PETALING JAYA: Selangor’s Super League title hopes suffered a dent following a narrow 1-0 loss to Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) at the Shah Alam Stadium.

The Red Giants, playing in front of 30,000 fans, went down to Argentine Luciano Figueroa’s goal in the 70th minute.

Saturday night’s defeat also saw Selangor’s 11-match unbeaten run since Feb 14 come to an end.

Ironically, their last defeat – 4-1 – came at the hands of JDT in the reverse fixture at the Larkin Stadium.

Selangor are still at the top of the standings with 34 points but their five-point lead has now been reduced to just two points.

JDT are now second with 32 points.

In Kuantan, Terengganu thrashed Pahang 4-1 in an east coast derby at the Darul Makmur Stadium. The Turtles got their goals through Colombian striker Javier Estupinan (17th), Abdul Manaf Mamat (44th), Zairo Annuar Zailani (89) and Ashaari Shamsuddin (90th). Pahang replied through Damion Stewart (66th).

Kelantan, meanwhile, fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat to T-Team at the Sultan Ismail Stadium in Kuala Terengganu.

Mohd Nizad Ayub scored the winner for the Titans in the 48th minute when he latched on to a perfect through pass from Rwandan striker Jimmy Mulisa to coolly slot the ball past goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat.
