Patrick Da Silva's Brace Ends Sriwijaya's Unbeaten Run

Bhayangkara Surabaya United v Persib 4-1 (Thiago Furtuoso, Rudi Widodo, Otavio Autra; Syamsul Arif)
It all went wrong for Persib in a game when they would have fancied themselves to come out winners. Conceding four goals against an average BS United certainly wasn't what the doctor ordered and after being under pressure all season coach Dejan Antonic quit after the game. 
Persib were without a number of big name players like Vladimir Vujovic and recent signing Sergio van Dijk and Antonic dropped Kim Jeffrey Kurniawan after he had become a target for fans ire but they still boast a deep squad with the likes of Zulham Zamrun making an appearance after injury.
The statistics lie. Persib dominated the possession, had the most shots. But they lost 4-1! And to compound a poor day at the office they missed two penalties. The first, by Spanish striker Juan Belencoso hit the cross bar. The hapless striker, without a goal in six games, was instantly withdrawn and almost immediately his replacement Samsul was hitting the woodwork from 12 yards,
Antonic has gone. Belencoso may not have much longer. ISL title winning coach Djanur, thought to be on his way to DC United for a coaching stint, is rumoured to be the next man in the hot seat. These are uncertain times for Persib and unhappy times for the Bobotoh. This was their first defeat of the season but those four draws are proving costly as they sit 13th in the ISC, six points off top spot but looking nervously over their shoulders at the sides beneath them.
They should have enough quality to mount a revival but whoever steps in to the vacant seat left by Antonic will know he won't have long to turn things around. Djanur may have a little longer...

Perseru v Semen Padang 2-0 (Arthur Bonai, Boas Atururi)
Semen Padang's longest away day of the season, certainly the most complex and they return home empty handed as many teams will do from Serui. With joint top scorers at the start of the weekend Vendry Mofu and Marcel Sacremento in their ranks the team from West Sumatra would have hoped to have got on the score sheet at the very least but it was not to be. 
The problem for Semen Padang is for all their superiority in their own manor, three wins out of three, they are proving to be pants on the road, this game being their third straight loss as they build up the airmiles and coach Nil Maizar will be hoping he can address that uncomfortable stat over the coming weeks if his team is to continue challenging at the top of the table.
As for Perseru, they were without top scorer, indeed only scorer, Amadou Gakou but they seemed to manage ok, two second half goals seeing off the weary visitors. More good news for Perseru fans; they have gone 270 minutes without conceding a goal at home!

PSM v Arema 0-1 (Sunarto)
If Arema were grateful to Robert Alberts for helping them win the Indonesia Super League back in 2009/2010 they had a funny way of showing it. The Ditch coach, back in Makassar for a second spell, saw a much improved performance by his side but they still fell to an extremely confident Arema side who remain top of the standings after six rounds.
.PSM: David Ariyanto; Ardan Aras, Erik Setiawan, Hendra Wijaya, Boman Aime, Basri Lohy, Rizky Pellu, Rasyid Bakri (Samsul 61'), Alex da Silva, Ferdinand Sinaga (Rahmat 73'), Lamine Diarrassouba (Muchlis 88').
Subs: Dimas Galih Pratama; Valentino Telaubun, Achmad Sumardi, Syamsul Chaeruddin, M Rahmat, Maldini Pali, Muchlis Hadi Ning.
Arema: Kurnia Meiga; Ahmad Alfarizi, Hamka Hamzah, Ryuji Utomo, Beny Wahyudi, Ferry Aman Saragih (Juan Revi 75'), Raphael Maitimo, Srdjan Lopicic, Esteban Vizcarra, Ahmad Nufiandani (Sunarto 85'), Gustavo Giron (Gonzales 72').
Subs: I Made Wardhana; Junda Irawan, Juan Revi, Arif Suyono, Sunarto, Cristian Gonzales, Febri Setiadi Hamzah.
Gresik United v Sriwijaya 2-1 (Patrick da Silva 2; Hilton Moreira)
Are Sriwijaya the great entertainers of the ISC? It's not a question I wiill be putting to coach Widodo Cahyo Putro or his team after this loss but it is worth asking. Though this was their first loss of the season, and came after they had taken the lead in the first half, WCP will not be happy at the way Gresik asked questions of his defence and goalkeeper at will. 
I have been fulsome in my praise of Teja Paku Alam this season but Gresik must have felt he was a weak link as they pumped balls high into the box and in the well traveled do Santos they have a striker with the ability to make a nuisance of himself in the danger area and ultimately, put the ball away.
Perhaps the international break had interrupted Sriwijaya's momentum but while they showed glimpses of what they could do they were well pressed by the home side who pressed and harried all game and several players weren't at their best. With dos Santos and Oh Inkyun so impressive Gresik put in the kind of shift that left the large crowd wondering where the team had been the last few games. Following their 1-0 win at neighbouring Persela the team in yellow had drawn two and lost two games seeing them slide down the table. 
Rather like their Sumatran rivals Semen Padang, Sriwijaya are pretty bloody impressive at home but can't buy a win on their travels. And their next away game is against Persija who boast a 100% record of their home on their own manor.
Gresik United: Sandy Firmansyah; Daniel Junaedi (Kamri 79'), Riyandi Ramadhana, Romy Agustiawan, FX Yanuar (Rifqi 72'), Faris Ardiansyah, Oh Inkyun, Reza Mustofa (Eduardo 31'), Agus Indra Kurniawan, Ghozali Siregar, Patrick Da Silva.
Subs: Satria Tama; Muhammad Rifqi, Stevanus Bungaran, Yusuf Effendi, Muhamad Kamri, Hendri Satriadi, Eduardo Maceil.
Sriwijaya FC: Teja Paku Alam; Zalnando, Mauricio Leal, Achmad Jufriyanto, Fachruddin Wahyudi, Supardi, Ichsan Kurniawan, Firman Utina (Yohanis 62'), Muhammad Ridwan (Mushafry 77'), Alberto Goncalves, Hilton Moreira (Airlangga 87').
Subs: Yogi Triana; AA Ngurah Wahyu, Wildansyah, Yoo Hyun Koo, Yohanis Nabar, Talaohu Abdul Mushafry, Airlangga Sucipto.
