Sarawak 0-2 Kedah: Sweet revenge for the Canaries
Just days after losing at home to the Crocs, Kedah reclaim lost pride in Kuching
By Cyril Dason
Kedah got their revenge over an under-performing Sarawak side when they won by two goals in Kuching.
The game got off cautiously with Kedah being the more dominant side as they attacked the Sarawak goal mouth with three corners in the first ten minutes.
Sarawak failed to gain any proper chance in the first-half as they showed poor passing and crossing through the first-half. The home team also failed to make any proper shots on goal with Joel Epalle's bicycle kick being the only highlight of the rather drab first period of play.
The start of the second-half saw the Crocs squandering even more passes as they kept giving away possession to the visiting team.
Kedah took full advantage of Sarawak's poor passing as they marshalled more attacks in search for a goal.
Their efforts were aptly rewarded when new Croatian signing Vedran Gerc thundered in a volley to put the Canaries ahead.
Sarawak again gave away possession cheaply minutes later as they allowed Gerc to dribble his way past his marker to thunder in Kedah's second goal.
Confident of a win, Wan Jamak Hassan substituted Gerc from the field. Despite that, Kedah still looked the more dangerous side as Sarawak's midfield crumbled to pieces.
Wan Tarmizi finally ended Sarawak's miserable night by blowing the final whistle, giving the Canaries a deserved win.
