S.League leaders DPMM denied by Geylang once again

DPMM FC were unable to claim maximum points against Geylang International in the S.League for the second time this season after both sides played out a 0-0 draw on Saturday.

The Bruneian outfit entered the game at the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium looking to end a three-game losing streak, following crucial defeats to title rivals Warriors FC, Home United and Tampines Rovers.

And although they were coming up against a Geylang side who have been steadily improving under Jorg Steinebrunner – having lost just three of their last 13 matches – Steve Kean’s charges were still expected to claim all three points at home.

However, they failed to find a way past the resilient Eagles and ultimately had to settle for a share of the spoils.

It was the second time this season the Bruneians failed to take maximum points against Geylang, after both sides played out a 1-1 draw back in March in what had been Steinebrunner’s second game in charge after replacing V. Kanan at the helm.

DPMM FC: Wardun Yussof, Subhi Abdilah, Abdul Aziz Tamit, Boris Raspudic, Sairol Sahari, Rosmin Kamis, Hendra Azam (Awangku Fakharrazi 80’), Azwan Ali, Roberto Alviz, Roy O’Donovan, Rodrigo Tosi.

Geylang International: Siddiq Durimi, Khairulnizam Jumahat (Shah Hirul 70’), Kento Fukuda, Yuki Ichikawa, Joaquin Lopez, Fabian Kwok, Franco Chivilo, Ridhuan Muhammad, Aliff Shafaein (Hafiz Nor 65’), Mustaqim Manzur (Jalal 83’), Leonel Felice.
