Both Victor Mansaray (3 yellow cards) and Đỗ Văn Thuận (red card against Hà Nội FC) will be missing for the game against S. Khánh Hòa on Sunday evening due to suspensions.  There must be a doubt against Quang Nam following his injury on Friday.  His situation is being monitored by club officials.

Nam Định Away.png

As expected, the away fixture against Nam Định FC has been moved to Sunday 15th September due to the World Cup Qualifier in Thailand.  Why it couldn't be played on the Saturday is anyone's guess.  The dates for Week 24 Home to Sài Gòn FC, Week 25 Home to HAGL and Week 26 Away to Hải Phòng FC will also change although no new date has been set for these games.  There is also the little issue of the National Cup Semi-Final fixture Away to Hà Nội FC to factor in.
