Live Commentary

  • And Yasir Hanapi's fluffed shot is the last move of the game, as the LionsXII make a deserved victory against T-Team to bring them top to the Malaysia Super League for the first time this season.
  • 90' + 4'
    Agu Casmir does well to deflect the ball off Bojan Petric, earning his team a corner in the process.
  • 90' + 3'
    A good save by Hyrulnizam, who goes down low to smother Faiz Subri's shot after Tengku Hasbullah crosses. The Jalan Besar stadium is roaring to support the LionsXII. Just 45 seconds left in injury time.
  • 90' + 1'
    We're into the first of four minutes of stoppage time.
  • 89'
    Yellow Card Firdaus Kasman
    Firdaus Kasman goes down somewhat too easily in the penalty box, and the referee makes the right decision in booking him.
  • 86'
    Penalty Goal Shahdan Sulaiman
    Shahdan goes where Shahril doesn't! He strokes the ball calmly, sending Iqbal Suhimi the wrong way - and all the way into the bottom corner of the goal.
  • 86'
    Substitution Mohd Badrul Hisani bin Abdul Rahman Tengku Hasbullah
    Badrul Hisani won't be able to continue - the T-Team player is replaced by Tengku Hasbullah.
  • 85'
    Yellow Card Norfazly Alias
    This time, a poor challenge in the penalty box is made by Norfazly, and the LionsXII gets the penalty.
  • 84'
    Agu makes the slightest of contact with his head to a great cross by Irwan Shah. Yet another opportunity wasted.
  • 82'
    Injury Mohd Badrul Hisani bin Abdul Rahman
    Yet another player who's injured - Badrul Hisani trips and stays on the ground, and the stretcher team has to come out and take him off the pitch for treatment.
  • 80'
    Shahril Faizal is taking no chances - he clears an incoming cross by Sevki Sha'ban. The resulting corner is well cleared by Bojan Petric, albeit only for another corner.
  • 78'
    Substitution Wan Khairul Faiz bin Kamaruddin Hasbullah Awang
  • 78'
    Injury Wan Khairul Faiz bin Kamaruddin
    Wan Khairul is the latest casualty to be stretchered off.
  • 76'
    Another fantastic ball - he's done several now - by Shahdan Sulaiman. The cross meets Safuwan, but he fails to capitalise on the opportunity.
  • 75'
    Substitution Fadzli Saari Wan Mohamad Aliff bin Wan Jasmi
  • 72'
    Injury Fadzli Saari
    Fadzly Saari is down and is stretchered off.
  • 71'
    Substitution Shahril Ishak Yasir Hanapi
    Shahril Ishak comes on to be replaced by Yasir Hanapi - Isa Halim takes the captain's armband.
  • 70'
    Kasman shoots after a pass from Agu, who did well to create space for himself, but only puts it wide.
  • 69'
    Wasteful cross by Irwan Shah from the left flank. It seems that Shahril Ishak is now playing on the right instead of the middle, with subsitute Firdaus Kasman taking that position.
  • 67'
    Substitution Safirul Sulaiman Firdaus Kasman
  • 65'
    Yellow Card Shakir Hamzah
    Shakir Hamzah is booked for an earlier incident.
  • 65'
    Yellow Card Mohd Dzaiddin bin Zainudin
  • 63'
    Safuwan's shot just outside the penalty box is deflected by defender Bojan Petric.
  • 61'
    It is the second penalty that Shahril has missed this season - he missed another penalty in the game against Felda United.
  • 60'
    Missed Penalty Shahril Ishak
    Shahril Ishak thought he would have gotten an easier way to get on the scoresheet, but Iqbal Suhimi guesses correctly, diving low to the right to save his rather weak shot.
  • 60'
    Yellow Card Faiz Subri
    And this time Faiz is booked for dissent.
  • 59'
    ... Although replays show that it was Madhu, not Dzaiddin, that should have been penalised. Faiz Subri argues with the referee together with several T-Team players.
  • 58'
    And a penalty has been awarded to the LionsXII! Madhu Mohana was adjudged to have been tripped by Mohd Dzaiddin. Dzaiddin looks like he was injured by the challenge.
  • 56'
    The momentum and confidence that the LionsXII had over the last 55 minutes has all but evaporated, it seems.
  • 53'
    Goal Zairo Anuar
    And Zairo Anuar puts his team level! Hyrulnizam Juma'at is caught stranded after a left flank cross by Badrul Hisani, and before he manages to run back to goal, Zairo shoots past him.
  • 50'
    Goal Shahril Ishak
    And this time, the LionsXII do find the breakthrough! Shahril Ishak gets on the end of a pinpoint pass from Shahdan Sulaiman - and places the ball into the net, on its far side.
  • 48'
    Agu Casmir passes down the right flank to Irwan Shah, who should have made a better cross to Shahdan in the penalty box.
  • 46'
    Welcome back to the game!
  • And the referee blows for half-time. The LionsXII may have been the better side in the first half, but it is T-Team that finished injury time the stronger side, with several crosses that threatened in the penalty box.
  • 45' + 2'
    Fadzly Saari makes a great header in the penalty box but it goes wide after a good cross from Wan Khairul.
  • 45' + 1'
    Yellow Card Madhu Mohana
    Madhu Mohana is booked although the referee may have been stricter than usual on this occasion.
  • 45' + 1'
    A clearance header by Safirul Sulaiman ends up going out for a T-Team corner.
  • 45'
    There will be four minutes of additional time.
  • 43'
    A glorious opportunity spurned by Shahril Ishak, who beats the offside trap after Isa sets him free.
  • 40'
    A good interception by Sevki Sha'ban after Dzaiddin tries to find Faiz Subri.
  • 37'
    T-Team is playing increasingly deeper as the LionsXII surge forward to try to break the deadlock.
  • 35'
    Shakir Hamzah heads brilliantly but the T-Team defence manages to keep it out for a corner.
  • 34'
    Another corner for the LionsXII, after Agu Casmir is dispossessed.
  • 34'
    Wan Khairul pulls down Shahdan Sulaiman, and he takes the free kick from outside the penalty box - great technique, but Iqbal judges rightly and the ball ends up safely in his hands.
  • 32'
    Shakir Hamzah's header from the corner hits the ground rather than the back of the net, and bounces away harmlessly.
  • 30'
    A perfect through pass by Agu Casmir makes it to Irwan Shah, who then side-passes it to Shahril Ishak - he might have done better to have made his shot earlier though. The ball is saved by the legs of Iqbal for a corner.
  • 28'
    Madhu Mohana's cross from a goalmouth scramble is caught safely by Iqbal Suhimi.
  • 27'
    Injury Iqbal Suhaimi
    Shakir Hamzah gets on the end of a corner and Agu Casmir attempts to flick the ball in, but catches T-Team keeper Iqbal instead. The physio comes on - but Iqbal is fit enough to continue.
  • 25'
    Agu Casmir makes a good run down the right flank but is stopped successfully by Dzaiddin, who puts the ball out for a throw.
  • 24'
    Another decision goes against Shahril Ishak, this time being called for offside after Safuwan passes. The Jalan Besar faithful are furious, but replays show that the decision is right.
  • 21'
    Referee calls for a goal-kick after Shahril Ishak is adjudged to have brought the ball beyond the T-Team by-line.
  • 20'
    Another fantastic cross from the middle of the park to the right flank by Shahdan Sulaiman, but the subsequent cross into the penalty box by Irwan Shah is wasteful.
  • 18'
    Another shot by Faiz Subri, this time from outside the penalty box - but he'll have to do much better than that if he wants to score from that distance.
  • 16'
    Substitution Sufian Anuar Agu Casmir
    Substitution for the LionsXII as Agu comes on to replace the injured Sufian Anuar.
  • 15'
    Dzaiddin makes a risky high challenge on Shakir Hamzah, and is penalised although the referee keeps his cards to his pocket on this occasion.
  • 14'
    Faiz Subri makes an excellent run after a decent exchange with Fadzly Saari, who then passes to Dzaiddin, who makes a shot that Hyrulnizam does well to push out for a corner.
  • 13'
    Shahdan crosses brilliantly into the path of Sufian Anuar, but loses his balance - he needs the physio on. It could be a recurrence of his old injury.
  • 12'
    Faiz Subri attempts a speculative shot on LionsXII goalkeeper Hyrulnizam, who doesn't make the most convincing catch - although it does eventually end up in his hands.
  • 11'
    Isa Halim places a nice through ball that puts the T-Team defence in no-man's land. Unfortunately, it is also too quick for Sufian Anuar.
  • 9'
    A daring push-away by T-Team goalkeeper Iqbal Suhimi after Shahdan attempts a long cross into the penalty box to Shahril Ishak. He pushes the ball just beyond Shahril's reach and subsequently catches the ball.
  • 6'
    Corner taken by T-Team player Mohd Dzaiddin. Fadzly Saari and Safuwan Baharudin both reach for the ball but collide against each other. But both of them are fit enough to continue after the physios come on as a precaution.
  • 1'
    We're yet to get to the first minute but Shahdan Sulaiman has already had a warning shot blocked by the T-Team defence.
  • 1'
    And this time there's the kick-off!
  • And we're underway....? Looks like there was a false kick-off from T-Team.
  • The match will get under way shortly. The LionsXII and T-Team players have emerged from the tunnel with referee Nazmi Nasarudin and the rest of the match officials.
  • The scorer for T-Team in the previous match against Kedah, Azrul Hazwan, is on the bench.
  • All eyes will be on LionsXII captain and midfielder Shahril Ishak, who starts for the first time after returning from injury. Both home and away teams will be looking to bounce back after disappointing exits from the Malaysia FA Cup.
  • Welcome to our live play-by-play coverage of LionsXII against T-Team in the Malaysia Super League. Hariss Harun is suspended, but at least in this game LionsXII coach V. Sundramoorthy is able to fill up his bench with seven substitutes. Kick-off is at 7.45pm Singapore time.
