Keeper Syed Adney fails to hold Azidan’s free kick

SHAH ALAM: Selangor kept their position at the top of the Super League with a 1-0 win over Sabah at the Shah Alam Stadium last night.

It was a goalkeeping error by the Rhinos’ Syed Adney that gifted the Red Giants victory after he failed to hold on to a shot by Azidan Sarudin from a free kick in the 71st minute.

In Kangar, Kelantan bounced back from a slump in recent matches with an resounding 5-1 victory over basement side Perlis with Badri Razi scoring a hat-trick (46th, 66th, 78th) and international Norsharul Idlan Talaha chalking up a brace (6th, 43rd).

The Northern Lions’ solitary goal was scored by Faiz Subri in the 11th minute.

The win for the Red Warriors enabled them to move a rung up to third place in the standings, overtaking Perak.

At the Darulmakmur Stadium in Kuantan, Negri Sembilan started their match well against Pahang with an early goal from Idris Karim, who beat goalkeeper Rosfaizol Azuar with an attempt from close range in the 10th minute.

But 17 minutes later, there was despair for the Deer as striker Hairuddin Omar was set off for fouling Pahang forward Alafi Mahmud.

Pahang capitalised on their advantage in numbers to force a 1-1 draw with Famirul Asraf Sayuti netting the equaliser in the 79th minute.
