Our Cheetahs' perserverance paid off as they won 1-0 in their opening match at Hougang Stadium. Cheetahs did not let the 1 man advantage go to waste after a Woodlands player was sent off in the closing minutes of the game. However, the second half penalty miss was a waste.
There could have been more goals if not for poor finishing. Fortunately, Diallo scored the winner in the final minutes to give Cheetahs the perfect start to the season on Valentine's Day.
