Deltras v Persegres 1-1

This was one of those games you look at and wonder why the hell they chose to show it live. Deltras are 17th, Persegres, sometimes known as Gresik United, are 16th. Both teams struggle to average a goal a game.

As it happens the East Java derby turned out to be a pretty decent game. Plenty of scything tackles, plenty of diving, plenty of inexplicable refereeing decisions. Just not a lot of goals which both came in the first half with the home team taking the lead through Supandi. Gustavo Chena equalising.

Second half was mostly Gresik or Persegres or what ever you wanna call them. Then we got to injury time and Deltras will feel they could have, should have won.

First a neat turn in the box by their number 16, Qischil Gandrum, and a smart finish with the outside of the right boot only rippled the side netting. It was a difficult skill and he did well in the circumstances; it was certainly out of sorts with the rest of the game.

Moments later Ade Suhendra finally got the red card he had been so assiduously seeking second half, felling a marauding Deltras player while he was still sat on the deck. From the resulting free kick Budi Sudarsono's free kick was just inches over.

Honours even and not the result either team really wanted.

15 - Persiram 30 8 8 14 39-57 32
16 - Persegres 30 9 4 17 31-62 31
17 - Deltras 30 7 8 15 31-42 29
18 - PSAP 30 5 9 16 27-58 24
