Papuan Duo Do Business Away From Home
I think it's so ironic how a team that is famous for giving nothing away at home gets upset when decisions don't go their way in away games. When a nailed on pen isn't given to their opponents. Yet when the same happens to them in an away game they spit the dummy. The word shame doesn't seem to exist.
Persiwa defeated Persija 2-1 in Yoghakarta, nominally a Persija home game, yet their fans got peeved cos the ref gave a penalty to Persija and invaded the pitch.
Healthy crowd mind. Over 12,000 which is more than the team that usually uses the stadium, PSIM, get. And back to back defeats for Persija.
In the other ISL game Persipura were held 2-2 awayto PSPS. It was your typical ding dong affair, Titus John giving the champions the lead, Nguenheu equalising, then giving the home team the lead then Titus pulling level. All goals in 30 first half minutes in front of nearly 15,000.
Results leave the Papua teams in the top two positions, Persipura a point clear.
