You cannot just blame the players for not getting the win last night for over-confidence, even Sabah’s leading English newspaper got it wrong. The day after Sabah draw 1-1 with MP Muar, the news published the following:
Sabah go top
Johor: Sabah are the new league leaders after thumping Johor MP Muar in the only Premier League match played on Friday.
Following the away win at the Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Hassan Yunos Stadium, Sabah now sit atop the standings on 41 points after 18 games, just a point in front of previous leaders Felda United FC. Selangor PKNS are third on 39 points.
However, Sabah could find themselves pushed down to third if Felda United and Selangor PKNS win their respective matches on Monday as Sabah will start a six-week break due to the Harvest Festival celebrations.
It’s a THUMPING win! 😀
