Sriwijaya 12 Points Clear

The Sriwijaya steamroller shows no sign of halting. A tricky game in Balikpapan saw them end the game with 10 men yet still take home the three points.

Two goals in four minutes from M Ridwan gave the visitors an early lead before the prolific Aldo Baretto pulled one back for the home team.

Keith Kayamba Gumbs restored the two goal cushion just shy of the half hour mark with a penalty, his 19th of the season and that's how it was at half time.

Achmad Jufriyanto was shown a second yellow early in the second half and Baretto scored his second of the afternoon on 76' but Sriwijaya held on for a crucial three points.

They now need just nine points from their remaining seven games to lift their second title in either four or five years.

They previously won the Liga Indonesia in 2007 but the season, marred by continual rest breaks, didn't finally finish until early 2008!

1 - Sriwijaya 27 20 4 3 58-24 64
2 - Persipura 27 15 7 5 43-28 52
