BEFC vs Pumas

BEFC vs Pumas 2019
19th October (Saturday)

At the time of writing I get to say this is a top of the table division 1 clash between first and second place sides!!! Pumas are the current division 1 champions and we know they are a strong and fast side who are looking to take over from Hibernian as the number 1 side on the TML. We know Pumas are good and we've had battles with them especially the season they were promoted to Division 1, as we ran them close to the end of the season, and also a disasterous FCJ Cup final. However we've also had good results against them when we've been in harder circumstances, such as a 0 - 1 defeat where we played an entire half with 10 men, and the last time in the league resulted in a 1 - 1 draw in which we were on top of them for most of the second half and without a full strength side. Last time though we got hammered in FCJ cup, although with a lot of players out and despite scoreline the performance wasn't actually that bad.

Now we have had good results against strong sides, especially our performance against Hibernian we have the capability to do damage to Pumas title hopes and push on with our own progress in competing in Division 1. When we are disciplined we are very hard to score against, as we showed against Hibs, and still most of our goals conceded come from being counter attacked when we over commit in attack. We are getting better at this and it is showing in our results. So if we keep the way we are playing, always looking to improve and execute the team strategy we can really test the current TML Champions!
