LionsXII returned to their winning ways thanks to a double from Agu Casmir, as they sealed a commanding 3-0 victory over Sarawak FA in the Malaysian Super League (MSL) match.

The Lions started the match strongly, making their intention known to their opponent that they are determined to halt their recent run of poor form.

Safuwan Baharudin provided that boost as he opened the scoring account for the Lions in the seventh minute, with a headed goal.

The Lions continued to dominate the game, surging forward at every given opportunity, while restricting Sarawak to the rare speculative long-range effort on goal.

The Lions were rewarded on the 38
th minute when Agu Casmir calmly slotted in the rebound after Sufian Anuar's shot was parried away by Sarawak keeper, Saiful Amar.

It was more of the same in the second half, with the Lions dominating possession of the ball against a helpless Sarawak side.

Agu Casmir got his deserving second goal of the night in the 65
th minute when Shahdan Sulaiman played him through on goal. His first shot was pushed away by Sarawak keeper Saiful, but Agu pounced on the rebound to make it 3-0 to the Lions.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Sarawak coach Robert Alberts was gracious in defeat, admitting that his team was outplayed.

“LionsXII played well and they were the better team today. It was a good atmosphere and we have to learn from LionsXII today. We lost to a better team and that is football. There's good spirit within the LionsXII and they have got a good attitude both on and off the pitch,” he said.

LionsXII Coach V.Sundramoorthy was happy with the important result as he praised the team’s effort.

“After two draws and a defeat, it was good to win tonight. And it is important for us. For me, Agu is the in-form striker we have at the moment and he is much more confident in front of goal. “

As for winning the MSL title, Sundramoorthy isn’t giving up just yet.

“We might just be able to win it."
