Kelantan United missed the chance to undead lock after leading 2 times in the match but ended by tying with Negeri Sembilan FC with a score of 3-3 in the Liga Super Malaysia 2023 at Tuanku Abdul Rahman Stadium, Paroi.
After winning against Kuala Lumpur City and PDRM FC in the previous action, the brilliant achievements of Hobin Jang Hobin’s squad failed to continue.
Kelantan United, which has not won any wins, is seen to have started aggressively by pushing against the Negeri Sembilan camp.
The effort paid off when Jose Elmer Porteria scored Kelantan United’s first goal in the 15th minute.
The network was successful through a quick counter attack when the imported player wisely ran the ball into the penalty area and deceived two of the host’s defenses before rushing towards the NSFC goal killing Sikh Izhan Nazrel Sikh Azman.
The traveling troop network has stifled the enthusiasm and abilities of Negeri Sembilan who came down with the mission of getting a hat-trick win.
However, due to inactivity and failure to prevent Kelantan United’s quick movement, the NSFC goal missed for the second time through Mohd Syazwan Zainol’s net in the 33rd minute when he took advantage of Indra Putra Mahyuddin’s cross ball.
However, three minutes later the NSFC began to show their comeback when they received a penalty kick after being made a mistake by a visiting player in the penalty box.
The kick taken by the team captain, Mohd Zaquan Adha Abd Radzak, failed to be caught by Kelantan United goalkeeper, Ahmad Asyraf Omar before Shahrel Fikri Md Fauzi grabbed the ball and spread profusely into the goal of the visitors in the 36th minute.
NSFC had to wait in the 70th minute to get an equalizer through a beautiful goal by substitute Mohamad Hafiz Ramdan.
Indra Putra Mahyuddin then scored the visitors’ third goal via a penalty in the 79th minute while substitute Fileman Anyie Standly’s equalizer netted in injury time for both teams to settle for a point.
