Kanan: This win is very important for us

This win is very important for us. After our win against Balestier, we had loss two games consecutively, including the to Tampines last week.
I have noted on Young Lions tactics in their last few games, which was mainly long balls. That was why we had to take a defensive approach to the game. But we did create a few good chances, like Mun Seung Man and Michael King who both hit the crossbar in the first half.
I told the players to be patient and not expose ourselves to allow the opponents to come at us.
We created chances, and we scored two goals from set pieces. That really shows how important set pieces can be in a football game.
