Pahang, JDT share spoils

June 27, 2015

It is status quo at the top of the Super League after table toppers Pahang and Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) drew 1-1 Kuantan.

Pahang and Johor Darul Takzim could not seperate themselves in the first half.

Matias Conti had a chance after 13 minutes thanks to a cross by R. Gopinathan but his glancing header went across  the goal.

Luciano Fiqueroa displayed his fine shooting ability six minutes later but his 19th minute effort rattled the crossbar after beating Khairul Azhan Khalid.

Azamuddin Akil thought he had made an assist  in the 25th minute  but cross went begging as two Pahang players could not connect for the lead.

Both teams stepped the paddle in the second half and the visitors took the lead first.

Amri Yahyah beat the offside trap and went around Khairul Azhan to tap in the lead in the 67th minute.

But Pahang refused to sit still and was rewarded just three minutes later after Dickson Nwakaeme was left with only a tap in infront of the goal as result of a scramble in the box from a corner.

The Nigerian almost gave Pahang all the points in the 77th minute after magically taking on three defenders but found his match in the  post.
