Like the players too, those on the sidelines must also have their preparation for the new season. One of the challenges taking pictures at places like OTH is the unpredictable shades that cover the field during a game. Therefore, playing around with the settings is part of the acclimatising too.

The AIA Singapore Premier League match between Balestier Khalsa Football Club and Tampines Rovers Football Club started on time on a greasy field due to the heavy rain prior the game.

Stags' Taufik Suparno opened the account in 56th minute before Amer Hakeem levelled for the Tigers in 67th minute but the hosts' joy was temporary when Boris Kopitovic placed Stags back on the pole position in 69th minute and walked away with their first three points of this season from dim-lighted Toa Payoh Stadium .

Balestier Khalsa notched their first three points of their AIA Singapore Premier League campaign when they crushed Tanjong Pagar United F.C. 4-0 on damp Toa Payoh surface.

Faizal Raffi opened the trigger on the 24th minute to give the hosts the lead, Kristijan Krajcek netted a brace with Sime Zuzul added his name on the scoresheet in the 55th minute.

While the Jaguars' woeful start of the season continued with this fourth consecutive defeat.

Before the match, a minute of silence as a mark of respect to the passing on of former international M Kumar.

  • SGPL - Lion City Sailors 2-2 Albirex Niigata (S) 070421
"What is the issue, referee?"

This was a "do-or-die" battle for the perceived title favourites - Lion City Sailors to prove they are contenders and not pretenders.

Unfortunately, facing the understrength defending champions Albirex Niigata (S), the heavy spending Sailors had to come from a two-goal deficit to salvage a draw and unfamiliar spot in the standings that is soon to be familiar.

This was one of the matches being played after the relevant authorities allowed limited number of fans back to the AIA Singapore Premier League matches.

Japanese striker Tomoyuki Doi added his season to 10 after his solitary strike in the second half saw the Cheetahs beat Balestier Khalsa 1-0 at Toa Payoh Stadium.

  • SGPL - Tampines Rovers 3-2 Geylang International 160421
Moresche has been the bright spark for the Eagles

Thought it was a pity that a draw was a fair result given how Geylang came back strongly after twice in the game.

But it was a costly defensive blunder that saw Taufik Suparno came in unmarked to score the decider.

But credit to Geylang's 'keeper Zainol Gulam who kept the score low for put up a credible show after the heavy defeat to LCS days ago.

Tampines' Boris Kopitovic watches as YL's Dylan Pereira saved a shot

The only thing came to my mind after settled down all my thoughts on this outcome is - are these Young Lions boys capable to play at a higher level after they "graduated" from the setup?
