Meanwhile, in the Premier League, Sarawak failed to take advantage of playing on home ground when they went down 0-2 to UiTM FC at the State Stadium in Kuching.

UiTM, who scored through Montenegro striker Zarco Korac (29th minute) and Senegal’s Robert Mendy (85th), are now third with 17 points after nine matches while Sarawak find themselves in eighth spot with eight points.
