Lae City won all their four matches since the resumption of the PNG National Soccer League – the team coached by Bob Morris is impressing and currently is at the top of the table of the most important football league of Papua New Guinea.
Counting on players of the importance of Ronald Warisan, Alwin Komolong and Emmanuel Simon is certainly something important for Morris and his impressive winning streak, but one particular player is at the spotlight due his recent goalscoring form: Jacob Sabua.
The Papua New Guinean international scored in all of the four matches played by Lae City since the return of the national league – including a thunderbolt against Gulf Komara and the winning goal against Hekari United – something quite unusual for a midfielder, but not for Sabua: the midfielder is known for being always attacking the opposition box, presenting himself in forward positions to finish the plays.
Despite the 26-year-old is still to score for the PNG Kapuls, Sabua is an important figure for Lae City for a long period and is proving his capabilities in the current season. The goalscoring form of the player continued in the strong 9-2 win over FC Bougainville and also in the most recent Lae City’s win over FC Kutubu by 3-1; Sabua scored once in all of the four matches.
Lae City is proving to be the strongest contender to win the minor premiership of the national league as the team is currently at the top of the table with two points ahead of the second place Vitiaz United. If Lae gets the glory one more time in Papua New Guinea, to count on the current Jacob Sabua’s performances might be instrumental in the process.
