Darul Takzim fire blanks; Selangor held in derby

Darul Takzim's inconsistent form in the Malaysia Super League continued on Friday as they were held to a 0-0 draw at FELDA United.

Although Harimau Selatan entered the game at the Petaling Jaya Stadium fourth on the table having lost just one of their opening seven matches, they have struggled to deliver on their promise following an off-season of heavy spending.

On Tuesday, they needed an 81st-minute equaliser from Norshahrul Idlan Talaha to salvage a 2-2 draw and avoid defeat against LIONSXII.

Eager to get back on the winning trail, Darul Takzim coach Fandi Ahmad decided to unleash his big guns by naming his star attacking duo of Norshahrul and Safee Sali, although ex-Spain international Dani Guiza missed out with an ankle problem.

However, they failed to find a way past the FELDA United defence and instead, it was the hosts who could have grabbed all three points near the end when Mohammed Ghaddar had a goal disallowed.

Selangor also failed to reach their potential, and also missed the chance to reclaim top spot, as they were held to a 0-0 draw by local rivals PKNS FC at the Shah Alam Stadium.

And to cap off a forgettable day in Malaysian football's top flight, the final match at the Tuanku Abdul Rahman Stadium failed to deliver much entertainment as Negri Sembilan and T-Team made it three goalless stalemates in a row.
