Terengganu 1-1 Kelantan
Terengganu needed a win to ensure they stay in the lead in the MSL, but when the away side Kelantan took the lead in the 15th minute, it was going to be a tough night for them.
Thankfully their midfielder, Zairo Anuar knew all the tricks employed by the Red Warriors, who are also his former employers. So when he stepped up to take the freekick twenty minutes later, it was done with the confidence that it was going to sail into the back of the net. It duly went in past his former goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi, and it was 1-1.
He and Terengganu was unfortunate to not have found more goals to finish the game with a draw, but in the topsy-turvy competition that is the MSL, two points dropped is one point gained.
