Battle of the big cats


After a stunning start to the season that saw them surge to the top of the Great Eastern-Yeo's S.League table, Hougang United seemed to have 
lost steam. 

Amin Nasir's charges have lost three of their last four games and were only the second side to fall to the Courts Young Lions this year.

They will look to prevent a full-on slide when they face Balestier Khalsa tonight. 

The Balestier Tigers were on a poor run as well. They were winless in six games before beating Harimau Muda B 2-0 in their last fixture.  

Balestier's effervescent Park Kang Jin looks likely to start on the bench tonight, which will give Amin's Cheetahs a boost. 

Firman Hanif and Fazli Jaffar 
are suspended for Hougang, 
but Durica Zuparic and Nurhilmi Jasni are able replacements 
for them.
