Fish Out of Water

-Sengkang Punggol FC Fans' Perspective-

Two Winnable Games

Circa February 2010.
After losing a hotly contest League Cup semi final duel against Etoile, Sengkang Punggol played under the sweltering heat of a Sunday 5pm kickoff and went on to vanquish Gombak United in the third place playoff with a 2-1 final score.
It was the second time in that early part of the season that the Dolphins came on top with the similar scoreline.

2 weeks later, bouyed by their fine run in the cup, Sengkang Punggol traveled north to Woodlands Stadium to face the Rams and came off with a rather scrappy victory.

The second win in just 4 league games propelled the Dolphins to mid table comfort but it went free falling since then.

Half a year gone, the season looked increasingly bleak for Sengkang Punggol as the team was doomed to finish bottom (surprisingly for the first time in 4 seasons) until the recent resurgent that brought a minuscule ray of hope that the team could struggled out of the final two.

In order to achieve that, winning all winnable games are crucial.

Considering the strength that belies the Sengkang Punggol squad, we cannot easily dismiss any opponent but beating a Gombak side robbed of their first choice rightback and custodian as well as not finding the net in 3 consecutive games as well as a Woodlands team that is candidly playing for experience and pride now; is definitely not a tall order.

A single goal victory against both teams would be heaven sent if the script is written correctly and the bus actually arrives on time.

The projected 8th place in the final standings might even be achievable, which should be a real perk for a team always entrenched in the nether region.

  1. Yes, DEFINITELY winnable! As long as our lads play with their hearts out and keep their tactical formation as they have done for the last few matches, they will be VERY hard to crack defensively.
