Persik v Persipura 2-2

Persik v Persipura 2-2 (Patricio Morales, Wawan; Yustinus Pae, Alberto Goncalves)

I don't think anybody will come away from this game particulalry happy. For both teams it was their fifth game of the season and for both teams it ended up being their fourth draw. And as Liverpool found out last season in England, draws don't win titles.

Jacksen F Tiago may however allow himself a wry smile as he looks back on this game. Of his five games, this was their fourth away from home.

He will be less pleased however at seeing his side twice take the lead only to be pegged back each time in what was great fun to watch,as you would expect from two such attack minded teams.

Persik had Jendri Pitoy in the champions goal marked down as a weak link and took every opportunity to pepper his goal with long range efforts, efforts the former Indonesian international preferred to punch.

And it was because of a Pitoy slip that Persipura had to make do with a single point. A speculative effort by 25 yards by the impressive Khusnul Yuli should have been a comfortable save for Pitoy but he failed to get a good contact and the ball dribbled through him. Wawan followed up off the post and it was honours shared.
