With the victory, Mitra overtook Persipura Jayapura at the top of the table and now lead by a single point.
Meanwhile, Persepam Madura United bounced back from last week’s 3-1 loss to Mitra with a 2-0 triumph over Persiba Bantul at the Sultan Agung Stadium.
Persepam broke the deadlock in the 37th minute when Silvio Escobar successfully converted from the spot, and the Paraguayan struck once more in the 53rd minute after his side were awarded another penalty to seal the victory.
The win allowed Persepam to move one spot up to fifth on the table, while Persiba Bantul remain bottom of the table with just six points from 13 games to their name.
