Yadanarbon 2 Pahang 3: 10-man Tok Gajah survive Razman red card

Pahang survived the sending-off of Razman Roslan to claim a dramatic 3-2 AFC Cup win in Myanmar.

The 2014 FA Cup and Malaysia Cup double winners started the match in a spectacular fashion as they took a 2-0 lead through a Dickson Nwakaeme double within the first 12 minutes of the game.

Not daunted by the early setback, Yadanarbon pushed forward and finally managed to reduce the deficit right before half-time when Damion Stewart scored an own goal in the 40th minute.

After the break, the hosts continued their determined quest for an equaliser, which soon came their way when Razman was red-carded for his challenge on Yadanarbon's Shine Thuya in Pahang's penalty box in the 54th minute.

Ivorian midfielder Djedje Maximim Djawa converted from the spot to draw the game level.

Following the goal, the home side looked to be on course for a well-deserved point and, in fact, could’ve got all three points when they were awarded their second penalty of the day in the 70th minute.

However, Djawa was unable to retain his composure from his first penalty kick as he blasted his effort over the bar.

With less than two minutes remaining, substitute R. Gopinathan produced a low right-footed finish into the bottom-right corner of the net to win it for Pahang.
