KOTA KINABALU: The Junior Rhinos succumbed to their fifth consecutive defeat after being edged 1-0 by Perak in a President’s Cup Group B tie at the Likas Stadium yesterday.

The equally contested tie saw the visiting Perak stun the hosts with an 87th minute winner.

It was Dhaya Naidu A/L Samudram who gave his side their first win of the season after picking up a loose ball in front of the Junior Rhinos’ goalmouth before slotting home from close range.

It started from Muhammad Aiedil Shafiq Azman, who unleashed a powerful drive from about 25 metres out that the Junior Rhinos’ keeper Masran Masri blocked. The alert Dhaya was quick to pounce home the loose ball from six yards out.

Earlier in the first half, striker Harman Peter squandered a golden opportunity from giving the Junior Rhinos an early lead when he failed to connect into an empty goalmouth as his header went off target.

With the defeat, the Junior Rhinos are rooted second from bottom in the 10-team standings on two points from their opening two draws.

They will take on Kuala Lumpur away on Thursday.
