S-League: Rams out of the woods
Resolute rams: Woodlands' Chang Jo Yoon (in green, tussling with Albirex's Takeshi Nagasawa) starring in last week's 1-0 win over Albirex.

SINGAPORE - Looking at the Great Eastern-Yeo's S-League table now, it's hard to imagine that Woodlands Wellington have been propping up the league's rear for the last three seasons.

With six wins in their last seven matches in all competitions, including a penalty shoot-out victory over Geylang in the League Cup, the Rams are sitting pretty in fifth after 17 games.

Aside from claiming impressive scalps such as Home United and Brunei DPMM, Woodlands have also done the double over Albirex Niigata.

It is a far cry from the team that have looked so miserable in recent times, and coach Salim Moin believes it is down to having a squad of players to call his own.

"It's the quality of the players that I've signed," said the former Singapore international.

"They are tactically sound, so what I've emphasised on is fitness while giving them more tactical knowledge.

"You can see now that they produce good football and they are well-organised. That's one wonderful part about the players I've brought in."
