After leading the Super League (MSL) standings for over four weeks, the Red Eagles were finally pipped to the top spot.

Pahang's persistence in chasing league leaders Kedah finally paid off, when they defeated PKNS FC 3-0 at the Darul Makmur Stadium on Tuesday to snatch the top spot, as Kedah's match was only played on Wednesday. Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) meanwhile edged Sarawak 2-0 at the Sarawak State Stadium, in the other match of the night. Read our write-up on the two matches here.
