SHAH ALAM: Selangor wasted the chance to top the Super League table when they were held to a goalless draw by Terengganu at the Shah Alam Stadium.
The Red Giants are now tied on points with leaders Pahang on 28 points from 14 matches but Pahang lead the standings on a better goal difference. The Elephants have a healthy plus-11 goal difference while the Giants have a plus-six.
Selangor have only themselves to be blamed on Sunday for letting the chance to go top slip through their fingers as they failed to pose any serious threat against Terengganu.
Terengganu looked sharper upfront but Selangor goalkeeper Mohd Farizal Marlias was in his elements to deny the Turtles from making any breakthroughs in the match.
The best chance of the game came in the first half when Terengganu’s Javier Estupinan’s header from team-mate Ismail Faruqi’s freekick was palmed away by Farizal.
The second half was a drab affair as both teams struggled to make any meaningful attempts at goal. Selangor’s top striker Paulo Rangel hardly had a decent look at goal and was often left isolated upfront.
Selangor coach Mehmet Durakovic handed new signing midfielder Mohd Nazmi Faiz Mansor his debut in the 60th minute with the hope of getting a victory.
But the move did not yield the desired result and Selangor had to settle for a point.
