PETALING JAYA: PKNP and Kuala Lumpur are out of the Super League.

Kuala Lumpur was beaten 2-1 by FA Cup finalist Perak in Ipoh, while a lacklustre PKNP didn't show much guile and determination in their 1-0 defeat against Petaling Jaya City at the Petaling Jaya Stadium here on Sunday (July 21).

In the game in Ipoh, Careca was the toast for the Seladangs as he scored in the 31st and 67th minute, while Luke Woodland scored the City Boys’ consolation in the 76th minute.

The defeat saw Kuala Lumpur finishing bottom of the league with 14 points. 

PKNP who had to win their match to secure 10th spot looked devoid of ideas and only woke up after Washington Brandao’s penalty in the 75th minute but it wasn't enough.

That result saw the Manjung-based side finishing 11th with 16 points and the management has stated that the team would be disbanded next season if they are relegated.

Felda United survived the relegation battle as they beat FA Cup finalist Kedah 4-1 at the Tun Razak Stadium in Jengka, Pahang.

Felda’s goals were scored by Jocinei Schad (6th), Faiz Mazlan (32nd), Khairul Amri (85th), Jasazrin Jamaluddin (90th) and Kei Ikeda (93rd). 

Kedah’s lone goal was scored by Jonathan Baumann in the 78th minute. 

To compound matters, Kedah centre-back Renan Alves was sent off in the 75th minute.
