A FULL-STRENGTH Young Tigers will be hoping for better results when they resume their S-League campaign on Sunday before taking on Indonesia in the SCTV Cup next month.
Tigers, sixth in the standings with 26 points, play Brunei's DPMM FC in Bandar Seri Begawan on Sunday and then Singapore Armed Forces on Sept 1.
Victory over both teams will put them back in contention for a top-three finish.
They will then face Indonesia's Under-23 side in a one-off match for the SCTV Cup in Jakarta on Sept 9.
Indonesia will be gunning for revenge after their 6-0 loss to Tigers, who had the services of guest players, in a friendly last month.
Tigers coach Ong Kim Swee said it will be a different ball-game in Jakarta.
"I believe Indonesia will be more competitive this time but we will be well-prepared," said Kim Swee recently.
"We had guest players then because some of our regulars were with the national squad."
He hopes to use the match to gauge his team's performance in an international match.
"It is an important match for my players and this exposure, I hope, will help them develop their game," Kim Swee added.
The team will leave for Jakarta on Sept 5. By Ajitpal Singh
