Despite holding Pahang to a 2-2 draw to halt the Elephants' seven-match winning streak in all competitions at the Darulmakmur Stadium, Selangor captain Razman Roslan was still disappointed that the Red Giants were not able to come away with three points from the match.

Although the homeside were the favourites going into the Super League match in front of the home crowd, the visitors went in front twice, before an equaliser two minutes from time by defender Faisal Rosli ended the match in a draw.

The Red Giants went in front as early as the sixth minute through Juliano Mineiro's goal, but Pahang captain Matthew Davies restored parity just four minutes later. Forkey Doe then restored the Red Giants' lead in the 66th minute, but Faisal rescued his side, and made amends for conceding the earlier Selangor penalty, by scoring an 88th minute equaliser.

When interviewed by match broadcaster TV9 after the match, the former Pahang captain admitted that he was frustrated by the match outcome.

"(I am) a little disappointed. However I have to thank my teammates for giving their 100% percent commitment.

"One point is very valuable as it's never easy to play here. Praise God," said the defender.

The 32-year old defender added that both Pahang's goals could have been avoided. 

"Our defence worked very hard tonight, Pahang's attack was very sharp, and we were forced into working hard and conceding two soft goals."

"...I'm disappointed, but at the same time also still satisfied (with the result)," he responded.

Despite his disappointment, Razman is confident that Selangor, currently in fourth place in the Super League, will finish this season in a top three position.

"Although Selangor were not on many people's radar before the start of this season, but now that we're almost at the halfway point in the league, we aim to finish in a top three position in the league," he revealed when asked by the interviewer.
