Francis Doe again showed why he is rated so highly by Terengganu as he struck the only goal in a 1-0 win over bottom side Kuala Lumpur yesterday to move his team level with Kelantan at the top of the Super League standings.
The Liberian ran on to a goalkick by Sharbinee Allawee Ramli and squeezed between KL's two centrebacks before firing past goalkeeper Rozaimie Rohim in the 61st minute for his sixth goal of the season at a deserted Hang Jebat Stadium in Malacca.
After nine games played, Terengganu have 17 points, the same as Kelantan, who can go three points clear today when they play Negri Sembilan in Kota Baru in Bojan Hodak's first match in charge since Peter Butler's departure.
Michal Kubala also bagged his sixth goal of the season as his 80th-minute penalty earned Perak a 2-2 draw with PKNS, who had Zulhariz Mohd Noor sent off at the Petaling Jaya Stadium.
Helmi Remeli (20th) and Fauzan Dzulkifli (56th) struck for PKNS either side of Fazli Hazli Kadri's 42nd-minute equaliser for Perak while Frenchman Abdelfatah Safi's penalty three minutes from the end gave Kedah a 1-0 win over Selangor at the Darulaman Stadium after Baddrol Bakhtiar had missed from the spot earlier in the game.
Shahrudin Yakup capped Sabah's comeback from going 1-0 down to Johor FC in Kota Kinabalu with an 80th-minute winner after Rozaimi Abdul Rahman's 31st-minute goal cancelled Arthuro Bernhardt's opener three minutes earlier.
