Player Ratings (1-10)

Farizal Marlias (6) – Was alert despite having not much to do the whole game. Quick off his blocks to smother Tchetche Kipre’s shot from close range in the second half.

Marcos Antonio (8.5) – A commanding presence as usual in central defence. Scored with a stunning header early on to give JDT the lead.

Aidil Zafuan (5) – Dragged J.Partiban down as the last man and received a direct red card in the second half. Never really complimented Marcos Antonio in defence.

Corbin-Ong (6.5) – His outrageous long throw-ins always gave Terengganu problems. Cleared Tchetche Kipre’s goalbound shot in the second half to keep the JDT goal intact.

Azrif Nasrulhaq (5.5) – Looked rusty having not featured in the first 11 for some time. But he worked hard to support his teammates upfront. Dragged a shot wide in the second half.

Hariss Harun (6) – Edged the midfield battle. Allowed Syamer Kutty to foray forward more often while he sat back and kept things neat deeper in his half.

Fernando Elizari (7) – Continues to excel after arriving at the club last month with his vision and passing range. His delivery found Marcos Antonio’s head for the first goal.
