Safi stars in Sabah win

Highlights Sabah vs UiTM FC
Third goal...Safi

MIDFIELD maestro Safi Abdul Fatah scored for the third successive game as Sabah beat UiTM FC 3-1 at the Likas Stadium today.

Safi made the game save when he netted Sabah’s third just before the break after Zainizam Marjan had set him up nicely inside the box.

The goal was Safi’s third in four starts since signing for Sabah during the second transfer window. Earlier, the French-born Moroccan also started the move that led to Sabah’s first goal after just 32 seconds on the clock.

Mohd Fazilidin Khalid hammered the ball into the net with Zainizam applying the final pass in a breathtaking team move.

Sabah’s bright start to the match were further rewarded when Shahruddin Yakup made it 2-0 with a screamer after receiving a short pass from team captain Shahrul Azhar Ture in the 25th minutes.

Hopes were high that the Sabah could add to their tally, but UiTM had other ideas as they showed greater determination in the second half.

The visitors looked dangerous with three chances but only one went in courtesy of Afiff Ashraf’s shot from tight angle in the 77th minute.

The victory saw Sabah collect 24 points to remain in sixth position with seven wins, three draws and seven defeats.

With promotion a lost battle, Sabah’s only realistic target is to secure a place in the Malaysia Cup.

Sabah will be away to KL Pos Malaysia on May 17.
