Sriwijaya go top, SLeague kicks off

Sriwijaya v Persik 2-1 (Ngon A Djam, Benben Berlian; Ronald Fagundez)

Tampines Rovers v Home United 0-0 3,317

Sriwijaya went top of the ISL last night as they just about squeezed by a Persik side who time and time again were saved by the heroics of keeper Achmad Kurniawan. Last season's double winners had Budi Sudarsono lining up against his old club and tellingly coach Rahmad Darmawan had the striker nicknamed Python out wide allowing him the opportunity to run at defenders.

From one such run his cross stood up and Benben powered home his header at the back stick, finally getting past AK and putting his side two points clear of Persija in the ISL.

At international level coach Benny Dollo stuck with Budi as a central striker and although he netted four goals Cambodia and Myanmar are not major players in world football.
