T-Team's Leondro Dos Santos clears the ball in the Super League match against Selangor in Kuala Terengganu on Tuesday. The match ended 1-1. - ZABIDI TUSIN/ The Star
KUALA TERENGGANU: Selangor failed to grab the chance to jump to the top of the Super League after being held to a 1-1 draw by T-Team at the Sultan Ismail Stadium.
The Red Giants showed intent in the early stages and nearly went ahead through Brazilian Paolo Rangel but his brilliantly executed freekick in the 13th minute was tipped over by T-Team goalkeeper Shahril Saari.
But Selangor struck from the resulting corner kick as striker A. Thamil Arasu headed in from close range.
T-Team nearly equalised in the 25th minute but Azrul Hazran Amiludin Baki’s close range shot was finger-tipped away by goalkeeper Farizal Marlias, with the ball hitting the post before going out.
The second half saw the home side having more of the possession but it was only in the 80th minute that the Titans managed to get the equaliser when Indonesian forward Patrick Wanggai tapped in a freekick from Nelson Martin, much to the delight of the home fans.
Wanggai, however, was given his marching orders in stoppage time when referee Fairuzi Mat Desa ruled that he had elbowed Thamil.
The draw sees Selangor move into second place, replacing Terengganu, but it wasn’t enough for them to overtake league leaders Pahang.
