PSPS slip, Persisam take over

In the Indonesia Premier League western division PSPS Pekanbaru were beaten by play off challengers Persikab the other day in Soreang. April Hadi had given the visitors an early lead but Egi Nirwan equalised with a penalty half way through the first half before Alejandro Tobar gave the home side a late winner.

Persisam took full advantage edging Persikad 1-0 thanks to Aldo Baretto's 77th minute winner. Mitra Kukar stayed 3rd after coming from behind to defeat Persikota at Benteng Stadium. Zamroney had given the struggling Tangerang side the lead but second half goals from former Persema striker Franco Hita (50' & 70') and Germain Baitono made it 3-1 for the visitors. Zamroney scored a second with a minute left to set up an exciting climax but Mitra Kukar held on.

1 - Persisam 25 15 6 4 48-23 51
2 - PSPS 25 15 5 5 42-23 50
3 - Mitra Kukar 25 15 1 9 30-25 46
4 - Persikab 26 13 5 8 41-31 44
5 - Persikabo 26 11 10 5 41-27 43

Five clubs battling it out for the Play Offs with the top 4 in the Eastern Division. This Saturday sees Persikabo host PSPS, Mitra Kukar take on Persikad in Depok and Persisam going to the Benteng Stadium to chance their arm against Persikota. Persikab are scheduled to play Persih but Pelita Jaya are also taking on Persija at the same stadium. A double header or a reschedule?
