Persib v Persisam 2-0 (Christian Gonzales, Eka Ramdani) Images
Kosin Hathairantanakul's last game for Persib Bandung before returning to the quieter life with Chonburi in the Thai Premier League. While the sub text was about the Thai international there were still points at stake and Persisam turned in what must be one of their better away performances, certainly the best I've seen them yet it still wasn't enough.
Pipat looked good first half, new signing Choi Dong Soo impressed with a couple of good efforts and even Danilo Fernando did some running.
With three minutes on the clock and the game won sentiment for once ruled in Indonesian football as Kosin was replaced by new signing Markus Horison, allowing the Thai to receive his own personal standing ovation from the adoring fans who had been chanting his name for five minutes non stop.
Indonesia Premier League
Persikota v Gresik United 2-2 (Daniel Bikoni 2; Isman, David)
Not a bad game as it happens with plenty of chances at both ends on a real muddy pitch. The highlight was Bikoni's second goal which burst the back of the net. And when you consider the power with which he hit the bloody thing, or lack thereof, it was some achievement...unless of course you wanna be negative and suggest the net had more holes than the M25
Singapore League Cup
Geylang United v Young Lions 0-0 792 (Geylang win on pens)
