2015 MSL Team of the Week: Gameweek 15

FourFourTwo Malaysia picks the best performers from the latest gameweek of the 2015 Malaysian Super League!

  • Goalkeeper

Against former club Selangor, Farizal Marlias unfortunately let an indrect free-kick from yards away get past him, but the JDT goalkeeper hardly put a foot wrong and was constantly alert of other dangerous balls that came his way.

  • Defenders

Just like Farizal, S. Kunanlan did not disappoint either in his reunion with the Red Giants as his overlapping runs and dangerous crosses proved to be handful for his old club.

Fresh from returning after a one-match suspension, Jonathan McKain gave Kelantan's defence a much needed boost to cope with PDRM. Besides keeping the home team at bay, he scored a wonderful goal to help the Red Warriors get their first league win since April 25.

Vincent Bikana was back to his usual dominating form on Wednesday to subdue Sime Darby's frontline and help Terengganu keep their first clean sheet since the start of the season.

Hafiz Abu Sujad played a key role in the LionsXII's 2-1 win over Perak. Besides being in the right place to capitalise on a poor clearance by Thiago Junio and score the equaliser, he also cleared a Chad Souza header off the line in the dying minutes of the match to ensure that the Singaporeans got all three points.

  • Midfielders

Wan Zaharulnizam Zakaria, who set up McKain's volleyed finish, was lively all night long and made himself a difficult man to mark in the match against PDRM.

Pahang playmaker Hafiz Kamal impressed by contributing two assists in the Sarawak encounter, He could've easily got his name on the score sheet too if his free-kick in the 77th minute did not hit the post.

He did not score as many goals as Indra Putra against ATM, but Zah Rahan Krangar's constant forward bursts from midfield were pivotal for the Fighters to record a convincing 4-0 win.

Ashari Samsudin lived up to his 'Silent Killer' nickname as he pounced on a rebound to give Terengganu the lead against Sime Darby at the Selayang Stadium. He then piled more misery on the home side with another goal in the second half.

  • Forwards

Visibly livid with some of the decisions made by the referee, JDT striker Luciano Figueroa channeled his emotions into two goals and an assist to help JDT beat Selangor 3-1 at the Larkin Stadium.

The match between ATM and Felda United burst into life in the second half as Indra Putra Mahayuddin came off the bench to grab a hat-trick, becoming the first player to do so since LionsXII striker Sufian Anuar's similar feat against Pahang last year.
