Player to Watch: Cameron Puertas

Union SG's Spanish midfielder Cameron Puertas has been the driving force behind their title challenge this season.

As well as being the team's main playmaker, creating eleven goals in the First Division A so far, the 25-year-old has chipped in with four goals and is just one goal off equaling his tally from the previous campaign.

We're backing Puertas to put in another commanding display as UnioN SG take another step closer to the league title on Wednesday night.
