Persela Implosion Opens Play Off Door For PSM

What to say about Persela in recent weeks. A team that has become a byword for consistency over the years have folded as the race for play off places increases. At one time considered a dead cert for a top four place in the eastern group, they are now tied in a three horse race with PSM and Persiba.

After an explosive run of six wins in seven games which saw them topping the table at one stage, they have been in freefall, winning just one in the last nine,and even that came against hapless Persiba Bantul.

Today sees PSM travel to Samarinda to play Pusam. Win that and the four legged feline will be right among the pigeons, putting all the pressure on Persela for their game tomorrow against the relentlessly efficient Persipura at their Surajaya Stadium.

Persiba Balikpapan may have the same number of points as PSM and Persela but they have played a game more and their goal difference is weaker

Everything will be decided on Friday. Persela will be confident as they host Perseru while PSM face a tricky trip to Mitra Kukar. In fact, if results go their way, it could be Persiba who are feeling the most confident ahead of the final round of fixtures; they travel to their namesake Persiba Bantul; a team that has lost their last eight games!

Persipura, Persebaya and Mitra Kukar are assured of their play off spots in the eastern division. Who will join them?
