By admin

DBasia.news – MELAKA United (MU) just shared a point after a 3-3 lead in front of PKNS on Group B match at the Hang Jebat Stadium, Paya Rumput just recently.

MU squandered 3-0 at a dramatic PKNS resurgence in the last five minutes to miss the hope of home win.

Hang Tuah’s squad opened the goal as early as the seventh minute with import player from South Korea, Lee Chang Hoon getting a pass from Shahrul Azwari Ibrahim.

The visitor team have the opportunity to be ahead of the home team but the efficiency of goalkeeper and also team captain Khairul Fahmi Che Mat (Apek)  blocked every PKNS attempt.

A row of opportunity for PKNS, captain Mohd Safee Sali coming through in the 30th minute which slipped slightly above the goal poll while K Gurusamy’s shot a minute later and Mahalli Jasuli’s attempt in the 34th minute was saved by national goalkeeper.

Apek continued to block the opponent’s goal breaking into the MU fort on the 37th and 41th minute attempted by Rafeal Ramazotti and Bruno Oliveira.

Second-half continues with Ifedayo Olusegun’s goal onto the MU fort with a header after receiving a pass from Chang Hoon in the 71st minute, followed by their third goal by Chang Hoon eight minutes later.

But PKNS bounced back through Romel Oswaldo’s goal (m-87) Bruno Oliveira (m-88) and Ramazotti (m-90) to share one point.

The decision allowed PKNS to remain top of group B after two matches but will be challenged by FELDA who are facing PDRM at the same venue tomorrow.
