Two in a row for Kelantan; LIONSXII down Selangor

Kelantan maintained their perfect start to the 2014 Malaysia Super League campaign on Saturday after claiming a 1-0 win at Sarawak.

After opening the season with victory over Sime Darby last weekend, the Red Warriors looked set to be denied as Sarawak kept them at bay throughout the 90 minutes.

But in the first minute of injury-time, Badhri Radzi threaded a lovely pass through to Mohammed Ghaddar, who held off Ronny Harun well before crossing to leave Francis Forkey Doe with a simple tap-in for the winner.

Defending champions LIONSXII got their first points of the campaign after a last-gasp winner from Khairul Amri helped them beat Selangor 2-1 at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

The hosts had taken the lead a minute before the break when Shakir Hamzah rose unmarked at the far post to head home, but a draw looked on the cards after Fitri Shazwan Raduwan pulled Selangor level in the 58th minute with a fine header into the far corner.

However, in the fifth minute of injury-time, Shahfiq Ghani whipped in a delightful corner onto the head of Amri, who sent a bullet header past a hapless Farizal Marlias to hand the LIONSXII all three points.

Big-spending Johor Darul Ta’zim were left stunned at the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium as they were beaten 1-0 by T-Team.

The only goal of the game came in the 71st minute when Fabio Flor de Azevedo reacted quickest to a loose ball to head home from two yards out.

On Friday, PKNS FC also got on the board with a 1-0 win over ATM after Patrick Ronaldinho Wleh raced through and coolly slotted into the bottom corner to grab a 72nd-minute winner at the Shah Alam Stadium.

Elsewhere, Eliel da Cruz Guardiano headed home a minute from time to help Perak beat Terengganu 1-0, while Sime Darby recorded a 1-0 victory over Pahang thanks to Fahrul Razi Kamaruddin’s 50th-minute strike.
