PETALING JAYA: Nigerian striker Abdulafees Abdulsalam scored a brace to lift Perak off the bottom of the Super League standings as they edged Armed Forces 2-1 at the Perak Stadium.
Abdulafees was on target in the 40th and 86th minutes to earn Perak their fourth win of the season.
Forces’ consolation goal was scored by Argentinian Juan Arostegui deep into injury time.
With the win, Perak moved a rung up to 11th with 13 points and sent Forces, on 10 points, to the bottom of the 12-team league.
At the Sultan Ismail Stadium in Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu were held to a 1-1 draw by T-Team in a local derby.
The Turtles went ahead through Zairo Anuar Zalani’s strike in the 36th minute.
But Rwandan striker Jimmy Mulisa headed in the equaliser for the Titans in the 77th minute to salvage a point.
The result propelled the Turtles to third spot with 25 points from 15 matches.
T-Team, however, remain ninth with 16 points.
Meanwhile, the Premier League match between UiTM and Penang at the UiTM Stadium in Shah Alam was abandoned in the 51st minute due to heavy rain.
