ROSMINI Hj Abdul Kahar scored twice to help Royal Brunei Police Forces Sports Council (MS PDB) recover from two goals down to share the spoils in a 4-4 draw against Majra FC in the DST Super League last night at the Balapan Track and Field at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex.

Despite coming away with a point for their efforts, MS PDB coach was not satisfied with the performance as they were obviously the better team early in the game, jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the first half.

"It was quite disappointing. We could have finished the game early. We were 2-0 up early in the first-half and I think the players were a bit complacent," said Sahrin Hj Mohammad Jaya.

"The midfielders did not pressure the opponents enough in the game and they were too relaxed," added the coach.

"We dropped points again tonight and it is very disappointing. But it is too early to say that we are out of the challenge for the title this year.

"We just need to move on and improve on our result in the next game," he added.

MS PDB went ahead as early as the 4th minute when Md Azary Saiful Rizal Hj Awang headed in a Md Syarafuddin Hamdi Hj Talip cross.

Jasriman Hj Johari would double MS PDB's lead in the 21st minute, scoring from just outside the penalty box.

The game looked lost for Majra FC but they would respond, pulling one goal back in the 39th minute after Azri Zahari took advantage of poor communication between two MS PDB centre backs before blasting the ball into the bottom corner.

They would equalise within the next four minutes, Mohd Azwan Hassan the quickest to the ball during a scramble in the penalty box.

Majra FC would finally take the lead through Abdul Azim Said who found the back of the net in the 80th minute.

Majra FC looked to have secured all three points when Azri added another goal to his name just two minutes later.

But Rosmini would put on a heroic effort to score two goals in just as many minutes in the dying moments of the game.

He restored hope to MS PDB when he scored a spectacular free-kick in the 86th minute.

He was on target again a minute later with a stunning 20-metre strike that gave the Majra FC goalkeeper no chance.

The draw sees MS PDB now sitting in eighth position in the table with just a point to their name. Majra FC are fourth with 2 points.
