Lion City (2nd)
Last five matches: WWLLL
The Sailors conceded five goals and lost three straight matches for the first time in their history. A disappointing game that ended in a (5-3) loss on match day 25. The Sailors were abysmal from the start to the end as struggling Balestier put five past them.
Lion City are in a strange position right now and might lose out on the title. The Sailors are still the best-scoring side in the division; they have lost six games all season. They have scored the second most (84) goals this season; not just that, they have been pretty stingy at the back with (33) goals conceded so far, the lowest in the division.
The Sailors have fifty-one points in twenty-five games, have lost twice, and have drawn once while recording nine victories at home this season.
