Sluggish PFA lose in Pandan derby

PFA suffered defeat as they were beaten 3-2 by MPK Pandan at Padang Kecil on Sunday afternoon. The team news saw two table-topper strikers granted a first start together while Najib and David made up the midfield.

Then to the football, PFA started the game dully and looked inactive, slow-moving, lack of energy and enthusiasm. Just 10 minutes had passed, Daniel sloppily gave the ball away when he tried to find David, led to the opening goal of MPK Pandan. The midfielder blasted a stunning shot outside the box past beyond Gigz gave the opposition off to a flyer.

As the game went on, PFA started to get into the rhythm and were up against it. The equalizer goal finally arrived after a quick throw-in on the flank finds Daniel through and he made a pin-point pass allowing David to steam through on goal and finish to make the scoreline 1-1. Daniel then can breathe a sigh of relief of the assist after his sloppy mistake earlier!

PFA then had the most possession after the equalizer, passing the ball well and seemed the more likely to get the second goal. Najib were denied by the woodwork after Daniel laid the ball neatly for him to blast a low, hard shot from a long range hitting the frame of the goal. Had it gone in, it would have been a goal of the year for him. The game then ended 1-1 at the break.

The second period starts with a host of changes and once again PFA caught napping as MPK Pandan scored from an unlikely source, failure to close down the player, PFA Pin scored from a long range (again) past Gigz to take the lead. Next, PFA then bounced back when Nameng was sent clear by a lovely through ball by Rushdi and he fired past into the net.

The game looked to be heading for a draw as the game nearing to the end, PFA scrappy defending at the back cost the game after MPK Pandan managed to sneak in the winner thus the day ended in disappointment for the Pandan’er in purple. Final score 3-2 to MPK Pandan. Do not forget to catch up the futsal team draw tomorrow PFA!
