Sriwijaya Enjoy Point

Teams don't expect much from the long flight east to Papua so ISL leaders Sriwijaya will be feeling pretty pleased with themselves tonight. They drew 2-2 with Persidafon on a weekend when Persipura suprisingly lost at home.

Sriwijaya have been in impressive form all season and went into this game unbeaten in their previous 12 games. Thierry Gathussi's late equaliser kept that fine run going after Sriwijaya had twice come from behind.

Yohanes Pahabol gave the home team the lead on 16 minutes but the ever reliable, and leading contender for Jakarta Casual Player of the Year, Keith Kayamba, levelled the scores early in the second half.

Pahabol made it 2-1 and that's how it looked like it would end until Gathussi's late equaliser.

A look at the league table shows how crucial this result, and Persipura's defeat, was:

1 - Sriwijaya 23 16 4 3 49-19 52
2 - Persipura 24 14 6 4 40-25 48
