earlier in the season the White Swans thrashed Warriors 6-0 at Woodlands Stadium. Warriors will be hoping to overturn that humiliation and looking to Fazrul to score the goals that send them back to the top of the table.

1 - Albirex Niigata 11 7 2 2 15-4 23
2 - Warriors 10 7 0 3 18-18 21
