DPMM FC, perfect record 

DPMM FC celebrating their goal against Home United last night at Jalan Besar Stadium. DPMM FC won 3-0 and maintain a perfect record in the S•League
Steve Kean does live up to his word. He aimed for 3 points and nothing less than a draw. He was wary of the quality of their opponents last night but Kean had high hopes because of the strong partnership for DPMM FC’s attacking line. He was happy that Roy O’Donovan has settled and gelled in well with the players despite his late arrival and missing most of the pre-season training which lasted six weeks. Last night was a great testament of O’Donovan’s calibre as a marquee player as he scored a brace in DPMM FC’s 3-0 away victory Home United (Protectors).

DPMM FC had a comfortable half time lead with O’Donovan scoring in the 25th minute and Rodrigo Tosi in the 36th minute. DPMM FC had a few chances that they failed to convert. The Protectors also had scoring opportunities but their finishing failed to find the net. After the break, Tosi added the cushion lead to give a much comfortable lead and the win. After two away victories, the memories of last season was easily forgotten when DPMM FC finished 8th last season. DPMM FC were usually vulnerable away from home last season. It was more of different story now. They have scored four away goals and conceded none in two away matches and DPMM FC are also invincible at home.

Kean is definitely happy with the maximum 9 points and this will give more smiles to the DPMM FC management on the consecutive victories since the start of the season.

According to the interview by S•League, Kean were happy with his players but it is still a long journey ahead.

“When we don’t have possession of the ball, we worked very hard – not only the back four but the whole team,” he said after the match.

“There were periods in the game where after you score, you’re always a little bit open to conceding but we kept our concentration and worked our socks off the ball. It wasn’t the three goals but the clean sheet that pleased me most. I think they can [play better than what they did today] and we’ve evolved into a real good side but I still think there’s still more to come from us.”

I was a bit surprised that Home United failed to find the net, given that they have a high good scoring goal ratio. I believe that the fixtures that they are having might take a toll on them. Three days before, they had an AFCCup match against an Indonesian club and soon they are traveling to India for their next AFC Cup match.

DPMM FC’s next match will be on at Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium on Sunday 23rd March as they take on champions Tampines Rovers, the other undefeated team in the S•League. Pictures taken by Darren Ho from the S•League.

DPMM FC Roy O’Donovan finally opened his goal account with a brace. He even hit the woodwork earlier in the game. Good things to come for the former Sunderland player.

Lee Kwan Woo of Home United had chances but failed to score and thanks to the towering defence of Boris Raspudic and Shahrulrizal Abd Rahman of DPMM FC. They have protected the keeper on three occasions and kept a clean sheet in the process.

Left back Sairol Hj Sahari was magnificent outing and even clear the ball off the line. In this picture, Sirina Camara of Home United skipping a tackle by Sairol and he also had his shot saved by Wardun Yussof in goals

It was good to see Hendra playing some match time after subbing for Roberto. Shahrazen was also introduced late in the game and it was also his first match appearance in the S•League this season

Wardun Yussof has kept two clean sheets and he was dominant in goal against Home United

It was good to see some DPMM FC Brunei supporters at Jalan Besar Stadium

Rodrigo Tosi has scored in all three games for DPMM FC. He’s definitely a key player for DPMM FC.
