Tigers aim to maul Eastern Star

Normal, Sports

CMSS Tigers are aiming for another win against Eastern Star in the Telikom National Soccer League mid-week clash at Lloyd Robson Oval today in Port Moresby.
After hammering the new kids on the block, Besta PNG United 4-2 last Saturday in Lae, the boys under coach Joo-wan Jung are aiming to keep their winning run intact against Eastern Star.
Tigers are desperate for a win to regain their lead on the NSL table.
Jung will be calling on the services of skipper Ken Gule, Nathan Vincent, Mante Kavoi, Gari Moka, Sowera Guti and striker Raymond Gunemba to tussle for victory against their opponents.
Blended with experience are young guns Bruce Kusunan, Samson Kaniyosi, Daniel Joe and Jeffrey Feeger.
Eastern Star, after failing to shine over Tukoko University, will come out in full force tomorrow against Tigers.
Coach Francis Moiyap is likely to call up the services of Simon Ealedona and Adrian Komu from their sick bed while Andy Barnabas will stay on the pain killer to take the field in this all-important match for the club.
Substitute striker Andrew Marampau Jr who was causing havoc in the Tukoko University defence last week, will aim to continue his devastating form.  
In the main game, Hekari will face struggling Esiloan University Inter FC.
The defending premiers are primed to win the game while University will have to work out some miracle.
Hekari will be fielding their star players Pita Bolaitoga, Benjamin Mela, Erickson Komeng, David Muta and Samuel Kini in the midfield while Kema Jack and Tuimaci Manuca in the frontline.
University have some very competitive players but need to find a good midfield and frontline combination as this has been a weakness.
Powerful striker Neil Hans was ineffective at the flank in the last outing and could be used in the frontline if they want to break Hekari’s formidable defence.
