Sabah bounced back from two defeats by thumping KL SPA FC 4-1 in Likas. Underfire import striker Eamon Zayed finally broke his duck with his first competitive goal for the team by scoring the 3rd goal.
Even though it was only a few matches into the season, Zayed’s reputation as a feared striker in Iran came before him. Scoring 3 goals during the team’s friendly in China didn’t help at all.
Hopefully with some pressures being lifted up, the goals will come raining and directly help the team to gain promotion to the Superleague.
Sabah’s next game is also in Likas, against Pahang Kuantan FC on March 13th 2015.

Sabah were made to sweat by DRB Hicom as the Rhinos had to come back twice before getting all the three points in their home game opener in Likas yesterday.
Much to the shock of the home fans, the visitors opened the scoring as early as the second minute through a headed goal by Ivan Babic off from a free kick just outside the penalty box.
However Sabah skipper and crowd-favourite El Hadji Diouf equalized just four minutes later following a melee in front of the visitors goal. Just as the crowd finished celebrating the equalizer the visitors went in front again thanks to an own-goal by import Abdoulaye Faye who sliced the cross into his own net.

Sabah started the 2015 Malaysian Premier League with all 3 points with a win over Kuala Lumpur yesterday. Senegalese hot-shot and Sabah captain El Hadji Diouf kept his cool as he slotted a penalty just before half time to give the Rhinos an important 1-0 lead coming into the break.
Second goal came from local import Safuan Adli on the 61st minute in an attack initiated by hot-shot Diouf.
Even with the reported bad pitch condition the visitors dominated play even from the beginning in front of a small crowd of supporters, which include Senegalese in KL cheering for their national player Diouf.
Team Manager Datuk Seri TC Goh commented afterwards “It was a very good start to the season. Glad to see the commitment shown by the team.”

The news of the win will surely boost the expectations of the fans and with their next game to be played in Likas, the players can expect a better than average turn-out.
It is hope the players themselves will turn out on the pitch or else, the coming home games will see an almost empty Likas Stadium.
Sabah’s next opponent will be DRB Hicom to be played on February 13th starting at 8.15pm. See you there!
