Sriwijaya to win 1-0

The Governor of South Sumatra interupted a vital round at a prestigious Palembang golf course to tell the world Sriwijaya would win the Copa final against Persipura 1-0.

Sriwijaya's support numbered about 1,000 for last week's semi final with Pelita Jaya but today many more are expected to make the long journey over land and sea.

Victory today would be Sriwijaya's first major honour.

They started life in 1976 when they were based in East Jakarta and were known as Persijatim. They relocated for a while to the Central Java city of Solo where they were known as Solo before upping sticks to Palembang in 2004.

Coach Rahmad Darmawan is in his first season with the club having joined from Persija after failing to lead the Jakarta to glory in 2006. In 2005 he won the Liga with Persipura.
