Match Preview: Warriors vs Hougang United



Its will be another heated contest for the upcoming round 2.5, when the Cheetahs travelled to Choa Chu Kang Stadium to face Warriors FC.

The Cheetahs have rejuvenated ever since the victory against Harimau Muda, which ended their 7-game losing streak, stretching out since May. The appointment of caretaker coach Amin Nasir have seen a different Cheetahs side, who is attacking with more flair and converting their chances better.

The 3-0 demolition of derby rivals Home United sent a warning sign to fellow relegation round candidates, and also the Cheetahs will be fighting for their chances to avoid the penalty fine, which all of the teams are dreading.

Warriors too aren’t looking pretty bad either. Alex Weaver and his men are on a three game winning streak, which came with a 2-1 win against second placed Albirex Niigata. The former Hougang coach will also be looking to hand another defeat against his former side, in which he had already handed the Cheetahs a defeat last month.

Both teams will be looking to fight for their lives, especially with seventh placed Warriors and 11th placed Hougang are only separated by only six points. With only this round playing against teams around them, the next five games will promise exciting entertainment for the fans.
