THREE TALKING POINTS AHEAD OF SAIGON SAINTS VS SPORTING SAIGON
SAINTS SEEK THREE WINS ON THE BOUNCE
Sitting in 5th place with a game in hand, a win today would put the Saints in a fine position going into the Christmas break. Not even Vu, the longest standing member of the squad, can remember the last time the Saints recorded three successive league victories. We would have to ask Iaian Campbell and attempt to decipher the response or just make up some nonsense, which we try our best to avoid.
GAFFER SAYS DERBY MATCH IS LIKE A DERBY
Speaking earlier in the week, Saint's gaffer Simon Finnigan had this to say, 'I work with these lads and they speak English, so in many ways we are treating this as a derby, due to past games with them, geographical proximity and again the fact that we can understand what they say.' The words will be music to Sporting's ears, as they have long yearned for a rivalry with the Saints and it appears that their four year plan to get one may finally be coming to fruition. Well done fellas.
TOPSCORER RACE HOTS UP
Bobby Burke knocked in two last week to become the club's top league goalscorer, with two goals. In close pursuit behind is Trae Christopher with one, Sean Sweeney with one and most notably Simon Finnigan also with one! It's tough to say if there is still time for any other players to come into the race, Webmaster 1.0 and his fantastic headwear may fancy getting into the mix this afternoon.
