Jakarta v Pelita Jaya

On a dreadful pitch you have to credit both teams at least for trying to play football. The middle third was a quagmire looking rather like the Baseball Ground mid 70's. Both sides were forced down the flanks and Ali Yudin of Jakarta adapted better than most. He controlled the ball well in difficult conditions and it was no surprise he got the firt goal after 35 minutes.

Pelita flew out the blocks second half and scored within 90 seconds. There number 21 ran rings round the Jakarta left back and his cross was effortlessly turned in by someone.

Bambang does look a quality player, he has a good touch and an eye for goal but his finishing is astray at the moment. He set up Ali Yudin in the second half and he could have finished the game but slid his shot wide. His goal had been the harder.

Missed Jakarta's winning goal. Had to pick the missus up and inbetween the security gate and our house they rather inconsiderately scored again.

2-1 again. 4 games, 4 2-1's!

Latest score in the big game from Sumatra is Medan v Sriwijaya 0-0.
