Sport : PJ City’s all-local line-up share spoils with Perak FC
KUALA LUMPUR, March 7 — Petaling Jaya (PJ) City FC, fielding an all-local line-up, sneaked away with a point after holding Perak FC 0-0 in their opening Super League match at the Stadium Perak in Ipoh tonight.
The home team, fielding two Brazilians – Leandro Dos Santos and Raianderson da Costa Morais – as well the newly-naturalised Guilherme de Paula, failed to breach the defensive wall put up by ‘The Phoenix’.
Meanwhile, in Sarawak United FC (SUFC) grabbed all three points when they beat Kelantan United 2-0 in a Premier League match at Stadium Hang Jebat in Melaka.
SUFC went ahead through D. Christie Jayaseelan in the 12th minute off a cross from the left by Norshahrul Idlan Talaha.
SUFC doubled their lead in the 32nd minute when Nigerian Uche Agba slotted home from the penalty spot after Norshahrul was fouled in the box.
SUFC chose to make the stadium in Melaka their homeground this season after the Sarawak government decided to make it compulsory for any individuals entering the state to undergo mandatory 14-day quarantine in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, thus disrupting their league schedule.
