The Football Association of Malaysia has awarded Johor Darul Takzim a 3-0 win due to T-Team’s failure to reappear for the second half of their FA Cup match
The match only lasted 45 minutes with JDT leading 2-1 at half time, when T-Team decided not to reappear in the second half due to alleged altercations in the tunnel as the players left the field.
Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin said that the Jawatankuasa Pertandingan Tempatan (JKPT) held a special meeting to discuss the matter and took into account reports from both teams, the referee and the match commissioner before making a decision on the outcome.
The latter two deemed that the match was able to continue and as a result, have decided to award JDT the victory.
As for the decision on the alleged altercations in the tunnel, there will be a follow-up investigation to be done. Should it be decided that there is a case to be pursued, the matter will be brought to the deliberation of the Disciplinary Board.
With this decision, JDT moves into the quarter-finals against Premier League side Kedah FA, with the two legs to be played on February 11 and 18
