thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com picks out the star performers in the Malaysian top flight after another thrilling week of action

Ashaari "Silent Killer" Shamsuddin capped another fine individual performance this week, scoring a brace against ATM, where he also netted the last gasp winner. The forward has really stepped up to the mark this season and now has the goals to boot alongside his fancy footwork.

Kelantan's forgotten man, Keita Mandjou meanwhile has put his early season form behind him with three goals in two matches to remind his employers that he is still an extremely capable forward. The powerful forward is always in the thick of the action for his team and seems to be growing in confidence with two headed goals and a classy finish against Terengganu.

Evergreen Marlon James completes the attacking trio with two goals, one assist and was awarded a penalty all in the space of two matches.  Malaysian defences are seemingly finding it hard to cope with the power, pace and quick feet of the Vincentian.

Our midfield is led by Darul Takzim's Italian star, Simone Del Nero. He finally got off the mark for his team and looks promising in the heart of midfield, where he is beginning to develop an understanding with Nurul Azwan. He was one of the Southern Tigers better performers against Felda as well.

LionsXII's defensive rock, Baihakki Khaizan meanwhile marshals our backline. There's nothing much to be said about Baihakki anymore as he is such a composed defender at the heart of LionsXII's defence. He led the defence impeccably in coping with the boisterous Johor atmosphere as well as facing up against the likes of Guiza and Norshahrul, he also scored LionsXII's second goal with a well-executed low header.

Nigerian Obinna Nwaweri partners the Singaporean at the heart of the defence as he successfully thwarted the threat posed by Terengganu's Effa Owona in midweek and was a pivotal aspect of a defence that kept a clean sheet on the day. A few days later, he was again at his usual best against the likes of Fauzi Roslan and Azamuddin Akil of Pahang.
