Mendy Double Seals Home Victory

Returning from suspension, Frederic Mendy’s brace ensured that Home United collected another three points despite another lacklustre performance.

Needing just six minutes to break the deadlock, Mendy pounced on an under hit back pass from the Geylang defence to race into the box and calmly rounded Geylang custodian Yazid Yasin before slotting the ball into an empty net.

With both teams playing well below their usual standards, chances were few and far between as the score remained 1-0 to Home United at half time.

Geylang’s defence got off to another nervy start in the second half with some careless passing, allowing Mendy to nod home an inch perfect cross by Qiu Li from the left for the Frenchman’s second of the night and seventh goal of the season

Seven minutes later, Kim Jae Hong gave his side a glimmer of hope, capping off a neatly crafted moved to slot home his fourth goal of the season.

Though Geylang came to life after pulling a goal back, they failed to capitalise on their dominance and a snapshot in the dying minutes by substitute Masrezwan Masturi flashed agonisingly pass the upright.

Home’s Korean striker Kim Dae Eui had a chance to give his side a flattering scoreline but his cheeky chip bounced off the crossbar to the delight of a well-beaten Yazid Yasin.

Though Home collected all three points, coach Lee Lim Saeng was unhappy with his side’s performance as he said after the match, “We needed to get three points, but I am disappointed with the performance. We were disorganised, it is very difficult to see what we want.”
