GEORGE TOWN: Premier League leaders Police stayed on course for promotion to the Super League after beating Penang 2-1 in the top-of-the-table clash at the City Stadium.
Brazilian Chad Souza scored the cops’ opening goal in the 54th minute on Friday while Ashfaq Ali of Maldives whacked in the winner in the third minute of added time just moments after missing a penalty.
South Korean Lee Gil-hoon replied for Penang in the 62nd minute.
The win sees the cops open up a commanding seven-point lead at the top of the table.
Penang’s first home defeat of the season cost them second spot in the standings as Felda United beat Sabah 2-1 to jump above them.
Police, who started the day six points ahead of the Panthers, had won 5-1 in their first round encounter at the Selayang Stadium.
But Dollah Salleh’s men knew they could forget about another big victory in front of the 10,000-strong Penang supporters as the home side dug in and defended stoutly.
