thumbnail Hello,

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

Matchday six of the Malaysia Super League saw Selangor overcome an out of sorts Kelantan in a highly pulsating encounter at the Shah Alam Stadium.

The powerful in-form striker, Francis Forkey Doe got the ball rolling for the Red Giants with a terrific header into the top corner of the net.  The Liberian forward outmuscled the Kelantan defence on numerous occasions, and has proven to be a key factor behind Selangor's league position.

Terengganu meanwhile, secured their first win of the season with Effa Owona always at the centre of their attacking moves. The Ghanaian got the goal his play deserved with a fine run and composed finish to secure a valuable win. He was ably supported by national winger, Ashaari Shamsuddin who tormented the Perak full-backs on the flanks with his nifty footwork.

Lebanese hitman, Mohamed Ghaddar, completes our three pronged attack after he brought his team level with a composed top corner finish.  But despite his willingness and hard work, his goal-shy team fell to yet another defeat.

Our midfield is led by LionsXII debutant Faris Ramli who showed no signs of nerves on his debut as he tormented the Pahang defence down both flanks, impressing with his skill and trickery throughout. The youngster showed good composure to score at the second attempt after his initial effort was blocked to give his team the lead and set them on their way to a 3-0 victory.

Darul Takzim's nippy winger Azwan Roya completes our midfield trio.  He was involved in most of his team's attacking intent, and tried to engineer goalscoring chances at every opportunity. The former Kelantan man was full of running and assisted the winning goal by Dani Guiza.

Our defensive line meanwhile is marshaled by hard tackling Ramez Dayoub. The Lebanese defender was on top of his game in the high profile match against defending champions, Kelantan. He made the right tackles and was a defensive rock at the back. Kelantan tried changing their forwards, but nothing was going to penetrate Dayoub on the night. Ultimately, he scored Selangor's winning goal of the night with a terrific header
