OPOD’s NFL Preview: Sporting Westlake to deny Admiralty in top of the table clash
Reported by: footballopod.com



To satisfy the curiosities of NFL fans and to give possibly a mini sneak preview on what you lads  could expect in the weekend games, OPOD is sharing with you our previews and predictions on two interesting fixtures from each division which are slated to take place on this weekend in the NFL scene.

Division 2

A determined Sporting Westlake to battle for a result

Date: 26 May 2012
Time: 5.00pm
Venue: Serangoon Stadium
Opponent: Admiralty FC

OPOD’s Preview: With current leaders Admiralty FC in a marvellous unbeaten run since the start of this season, the odds are against Sporting Westlake FC as the latter are undergoing a dip in form. Nevertheless, you can’t rule out Sporting Westlake in this top of the table. Looking back in the early stages of Division 3 last season, they were the only side who overcame the reigning Division 3 champions with a 3-2 scoreline. To add on that, Admiralty could seep into complacency after a lengthy spell in ‘paradise’whilst wounded counterpart Sporting Westlake is ready to pounce any mistakes made by the division leaders.

OPOD’s Prediction: Blessed with the availability of striking duo Jumari Semin, Hakim Abdullah, we are rooting for Sporting Westlake to come out as victors with a similar scoreline of 3-2.

Katong looks to instill stability in their backline

Date: 26 May 2012
Time: 5.00pm
Venue: Bedok RTC
Opponent: Prisons Sports & Recreation Club

OPOD’s Preview: Although Katong FC has showed positive signs of scoring goals , their tendency to leak goals has caused them dearly in recent games. Looking back at the BPL this season, you have seen how Bolton Wanderers tried to plug the gap in their backline in only the latter stages which resulted them into demotion. The time is now for Katong FC to prevent themselve from dropping into a shocking relegation dogfight.

OPOD’s Prediction: Banking on the experience of former Prime League defender Lee Kok Yeow, Katong FC is able to bag this away win with a 2-0 scoreline.

Division 1

Good opportunity for SAFSA to recover from barren spell

Date: 27 May 2012
Time: 7.00pm 
Venue: Meridien JC
Opponent: Ang Mo Kio United FC

OPOD’s Preview: For those who have followed SAFSA’s journey towards securing a fifth place finish last season. You would remember the emergence of former skipper and current Geylang United footballer Ng Zhi Wei when his surging runs and creativity in the attacking third breathed life into a ‘normal-looking’ SAFSA side. Some may disagree that SAFSA could pull off a result at Meridien JC as you have boys battling against the men in Ang Mo Kio United FC. But in this group of younger lads, there are a talented few who are itching to make their mark in the NFL scene.

OPOD’s Prediction: Equipped with pacy defenders who are able to contain the likes of Ang Mo Kio United FC’s forwards Samuel London and Ashraf Ariffin, we are going for SAFSA with a 1-0 win.  

Eunos Crescent to get back on the winning track

Date: 26 May 2012
Time: 7.00pm 
Venue: St Wilfred Field
Opponent: Borussia Zamrud FC

OPOD’s Preview: Slipped to a shocking 5-1 defeat on their league opener before facing title favorites SRC, Tiong Bahru FC and SCC NFL in arguably the toughest start in NFL this season, you could empathize with the misfortune Eunos Crescent as the results did not go their way. Sometimes, when you suffer a little and learn things through the hard way in the game of football, you become stronger and better. This could be the case of Eunos Crescent FC. From here, we could possibly witness a resurgent Eunos Crescent making their way into the title battle once again.

OPOD’s Prediction: Possibly with the exclusion of First XI’s A Lang due to the Grand Final against S-League All Stars this Sunday and the poor form displayed by his Borussia Zamrud’s teammate and former S League player Ashrin Shariff, Eunos Crescent could capitalize and hand their opponents a 3-0 rout. 

Division 3

Refreshed Summerville to prevail with a decisive winner

Date: 27 May 2012
Time: 5.00pm 
Venue: Jurong Stadium
Opponent: Starlight Soccerites FC

OPOD’s Preview: Two seasons ago in the BPL, you have West Ham United who went down the path of destruction and relegation thanks to the boring and ineffective style of football from former gaffer Avram Grant. Currently, the Hammers has emerged as the talk of the town thanks to the surreal transformation from the incoming Big Sam and his new personalities in the dressing room. Likewise, you have Summerville FC who could possibly follow into the footsteps of West Ham United despite succumbing to a forgettable spell in Division 2 last season. Judging at the performances Summerville FC is displaying week in and week out this season, they should not have any problems picking up the three points at Jurong Stadium this weekend.

OPOD’s Prediction: Buoyed by the impressive showing forward Phyroas Khan has displayed of late, we are backing this man in form to convert the decisive winner against Starlight Soccerites.

Mountbatten to find their place in mid-table gradually

Date: 27 May 2012
Time: 5.00pm 
Venue: Kallang Practise Track
Opponent: Nanyang CSC

OPOD’s Preview: For the followers of Mountbatten FC, you would have bemoaned at the inconsistent form your team has been showing since the start of this season. But fear not, just like last season, we are backing your team to find their feet and moved out of the drop zone gradually. Hopefully, Mountbatten FC could even make it to mid-table come the end of the season by securing maximum points over Nanyang CSC this weekend.  

OPOD’s Prediction: Boosted by the presence of former S League players Jerry Bartholomeusz and Alimin Mohamed, we are tipping Mountbatten FC to snap up a 2-1 win.
