Saturn made it hard for themselves but pulled a brilliant comeback with the change of tactics.
Saturn was 2-0 down very quickly within the first 20 mins. First was a confusion over a corner kick by Fairchild with Chardy misplacing a clearance with an own goal. The second goal of Fairchild FC was a simple tap-in after a failed tackle followup.
Saturn pulled a goal back within the first introduction of WJ, after a sloppy start. The rebellious forward collected a loose ball and calmly place the goal back to the post. Nippy can only admire WJ's shot after missing 2 easy shots. Nippy was clearly haunted by the previous match's missing 1-on-1 in USM....
Saturns were punished again in the 2nd half. The RS leftback was brilliant in the first half, but obvious fatigue has caught up and was unable to stop Fairchild FC's right winger. The Fairchild FC winger getting passed him and released a powerful shot pass GK TK's fat finger. 3-1 the scoreline widened.
A tactical master stroke proof to be the changing point. in 60th minutes RS Coach Mr X was seen dancing on the sideline instructing changes. Mr X moved Chardy into the False-9 position, and introduced CS as the advancing midfielder, effectively relegating Nippy from the intelligent striker role into the creative midfielder role. RS played with the glimpse of Kloppy's gegenpressing and the gamble played off. Chardy pull a goal back after a one-2 exchanged with Nippy. the score stayed at 3-2 in the second half.
RS lost their Keano Baky in a 50-50 challenge with Fairchild GK, after a brilliant throughball by Patrick. RS fans feared the worst. after receiving 10 minutes of medical attention and assessment, the med team signal the bench for change as Baky wasnt able to continue no more. Chardy was seen carrying his hand with pillow-talk to console Baky. Team spirit reached highest point.
into the 3rd half, Shuayny picked up a loose ball and after showing off the 7th attempted dribbles, managed to shoot passed Fairchild's GK. RS leveled the scores to 3-3 and Shuayny claiming the goal with much pride although forgotten his earlier mis-placed dribbles.
Chardy playing with much efficiency continued to press and picked up a ball from the right offensive position. He paced thru, looked up and strike. The ball was blocked brilliantly by Fairchild GK. Fans lost in agony that Chardy couldnt claim his hattrick. Nippy met with the perfect timely followup, curled the ball but was saved again by Fairchild GK. Fans "Uhhh and ahhhh" in agony like a pain in the ass..The high octane WJ then popped up and pick up the durian. WJ volleyed a none-stopping shot that flew thru the net. WJ scored the winner with 4-3 completing the great comeback!
During the post match interview, Chardy of RS said "I heard fans showing off displeasures when we were 3-1 down, they're saying individually, teamly, Goalkeeperly we all are better than Fairchild but what the shit this RS is playing and i got taken aback. The Coach's game plan obviously didnt work at first and in the locker room pep-talk we shared our concerns. The Assistant Coach at the sideline think pressing Fairchild may produce better result and we started to take control then. That's how we won the game with the pressing execution". Adriany echo'd "Yeah we f**k them when they have the ball and we won back the 2nd ball and begin pushing, and we f**k them right..."
