They did not play but Johor Darul Ta'zim looked like the real winners after Tuesday's night action in MD11 of the 2018 Malaysia Super League.

JDT will only play their match today but results from Tuesday's first three matches will have given them an almighty boost in their quest to land a fifth straight Super League title.

Nearest challengers suffered defeats on the road that could potentially give the Southern Tigers a massive eight points lead should they beat bottom place Negeri Sembilan tonight.

At Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium, Perak suffered a big blow towards their title hopes after they crashed to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Terengganu FC.

Tchetche Kipre was the toast of the home side as his double salvo on either side of half time was enough to condemn The Bos Gaurus to their third defeat of the campaign.

If there was any consolation for Perak fans, it would be the return to action of combative midfielder Brendan Gan, but even he was helpless in preventing the defeat.

Over at Darul Aman Stadium, third place Pahang was at the end of an inspired Kedah performance that saw the home side gaining a similar 2-0 victory.

Like in Kuala Terengganu, it was also a goal in each half with Baddrol Bakhtiar finding the opener just before the half time whistle and Liridon Krasniqi sealing the result late in the second half.

But if one is searching for goals galore, that happened in Kuala Lumpur's 5-1 win over Kelantan at KLFA Stadium in Cheras. The City boys picking up their fourth win of the campaign over a hapless Red Warriors.

Guilherme De Paula and Paulo Josue had put the home side in a comfortable 2-0 lead before Shafiq Shaharudin pulled one back for the visitors. However that was as good as it got for Fajer Ibrahim's boys.

De Paula found the back of the net again in the first half before two substitutes in Ashri Chuchu and Junior Aparecido completed the whitewash by adding a goal each in the second half.
