Singh Sabha's title chances take a blow as Hype Train earn a crucial point in the Premier Division



PICTURE: Title contenders Singh Sabha were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Hype Train in the Premier Division on Saturday.


Singh Sabha saw their chances of retaining the Premier Division title this season dealt a blow after a 2-2 draw with Hype Train on Saturday.

A goal from Leon Mannion gave Hype Train the lead inside seven minutes but the scores were level at the break after Hassan Mahmood struck for the hosts.

The 2020/21 champions edged ahead through Mubarak Bashir but their lead did not last long as a goal from substitute Ashraf Ali meant the visitors left with a vital point.

The draw means Singh Sabha are now three points behind leaders, Britwell, with both teams having six matches still to play this season.

Hype Train remain second from bottom and three points from safety but have played at least five games fewer than most other teams in the division.

Iver Heath are now four matches unbeaten in the League and up to fourth place in the table following a 4-0 victory at home to Frontline, who remain in seventh position.

Old Windsor Reserves missed out on the chance to reach the Slough Town Junior Cup final this season after a 3-0 defeat against FC Deportivo Galicia Reserves in the Semi Finals.

Cup fever returns with Saturday with two Quarter Finals ties in both the Ascot & Fielden Cup and League Cup (2pm kick offs).

In the Ascot Cup, KS Gryf, third in the Premier Division host Southcote, fourth in Division One, while Frontline Reserves have a tough ask against Britwell.

There is an all-Premier Division tie in the League Cup as Old Windsor host Stoke Poges while Frontline welcome Baylis United, the December/January Team of the Month.
