PETALING JAYA: Striker Ezrie Ahmad maintained leaders Police’s Premier League unbeaten record with a late goal in the 1-0 win over Johor Darul Ta’zim II at the MBPJ Stadium in Kelana Jaya.
The first team to kick off Monday’s matches, Police toiled for 85 minutes without any success. Luckily, Ezrie found the net five minutes from time to secure all the points.
Said Police coach Dollah Salleh: “It was one of our worst performances, but yet we came off with three points. You can say we were lucky because JDT had most of the possession while nothing went right for us. I think the players were exhausted playing in the evening (4.45pm kick-off).”
Police lead the 12-team standings with 35 points from 13 matches.
Dollah is now hoping the players will regain their form when they face title-contenders Penang next in a top-of-the table clash at the City Stadium on Friday.
“This is going to be the biggest test for my team. A win against Penang should put us in the driver’s seat for the Premier League title and a promotion berth,” said Dollah.
In their first meeting on Jan 27, Police thrashed Penang 5-1 at home. The Panthers have since recovered from the humiliation to lie second in the standings with 26 points from 12 matches.
