Sabah were brought crashing back to earth last night after being defeated by Police in the 2nd round 1st leg at the MP Stadium, Selayang.
Sabah only have themselves to blame after letting their halftime lead to be overtook by two second half goals from the hosts. Sabah's leading scorer Andre gave the Rhinos the lead on the 30th minute. His personal tally now is 8 goals in all competition.
The police meanwhile replied through Budi Sudarsono in the 47th and Mohd Afif Amiruddin on the 62nd minute and maintained their lead until fulltime.
However they will have a hard time to defend this lead when they play the second leg in Likas Stadium in a week's time.
The second leg will be played on the 27th of March 2008.
