Football's Fickle Fates

People call football fans fickle.

Last week we saw Greg Nwoklo, Pelita Jaya striker, spitting the dummy with the ref after his team had conceded a controversial , late goal away to Arema. His team lost 3-2.

This week he was protecting the ref after his team, and him, were the beneficiaries of a late, controversial goal in the 3-2 win over ISL champions Persipura.

To paraphrase a popular whine from coaches and players; all we ask for is consistency!

Two goals from Malaysian international Safee Sali helped Pelita Jaya come from behind after Zah Rahan had given Persipura the lead in front of 7,654 at the Singaperbangsa Stadium.

The defeat leaves Persipura trailing leaders Sriwijaya on goal difference but they have played two games more.

1 - Sriwijaya 21 15 3 3 44-16 48
2 - Persipura 23 14 6 3 40-24 48

In yesterday's games, Persiba continued their recent fine form with a 3-1 win over PSMS to move up to a point behind Persiwa. The visitors had taken the lead through Nastje Ceh, great name, but Matsunaga and Kenji Adichihara with a pair secured the win for the home team.

You may remember last season a chap named Osas Marvellous scored about 3,000 goals for PSAP in Divisi Utama. He is proving to be somewhat less prolific this campaign after his move to Medan
