KUALA LUMPUR, (Stadiumastro) – Police clung onto their third place position after a 2-2 draw with Sabah at the Selayang Stadium on Tuesday.
The men in blue were determined to salvage some pride left of their Malaysia Cup campaign by hitting the first goal just before the 20th minute mark.
Abdul Rayjal Abdul Latif, who performed brilliantly against Selangor last Saturday, did it again with a sublime chip to gently place the ball into the net.
Then it was a case of exchanging passes until the 74th minute, where a barrage of goals came in.
Police doubled their lead through a header by Silvester Sindih, which was countered with a goal from the visitors’ Leopold Alfonso Otong four minutes later.
Then five minutes from time, the Rhinos mount a final charge to let Henry Parsi head the ball in for both teams to share the spoils.
The draw kept Police in third with one win, two draws and two losses, while Sabah trudge home with a win, one draw and four losses.
