  • 76'
    For some reason, this match reminds me of the clash between Colombia and Japan last night. The Colombians sat deep in the second half and were devastating on the counter. The Japanese created a flurry of chances but lacked conviction on the final third. Same pattern here in Kuching
  • 75'
    Since going ahead, Johor DT have slowed their tempo down. They are sitting deep in their half, happy to push on the counter
  • 73'
    Chanturu's pace has been causing a lot of trouble for Johor DT today. But they haven't been able to produce on the final third though

  • 54'
    Joseph Kalang has been getting into some real good positions today, but his final ball has lacked quality
  • 52'
    Ashri Chuchu gets the ball inside the box, but he fluffs his first touch, allowing the Johor DT goalie to save it
  • 49'
    Johor have certainly upped the tempo, they are systematically pushing forward in search of the opening goal now
  • 46'
    And the second half resumes!
  • And it's half time here in Kuching. Stay tuned with us for all the second half updates!
  • 44'
    We are just moments away from the half time whistle, and both sides look content with the idea of going into the break with the score remaining 0-0
  • 40'
    Free kick for Sarawak, but Ronny's free kick bounces off the wall. I must say that the general set-piece quality in this game has been poor
  • 36'
    Rashid Aya crosses into the box, but Fadhli Shas clears it away to safety. Johor DT really look subdued today, for some reason
  • 33'
    Chanturu sprints down the flank, and beats Daudsu using his pace, before delivering a cross into the box. But yet again, Ryan Griffiths was not in the right spot to make connection with it
  • 30'
    Shakir tries to play a through ball for Figueroa, but Ramesh Lai intercepts it brilliantly
  • 27'
    We've yet to see much from Jorge Diaz. We know what he's capable of, but kudos to the Sarawak defence for keeping at bay thus far
  • 24'
    The tempo is relatively balanced here in Kuching, both sides have had their fair share of chances. One goal will spur this game into life, though
  • 22'
    So apparently Paulo Rangel has scored to give Selangor the lead against PKNS. Johor DT will need to up the tempo now. Title is at stake
  • 18'
    Rashid Aya moves past the byline, and crosses into the box. But Ryan Griffith could not connect with it
  • 16'
    CHANCE! Nazrin collects the ball from Diaz, and fires from the edge of the box, but it hits the side netting!
  • 15'
    Diaz finds space on the edge of the box, and tries his luck, but the shot goes wide off target
  • 13'
    Nazrin dashes past two defenders before making his way into the box, but the ball is cleared away to safety by Ronny Harun
  • 11'
    Johor still trying to assert themselves in the game, Sarawak are doing a relatively solid job in containing the away side
  • 7'
    Chanturu is another player who looks extremely determined to get on the ball tonight. He has made a couple of probing runs down the flanks already
