KUALA LUMPUR, April 7 – Both teams were prepared for the Premier League biggie at the Selayang Stadium, however, the skies opened up, followed by lightning and thunder, which forced the late afternoon match between Selangor 2 and Sarawak United to be called off.
The match will now be played at a later date – to be decided by the Malaysian Football League.
Sarawak United is unbeaten after five matches with 13 points and in the second spot – one point behind leaders Negri Sembilan who have played one match more.
The Selangor feeder squad is in fifth place with nine points also from five matches. (Before Wednesday’s matches played later at night).

”It is just unfortunate that the match had to be called off due to weather conditions. Both teams (Selangor and Sarawak United) were well prepared for the match,” said Sarawak United chief coach E. Elavarasan.

The postponement of the match could be a blessing in disguise for the East Malaysian outfit who were without their Nigerian ace Uche Agba who is mourning the sudden death of his beloved mother back home in Nigeria on Monday. She was 64 years old.
Agba may be available for Sarawak United’s next match against the FAM-MSN-Project squad at the Hang Jebat Stadium in Melaka this Saturday.
”However, we will not rush him…he (Uche) is still mourning. The team is behind him in grief for his loss,” added Elavarasan.
