Sabah 0 vs 1 Singapore LIONSXII

Sabah was inflicted with their first home defeat of the season after being edged 1-0 by Lions XII in a Super League tie at the Likas Stadium yesterday.

The homesters gave all they could, but failed to find the much needed equaliser after Hariss Harun had put the visitors ahead with a 19th minute header.

The defeat, which is their second after four games into the season, left the more than 10, 000 fans disappointed.

The game also saw both sides playing with 10 men after Mafry Balang and Irwan Shah were given the marching orders following a scuffle in the 33rd minute.

It was a game that Sabah dominated throughout, but never looked dangerous as the Lions XII packed their defence in numbers.

The visitors stunned the home fans when Hariss scored the opener with a header that saw it deflect off a Sabah defender before the ball went into the Sabah net with keeper Azizon Abd Kadir caught off guard.

At the half hour mark, a nice one-two between Bobby Gonzales, Brendan Gan and Michael Baird saw Sabah presented with a chance to draw level, but only to find Michael’s attempt from just outside the six-yard box blocked by a defender.

After the break, Sabah doubled their efforts, but Lions XII stoutly defended their half and happily returned home with three points in their bag.

    Sangat sedih.. Sabah gagal memanfaatkan bermain di gelanggang sendiri. Biarpun Sabah lebih menguasai 90minit permainan namun Sabah buntu untuk mendapatkan jaringan. Serangan LionsXII sekali sekali lebih berbahaya. tapi apapun all the best SABAH.. SABAH TATAP…

    kepada semua pemain sabah, diharap dapat mengambil iktibar drp kekalahan ketika menentang pasukan kebangsaan Singapura. Fokus kepada permainan dan jangan mengikut emosi. Permainan yang cantik akan jadi cacat jika berlaku pergaduhan dalam padang (atau luar padang). Satu lagi, adakah Zainizam sudah tidak diperlukan oleh coach? sedangkan tahun lalu beliau adalah pengerak berkualiti… nampaknya, Bobby adalah pilihan no. 1 coach….konfius……

    saya rasa para pemain perlu mempelbagaikan cara serangan. apply apa yg dibuat semasa latihan. saya lihat masa mereka menentang singapura, pemain tidak kreatif mencipta serangan. boleh guna cara bermain perlahan kemudian buat CA. Jangan terlalu guna kepantasan sahaja tapi guna IQ…
