Sabah is back on their miserable run of losing matches with a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Selangor, who confirmed their third place in the standings and qualify for the AFC Cup next season.
However there is still hope for Sabah to stay in the Superleague through the playoffs eventhough the team is second from bottom. This is due to the fact that LIONSXII is a “guest” team in the league and their position does not matter. That places Sabah on 12th place and will slug it out with Kedah, Sarawak and Pahang from the Premier League for the final slot in next year’s Super League.
Below are the goals from last night’s matches.
Sabah’s hopes of avenging the 6-3 defeat at the hands of Terengganu in the first round was only a dream after the visitor came out victors in the 1-3 defeat of Sabah.
The team management should now prepare the team on facing the playoff to see who remains in the Super League for next season.
Sabah’s mini revival under interim coach Andrew Majanggim took a halt when they went down 2-1 to Johor FC tonight. Without any recognised strikers in the line-up because of injuries to Zainizam Marjan and Jufri Omopor, it was a tall order for Sabah to return home with any points.
With the remaining 3 matches all against teams on the top half of the table, Sabah is surely caught in the relegation fight and will have to endure a playoff with 3 other teams to determine who will stay and who goes down with KL.
Match report of tonight’s matches will be published when they become available.
Kota Kinabalu: Sabah won a thriller at the Likas Stadium on Saturday when they beat Kuala Lumpur 4-2 in a Super League match. Sabah who were playing as an away match as their opponent who are without a home venue opted to play their home match here led 1-0 at half time.
The goal was scored by young right back Razid Gafar in the 19th minutes after he headed home a corner kick delivered by Shahrudin Yaakup.
