PETALING JAYA: Terengganu’s Super League title hopes took a knock when they suffered their first home defeat of the season – losing 2-1 to Sarawak at the Sultan Ismail Stadium in Kuala Terengganu.
Striker Ryan Griffith of Australia was the hero for Sarawak when he netted the winning goal in the 75th minute on Friday.
S. Chanturu had given the visitors the lead in the third minute but a Junior Eldstal own goal levelled the score for Sarawak in the 37th minute.
Third-placed Terengganu, with 20 points, could have gone to the top of the standings if they had won.
It was sweet revenge for Sarawak, who lost 3-1 to Terengganu in the reverse fixture in Kuching last week.
At the Pasir Gudang Stadium, Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) edged PKNS FC 1-0 courtesy of an own goal by Mohd Aminuddin Mohd Noor in the third minute.
JDT move up a spot to fifth on 18 points while PKNS FC dropped one rung to eighth on 13 points.
