PAF edge KPT, SSGC finally get a win

Multan, 12 October 2018: The 12th Pakistan Premier Football League 2018 – Multan leg at the Qilla Kohna Qasim Bagh Stadium saw two games last night, 11 October.

In the 8:30 PM kick off, Pakistan Air Force (PAF) just needed a first half goal from captain Muhammad Mujahid to prevail over Karachi Port Trust (KPT) to win 1-0 and again top the table with 11 points from 5 games. Peshawar-based PAF dominated the match as KPT continued to struggle and remain with just 1 point from 4 games.

The 10:45 PM game saw the first ever top division Sui Gas Derby as Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) of Karachi and Sui National Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL) of Lahore. The game was cagey and looked to end in yet another 0-0 draw for SSGC, substitute Habib Ur Rehman found the back of the net deep in stoppage time after a last ditch attempt by SSGC to win 1-0.

This was star-studded SSGC’s first win, and goal, of the PPFL 2018 season after a string of 0-0 draws and a 1-0 loss to Army. SNGPL would be disappointed with their young side starting brightly before this defeat in the season. The result leaves SSGC and SNGPL both on 6 points from 5 games.

KARACHI: Following few anxious days, Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) finally managed their first win when they edged past Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) 1-0 in their match of the 12th Pakistan Premier Football League at the Qasim Bagh Stadium in Multan on Friday.

After a hard-fought battle it was Habib-ur-Rehman who eventually did a glorious job with a winner in the stoppage time. Meanwhile, Pakistan Air Force (PAF) regained top spot after defeating Karachi Port Trust (KPT) 1-0. The winner came through Mohammad Mujahid in the 30th minute. PAF coach Mohammad Arshad said they missed several chances.

“We missed many chances,” Arshad told ‘The News’. After winning the game the PAF management sent all players to their homes for a couple of days rest.“I had told my boys if they are able to get early goal then they should keep pressure on KPT as it was not the team of the past and was a bit weak. We scored an early goal but after that our players got a few easy chances but could not produce a goal,” said Arshad, also a former international.PAF, with the outcome, moved to 11 points after five meetings.
