The events of last May still rankle.

To come so close to claiming another top flight title but to have it snatched away in such dramatic fashion hurt, even more so with the eventual winners being our noisy-neighbours.

Rafael, one of those to suffer the heartbreak of last May, has vowed to assist in getting that crown back, remarking ahead of the fixture to the media,

“There is definitely a determination to get the title back after the way we lost it. It was hard to take.”

“We will never forget how we felt after that last game. We just looked at each other and asked. ‘How did we lose that?` After last season we just wan tour title back.”


And on what winning on Sunday might mean Rafael added,

“To get a six-point lead over them is very important.”

“If we open the gap it can make it easier for us.”


Although if a victory for us is to be the outcome and we move six points clear, it should be remembered that complacency can be a great leveler.
