|Yangon Utd's fans out in full force to electrify Bishan|
Like many of his fellow countrymen who made their boisterous presence felt in last year's Okkthar United's RHB Singapore Cup run, Tun and few thousands of his compatriots were at the usually mundane Bishan setting when the two sides squared again after a goalless draw last week in Yangon, capital of Myanmar.

"It's because of our love for football and our country that I can't express our feelings (in words) when we sing our national anthem together during the match." explained Tun who came to know the match from a Myanmar local football website - SoccerMyanmar.com which features local and international football news.
Despite the vocal presence of their adoring fans, Yangon United failed to hold on to the one-goal advantage they took in the first half through Mladen Ristici in the 37th minute and allowed their hosts to stage another dramatic comeback like they did against Citizen AA weeks ago.

"The crowds were fantastic today, but I think some of my boys were playing to the crowds, instead to my instructions." said Yangon United coach Eric Williams in the post-match assessment when he touched on a bit of the support shown this evening.
"They (crowds) were motivating the players at first, but the players wanted to show to the fans how good they are individually and as I mentioned it's about teamwork, which I am trying to work on it and the players should take a bit more responsibility on that." added a disappointed coach Williams.
