Ceres, Global get AFC Cup boost with Singapore Cup dates change


Philippines Football League (PFL) outfits Ceres-Negros and Global FC have received a boost in their AFC Cup campaigns with the news that their Singapore Cup preliminary round fixtures have been pushed back until late June.
Thursday's announcement from Football Association of Singapore (FAS), who changed the original dates from the May 8 draw, will give both clubs more time to focus on the AFC Cup, where they are fighting to reach the ASEAN zonal final.
Ceres will attempt to overturn a 3-2 first leg deficit against Malaysian champions Johor Daryl Ta'zim (JDT) in a home tie on May 31, while Global are looking to pick up a victory in Singapore against Home United a day earlier after a 2-2 first leg draw.
Ceres will embark on their Singapore Cup journey against Hougang United at Hougang Stadium on June 20, three days after their PFL fixture against JP Voltes.
As for Global, they will play Geylang International at Clementi Stadium on June 21 -- three days after a league game against Ilocos United.http://www.espnfc.com/blog/football-asia/153/post/3128774/ceres-global-get-afc-cup-boost-with-singapore-cup-dates-change
