FFT's S.League Team of the Month: March

After a pulsating start to the S.League in February which saw a whopping 37 being scored, the excitement died down a little with only 23 goals scored in March. This has mainly been down to defences tightening up and so no surprises that defenders are the flavour of the month for FourFourTwo’s writers as they voted on the Team of the Month for March! 

Goalkeeper: Syazwan Buhari (Geylang International)

Syazwan has been tough to breach in goal.

With another tremendous month in between the sticks for the Eagles, Syazwan, along with two other players,retained their spot in FFT’s TOTM.

The 23-year-old was in fine form as he kept two clean sheets in as many matches in March against Albirex Niigata (S) and Balestier Khalsa.

Left back: Daniel Bennett (Geylang International)

Bennett still continuing his fine form from last month.

With every game that passes, Bennett continues to amaze and dumbfound critics who had reacted with scepticism when the Eagles decided to sign the 38-year-old.

This month, Bennett combined his experience with guile, turning in an especially superb performance against Albirex at left-back.

Centre-back: Shariff Samat (Geylang International)

Sharif Samat has established himself as an important first-team player.

The word temperamental is often associated with Shariff but he was the unmovable rock at the heart of an Eagles defence which kept two clean sheets in March.

His maturity and leadership have been a massive boost for his unbeaten side.

Centre-back: Kento Fukuda (Warriors FC)

Kento Fukuda is uncompromising at the back.

The Warriors came into March without a victory and Kento’s rise in form has come at the right time.

His partnership with the returning Madhu Mohana has been spectacular with the Warriors conceding only once in the draw and two wins that they registered.

Centre-back: Delwinder Singh (Hougang United)

Delwinder has struck up a fearsome partnership with Wahyudi.

Losing 4-1 to Tampines Rovers at the end of February must have jolted the Cheetahs because they have gone on to concede only one goal in March, aided mostly by a solid centre-back pairing of Delwinder and Wahyudi.

Right back: Wahyudi Wahid (Hougang United)

Wahyudi has found his place in defence with Hougang.

Despite his lack of height, Wahyudi has more often than not, showed his class at centre-back.

The former LionsXII utility player started and finished every game for Hougang this month as the club surged to the top of the league with two wins and a draw.
