PETALING JAYA: Table-toppers Police continued with their flawless run in the Premier League after making short work of Penang Water Authority (PBAPP FC) with a 4-0 win at the MBPJ Stadium in Kelana Jaya.
The high-riding cops picked up their sixth consecutive win on Friday with goals from Bobby Gonzales (23rd minute), Munir Amran (51st), Charles Chad (54th) and Ali Ashfaq (73rd).
Police coach Dollah Salleh said that the team played to instructions but their biggest test would be in the next three matches.
They are scheduled to face Felda United away on March 21, Negri Sembilan at home on March 24 and Kedah away on March 28.
“That is the real challenge for the boys. These three teams are among the serious contenders for the Premier League title and promotion slots. If we can get a result against them, then we stand a good chance to finish on top,” said Dollah.
Police have a strong set of offensive players – led by Brazilian Chad, national player Bobby and Maldives’ Ali, who is rated as one of the best strikers from the South Asia region.
Dollah said the strike force has made the difference in the team, having scored 22 goals in six matches.
“We have three strong finishers and all are in good form. If they can maintain their form, we should be able to get the desired results,” said Dollah.
Police’s others wins came against Johor Darul Ta’zim II (3-1), Penang (5-1), Sabah (1-0), Perlis (7-1) and DRB Hicom (2-1).
