PETALING JAYA, 12 Sept – Kedah came from behind to snatch a 2-1 win over gritty Felda United at the Tun Abdul Razak Stadium in Jengka on Saturday.
The win moved them into the second spot in the Super League on a night when Pahang defeated Police by a similar margin in Kuantan.
The Red Eagles scored twice through Kipre Tchetche (48th) and Hadin Azman (66th) after Syahmi Zamri had given the Fighters the lead after 46 minutes.
The full points saw the northern state on 13 points after seven matches – six points behind leaders Johor Daru Takzim (JDT) who have won the Super League title for the past six years and look good to make it seven in a row.
Perak slipped to third place with 11 points followed by Melaka United, Terengganu, Selangor, and UiTM FC all bunched on 10 points each, separated by goal difference.
However, the show was at the Darul Makmur Stadium in Kuantan where beleaguered Pahang put an end to a two-match losing run with a 2-1 win over the bottom-placed Police – giving coach Dollah Salleh a much-needed relief.
Brazilian Ivan Carlos got the first for the Elephants on 37 minutes before Halim Faisal got the second in the 74th minute, Police pulled one back through Amir Saiful Badeli in the 83rd minutes. Pahang has nine points from seven matches and next plays Felda away.
Petaling Jaya City FC shared the spoils with Sabah at the Petaling Jaya Stadium. The homesters grabbed the lead through their Brazilian striker Elizeu Araujo in the 51st minute before Sabah’s reliable Serbian Rodoljub Paunovic equalized after 87 minutes.
