Defending champion Selangor MPPJ out of Malaysia Cup

PETALING JAYA Sept 21 - Defending champion Selangor MPPJ's hopes of retaining the title were dashed after a 1-1 draw with Negeri Sembilan in a Group B Malaysia Cup match at the Petaling Jaya Stadium here Tuesday night.

With the draw MPPJ remain third in the group with four points from a win against Perak (1-0) and Tuesday's draw.

However, with only one more match remaining to decide the qualifiers for the quarter-final, MPPJ kissed their Malaysian Cup chances goodbye as Negeri Sembilan garnered seven points while Penang are sitting pretty at the top with 12 points.

MPPJ opened the score in the 29th minute when Croatian import Branezac Sasa blasted the ball home after deceiving the Negeri defence.

Though MPPJ piled on the pressure after taking the lead, the 1-0 score remained intact until half-time.

Negeri coach K. Devan replaced Mohd Farid Ideris with Mohd Fairuz Ezwan and the move paid dividends when the substitute scored the crucial equaliser in the 57th minute to revive their quarter-final hopes.

MPPJ suffered another blow when Abd Rauf Ahmad was given his marching orders by referee S. Thiruch in the 73rd minute.

But despite playing with 10-men, MPPJ launched raid after raid at the Negeri Sembilan end and in fact had the ball in the net just minutes before the end but Fabricio Rene Francheshi's goal was disallowed by the referee.

The referee's decision angered the 3,000 odd fans who started hurling abuses and water bottles into the field.

But fortunately there were no untoward incidents later.
