Indonesia Super League
Deltras v Sriwijaya 3-1 (Feri, Marcio Souza, Danilo Fernando; Keith Kayamba Gumbs)
Back to earth for the Silverware bagging Sriwijaya after they were left chasing newly promoted Deltras all afternoon. The home team took the lead when someone scored and Kayamba missed a golden opportunity to level the scores when he missed a pen.
Sriwijaya's big failing last season was as the back and given that former Semen Padang and Persela striker Marcio Souza got in between three defenders you have to say not a whole lot has changed. Danilo, looking much leaner than last season's pie muncher extraordinaire, scored a third from 20 odd yards to make it safe.
Kayamba got lucky a second time from the spot and Sriwijaya had the chances, chiefly Arif Suyono, but failed to convert. Oh, and there were a couple of last minute red cards, one each, to keep the journos busy.
Persisam v Arema 2-1 (Julio Lopes, Choi; Pierre Njanka)
Not the ideal start for the champions and things don't get any easier with an away game at Bontang at the weekend.
Persibo v PSM 0-1
100% start for Robert Alberts men after winning two games on the road. One nil to PSM!
Bontang v Persema 2-1
Persijap v Persiba 1-1
