Lions stay on top of the SPL despite their draw against Century Park FC

[SPL] Century Park FC 0 – 0 Shanghai Lions FC

Lions, it was a BIG Game last Sunday in Jinqiao ! On a perfect pitch a win would bring the lions closer to the title and a loss would put the Lions in a more difficult situation. We were up against the fast and fit youngsters of Century Park and with a temperature of 28 degrees we knew that it wont be an easy game. The game evolved with two different halves.

In the first half we had opted to put Benji as right back as Aga got a last moment injury ! Century Park figured out quickly to try and go through the middle instead of over the flanks and almost managed to score when Fafa was set up but an alert Dim snatched the ball away from him. From our side we tested their defense with long balls which they found hard to defend. Dave and Felix came close but missed the last finishing touch ! Soon after it looked as if Century Park would score but the Lions get help from the post.

At half time we stepped it up and made some changes which helped the team. We took control of the match in the first part of the second half and hit the cross bar twice. We got several corners and free kicks but just couldn’t get that final shot or header. Century Park was still dangerous on a few fast counters and the best chance was for Fafa when he sliced through our defense and found himself right in front of Dim our goalie. He was in fine form and blocked the shot. In the end the match ended in goal less draw but it was an excellent game from both teams. Both teams lacked a bit of luck to clinch the three points.
With two games to go for us we have all in our own hands or feet ! Lets all come to the training and stay focused for the last two games !
