PETALING JAYA, Aug 30 – Kuala Lumpur City FC skipper Paulo Josue turned out to be a pain for Terengganu FC when the Brazilian fired home the winner for a 1-0 win which severely dented the East Coast side’s hopes of finishing second in the Super League on Sunday.
The Brazilian was at the right place at the right time to beat Terengganu custodian Suhaimi Hussein who could only parry J. Partiban earlier long-range attempt. Suhaimi could do nothing to save the unstoppable shot in the 28th minute.
It stretched KL City’s unbeaten record to 10 matches. It also kept KL City’s unbeaten home record this season which left coach Bojan Hodak all smiles with his team in sixth place with 30 points from 20 matches.
The Turtles are now in third place with 37 points, the same as Penang who is fourth on goal difference after a 2-1 win over Petaling Jaya City FC at the City Stadium.
It was another Brazilian who paved the way for Penang’s win. He gave the Panthers the lead with his trademark header as early as the fourth minute from an assist from Quinten Cheng.
Tajikistan striker Sheriddin Boboev scored Penang’s second goal just before the halftime break. PJ City reduced the deficit through skipper P. Rajesh who chested a long ball from K. Gurusamy on the left to beat national keeper Samuel Somerville.
Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) has already won the league title –  eighth in a row – with unassailable 51 points from 20 matches. Currently, Kedah FC sits second in the league with 38 points from 18 matches.
