DPMM FC’s first loss 

The ritual handshake before the match

What a match!!! Unfortunately, DPMM FC failed to gain any points and surrendered to their first defeat of the season to defending champions Tampines Rovers with a 2-1 score line. What billed to be the clash of the titans early into the season, it was difficult to predict the winner prior to the match with both teams having a perfect start to the season with three consecutive wins.

DPMM FC started well in the first half and they could have bagged a few goals if it wasn’t for the poor finishing of DPMM FC in the final third. Roberto Alviz scored his first goal for the club after a well placed pass by Tosi in the 6th minute. The home team were dominant in most periods of the first half and it took a while for Tampines Rovers to settle in. DPMM FC’s marquee signing player Roy O’Donovan had a couple of chances in the first half but failed to find the net.

The visitors did create some chances but the defence was well marshalled by Boris Raspudic and Shahrulrizal while Wardun Yussof had one important save to make from Tampines midfielder Shahdan Sulaiman’s effort.

One player that caught my eye was Azwan Ali who seemed to have settled in quite well in his left attacking side role. He had many possession and caused a few problems whenever going forward. I see a bright future for the former Indera FC player and with more games, he will gain more experience and confidence. He was involved in most of the attacking opportunities but his team mates couldn’t convert the chances.

The beginning of the second half didn’t have the same pace as the first but it was Tampines who were hungrier of the two. The visitors finally managed to break DPMM FC’s defence with a goal by Miljan Mrdakovic in the 56th minutes. It was also DPMM FC’s first goal that they conceded in the season after three clean sheets. The Croatian took his chance, firing a low shot after DPMM FC failed to defend a simple attacking play from Tampines off a throw in.

The goal woke up DPMM FC and the home team started to pour in attacks. Captain Rosmin Kamis had his effort hit the post and to safety. O’Donovan also suffered the same fate when his open scoring opportunity saved by the post to the disappointment of the crowd. DPMM FC could have scored the winner but it wasn’t their luck with those two chances gone begging.

Rodrigo Tosi ,who had been scoring in every DPMM FC match, failed to find the net but he was instrumental in most of DPMM FC’s attacks. One of his efforts almost found the net when his intended cross went across the face of the goal only for O’Donovan to hit the side netting from close range.

I would have thought DPMM FC had the upper hand when Tampines Rovers had all their substitutes with 30 minutes remaining. I have to salute to Tampines Rovers defender Abdil Qaiyyim who stayed on the pitch till the end and fought off every challenge when DPMM FC attacked. He suffered a nasty fall after clashing with Subhi in the 62nd minute and Tampines had already used all their substitutes. However, he came back to the pitch despite limping occasionally and held the defence till the end.

Tampines Rovers deserved their second goal after a sloppy defending again by DPMM FC. Shahdan of Tampines scored late in the game in 88th minute with a low driving shot after DPMM FC failed to clear the ball. The visitors early had two great opportunities. However, Wardun had two great saves from Miljan Mrdakovic in a matter of three minutes. Despite Tampines having lesser scoring opportunities, they made it count and for the fifth time, DPMM FC failed to beat Tampines Rovers at their home ground.

DPMM FC may have lost the battle but on the positive note, they played with conviction and maturity on the field and based on their performance last night, they deserved more than a draw. DPMM FC now will focus on their next match ahead against Geylang International FC at Bedok Stadium this Friday. DPMM FC 1 (Roberto Alviz) Tampines Rovers 2 (Miljan Mrdakovic, Shahdan Sulaiman)
