Persitara v Persisam 1-0
Persitara kept their recent good run going with this somewhat lucky win over a severley depleted Persisam.
For all their supposed riches newly promoted Persisam went into this game with just one recognised striker, Thai international Pipat Thongkaya, and Zaenal Arief on the bench. Also missing were Danilo Fernando and Ronald Fagundez.
So stretched were Aji Santoso's men that Hamka Hamza, a defender, was partnering Pipat and, um, to be brutally frank, it didn't work.
Pipat hit the post twice and forced the keeper into a couple of good saves but much of his good work went to waste and as the game wore on his frustration was plain for all to see.
Persitara won the game, Prince Bello Kabir getting the only goal from a free kick, his header going in the top corner, but it was a drab affair with the home side short on ideas in the middle as well.
