PSMS Hint At What Might Have Been
Eight wins in their last nine games, including a home double over Acehenese promotion challengers Persiraja and PSAP, have quietly put PSMS, one of the proudest clubs in Indonesia, on the outside of a gripping promotion race in the second tier Divisi Utama.
Their last two games are on the road, away to Persitara and Persikabo and you can bet the migrant PSMS fans will be flocking to both games in big numbers as the side that finished runners up in the old format Liga Indonesia in just 2007 try to regain top flight football.
Their last three home games have all been won 2-0 (v PS Bengkulu, Persiraja and PSAP) and just look at the attendances as the fans sense a return to the big time is on the cards
v PS Bengkulu 10,754
v Persiraja 15,121
v PSAP 17,733
They sit hot on the heels of Persiraja and PSAP with a game in hand. Win that and that would really put the Fighting Cocks among the pigeons!
