  • That's all from me tonight. For more updates on Malaysian Football, do follow @Goal_MY . You can also tweet me your thoughts @keeshsundaresan
  • And the full time whistle is blown here in Kota Bharu! Johor DT seize a massive, massive 2-1 win over Kelantan, courtesy of a late strike from Fazly Maznan.
  • 90' + 1'
    Johor DT are visibly trying to play this game out, they have secured what they came here for.
  • 89'
    Yellow Card Fitree Omar
  • 88'
    There you go. One mistake from the Kelantan defence led to that goal. So my hunch was right after all. Either way, there is still two minutes for Kelantan to save themselves from defeat
  • 87'
    Assist Luciano Figueroa
  • 87'
    Goal Fazly Mazlan
    GOAL! Fazly Maznan capitalizes on a defensive error to fire home and give Johor the lead!
  • 86'
    Predictably, fatigue is now slowly kicking into both teams. One mistake could really cost them
  • 85'
    SubstitutionMohamed Shawky Francis Forkey Doe
  • 82'
    SubstitutionAmirulhadi Zainal Fazly Mazlan
    Amirulhadi, who came on for Nurul Azwan on the hour's mark, is now brought off for Fazly. Clear signs of ineffectiveness
  • 80'
    10 minutes left, get going with your predictions folks. I just have a feeling that one team is going to nick it at the death. Don't know why, but I just have that feeling.
  • 77'
    What are your thoughts on this game? Feel free to tweet me at @keeshsundaresan
  • 75'
    Cesare Jimenez looks rather unsettled on the touchline, shouting instructions at his men. They really need to win this one. Then again, the sentiment echoes on the opposite bench as well.
  • 73'
    In case you haven't heard, Kelantan announced three new signings yesterday. One is already on the field (Fitri Omar). Brendan Gan will be available for next week's game, but Wan Zack is still some time away from action as he is still nursing an injury.
  • 71'
    SubstitutionNorshahrul Idlan Talaha Safee Sali
    Safee Sali is brought on for the ineffective Norshahrul
  • 69'
    Amri Yahya crosses from the right flank, but Norshahrul's header is deflected away. Amirulhadi fires a shot from the rebound, but even that attempt is successfully blocked by Obinnna Nwaneri
  • 68'
    Yellow Card Fakri Saarani
  • 65'
    Yellow Card Mohamed Shawky
  • 65'
    One name that has been impressive in terms of work rate is Fakri Saarani. The former Felda forward has huffed and puffed to create chances for the Red Warriors tonight.
  • 63'
    Substitution Nurul Azwan Roya Amirulhadi Zainal
    Amirulhadi is brought on to inject creativity into the Southern Tigers
  • 62'
    Piya tries his luck via a free kick attempt from outside the box, but the Johor defence was quick to clear it away
  • 61'
    Yellow Card Hariss Harun
  • 58'
    Figueroa drops deep to collect the ball yet again. Can't blame him though as the Johor midfield seems to be lacking creativity
  • 56'
    Ghaddar finds space on the left, and drives past Mahali, but Hariss does excellently to intercept possession
  • 54'
    Yellow Card Fadhli Shas
  • 52'
    Tengku Hasbullah has just left the bench to start his warm up. He could be coming on soon.
  • 49'
    Steve Darby's men looking determined thus far. This should be an excellent second half
  • 47'
    Teasing corner kick from Piya, but Izham did well to collect it
  • 46'
    And the second half kicks off!
  • 32'
    Assist Mahali Jasuli
  • Kelantan started well, but it has otherwise been a pretty even affair. Stay tuned with us for all the second half updates!
  • And the half time whistle is blown! Both sides head into the break with the scoreline being 1-1. Kelantan initially took the lead via Ghaddar, before Amri restored parity for the away side
  • 45' + 1'
    Wan Zaharulnizam fires a cannonball that goes way wide off target! Plenty of power in that attempt though
  • 45'
    Two additional minutes on the clock
  • 42'
    Inch-perfect corner kick from Piya, but Obinna was too aggressive against Izham Tarmizi. Free kick to Johor DT
  • 39'
    Another name that has been virtually invisible is Norshahrul. Totally marked out of the game
  • 38'
    We've not seen much from Mahali thus far, and it's a bit obvious with Johor DT really lacking support on the right flank. He seems to be a bit too deep as of now
  • 36'
    Shakir Shaari plays a through ball towards Nurul Azwan, but the latter was ruled out for offside. Smart run from Azwan though, almost exposed the Kelantan defence yet again
  • 32'
    Goal Amri Yahyah
    After performing admirably for 30 minutes, the Kelantan defence succumbs to a mishap, allowing Amri Yahya to equalize for the away side
  • 28'
    Johor DT are really finding it hard to break the Kelantan defence down. Obinna has been keeping Figueroa at bay
  • 26'
    Piya threads a defence-splitting pass for Wan Zaharulnizam, but Hariss expertly clears it away to safety
  • 23'
    Ghaddar looks incredibly dangerous. The Johor DT defence needs to keep a careful eye on him
  • 20'
    Speaking about confidence, Fakri Saarani attempts a shot from the middle of the field, though it predictably goes wide. But smart move though, considering that Izham was certainly way off his line.
  • 18'
    The goal has really injected confidence into the home side. They are really pushing Johor DT now
  • 16'
    Assist Fakri Saarani
  • 16'
    Goal Mohamad Ghaddar
    GOAL! Ghaddar puts Kelantan ahead after an excellent one-two with Fakri Saarani!
  • 15'
    Excellent build up play from Johor DT, as Shakir spreads it to Amri on the right flank. The veteran attacker goes to float a cross towards Figueroa inside the box, but the ball was too powerful for the Argentinean to collect
  • 13'
    Shawky unleashes a powerful free kick from distance, but it sails over the bar.
  • 10'
    Kelantan have been excellent in closing down the Johor players, forcing Figueroa and Norshahrul to really work hard and find space for themselves
  • 8'
    So it looks like Fakri has moved upfront to partner Ghaddar, while Fitri has taken over the left flank
  • 7'
    SubstitutionShakir Ali Fitree Omar
    Fitri Omar comes on to replace the injured Shakir Ali
  • 5'
    It looks like Fitri Omar is warming up, he could be coming on to replace Shakir Ali and thus make his debut for Kelantan
  • 3'
    Shakir seems to have picked up a knee injury after an awkward landing. Doesn't look good for him and Kelantan at the moment..
  • 2'
    It's full house here today, terrific atmosphere on display. With great atmospheres though, comes great responsibility. Kelantan will be expected to win this
  • 1'
    And it's kick off here in Kota Bharu!
