KL won a hard fought battle in Melaka with 10 men, Perak strolled to an easy home win while Terengganu exacted revenge against PKNP.

Kuala Lumpur produced a stirring come back at Hang Jebat Stadium to claim their first ever win on their Super League travels this season to beat Melaka United 4-2. In all the previous six away matches that KL have played in the league, they have lost every single one of them.

Melaka actually took the lead twice through Ifedayo Olusegun who grabbed a brace of headers in the first half with Indra Putra Mahayuddin's scoring one for the visitors as the home side went into the half time break with a 2-1 lead.

However the second half was all about KL as Zaquan Adha and Guilherme de Paula scored to give KL the lead for the first time in the match. Even with Zhafri Yahya sent off for his second bookable offence, KL continued to push on and were rewarded at the end when Indra scored his second of the night to seal all three points for the visitors.

At Perak Stadium in Ipoh, Perak picked up their first win in three matches after an easy 2-0 victory achieved over struggling Negeri Sembilan. The latter had been able to hold the former to a draw when they meet earlier in the week but couldn't replicate the same for the second match running.

The Bos Gaurus had plenty of chances to score in the first half but had to wait until the second period before breaking the deadlock. Brendan Gan reacting quickest inside the penalty box to slam home the opener in the 55th minute. With just six minutes left on the clock, Leandro dos Santos produced an outstanding free kick to kill off the match.

The result meant that Negeri stayed in 11th spot, just a point ahead of bottom placed Kelantan while Perak moved back up to second spot, but still a massive eight points behind league leaders, Johor Darul Ta'zim.

Over at Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium, Terengganu FC reversed the result they suffered against PKNP FC earlier in the week to win by the same scoreline of 2-1 on Saturday night. Do Dong-hyun's inclusion in the starting 11 was the dividing factor between the two teams.

Do crossed for Tchetche Kipre's opening goal in the 68th minute before the Korean's shot in the 71st minute was chested into the net by an alert Lee Tuck. PKNP did pull one back just seven minutes later as their own Korean Kim Sang-woo headed in from a corner kick routine but it turned out to be nothing more than scant consolation for the visitors.

The win push Terengganu to be levelled on points with Pahang and Kedah while PKNP are also in a group of their own, tied on 17 points with Selangor and Melaka.
