Goal feast in Malaysian FA Cup

Terengganu v Negeri Sembilan 1-0
KL v Felda United 2-5
Proton v Melaka 3-2
Kedah v Sarawak 3-0
Pahang v KL Plus 0-0
Perak v Selangor 4-4
PDRM v Sabah 2-1

Perak coach Steve Darby probably wants to line his defence up against a wall and shoot the whole bloody lot of them. Days after shipping six goals at home to a rampant SAF in the AFC Perak fans were treated to another goal feast in Ipoh last night in the second round forst leg of the FA Cup as their side hit four goals in 16 minutes early in the second half with Kandasamy leading the way with a six minute hat trick.

It as the other end that would have had the scouse manager screaming though as his team saw visiting Selangor race to a 2-0 lead in the first half lead. Azhar pulled one back for Perak early in the second half but then two more goals for Selangor in two minutes, including one from Frank Seator, ex Persija, Sriwijaya, PSMS and Persis striker, put the visitors 4-1 up with 30 minutes remaining. Up stepped Kandasamy and his heroics but Perak won't be looking forward to the secon leg next Thursday. Especially as they play leaders Kedah on Monday in a busy schedule.

Entertainment or results? That old conumdrum, for me, and I think most fans, the important thing is always the result. Despite seeing 15 goals in two games I don't think Perak fans will be doing cartwheels in Ipoh at the moment.

Elsewhere Persik striker, now on loan at PDRM, Budi Sudarsono, levelled for the Police side in their tie at home to Sabah after Scott had given the Borneo side a 30th minute lead. Amiruddin got the winner for PDRM on 62 minutes.

Another quick fire hat trick by Fabio Alexander set Felda United on the way to an impressive 5-2 victory at Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia's leading scorer, Marlon Alex James, had to wait till the 90th minute before getting his obligatory goal against Sarawak but it was just the icing in the cake as Kedah won 3-0 against the side from Borneo.

Second leg next Thursday
