PETALING JAYA, April 9 – It was a red day for the Red Eagles as Kedah FC fell to a 1-2 defeat to Terengganu in Friday’s Super League match played at the Darulaman Stadium in Alor Setar which ended their four-match winning streak.
Deep into injury time Kedah was reduced to nine players when Fadzrul Danel and Rodney Celvin were sacked for rough play.
For Terengganu, it was a sweet win that came after a defeat to Sabah FC and draws against Petaling Jaya City FC and Pahang. The three points off Kedah took Terengganu to third spot in the league with 15 points after eight matches, while Kedah remained in second place on 16 points. JDT remains on top with 17 points after seven matches.
It was an own goal by Terengganu defender Muhammad Faudefeat that gave Kedah the lead after 39 minutes when he turned the ball into his own net in attempting to clear Rabih Ataya’s attempt.
Terengganu, however, drew level in the 42nd minute when David Da Silva, back in the team after a long layoff due to injury, slotted home a penalty after Kedah’s Ariff Farhan was hauled up for hands.
Azam Azmi fired home a pile driver off a cross by Faisal Halim on the hour mark for Terengganu’s second goal which turned out to be the winner.
