Bhalstier edge closer to top five finish
Tiger’s coach Darren Stewart was pleased with his side’s performance as they drew 0-0 with second place Albirex Niigita.
The Japanese satellite side now need a win in the final game of the season to cement second place.
While Balestier are guaranteed a sixth place finish but could reach as high as third should results go their way.
Speaking to Goal Singapore Stewart was impressed with his sides ability, he said: “I thought we were tremendous and especially in the very first half, we were really, really outstanding.
“It was a great game of football for the S.League, it was tremendous, we pressed fantastic tonight and that took a lot of energy out of us and that possibly put us down a bit in the second half in terms of energy, but it was a superb performance from the lads.
“In the second half, Albirex came back into it but a quality team like them will come back into a game.
“I am just proud of the boys. We had a go in the end and pushed Paul [Cunningham] up front but we just couldn’t get the ball to him.”
In the final game of the season (September 19th) The Tigers will face Woodlands Wellington who are below them on goal difference only.
