Jonathan and Guntur propelled Wolves to the League Cup

Jonathan's (facing camera) equalizer set the pace for Wolves's win 
With goals from former S.League players Jonathan Xu and Guntur Djafril in each half coupled the late strike by Haziq Sudhir that hammered the last nail to the coffin, NFL Division Two side Admiralty FC secured the last ticket to the Starhub League Cup by staging an upset over Singapore Recreation Club (SRC) of Division One with 3-1 scoreline at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

Little would expected from the Wolves decked in black outfit when they conceded a goal in 20th minute that witnessed Shaiful Fauzi placed the Padang side on the pole position in the Playoff Final that saw the two finalists emerged after shrugging off their opponents last week on the same ground.

Nonetheless, it was a composed and confident show put by Admiralty towards the end of the game that saw the scrappy play forward that derailed any effort by SRC and led to the exit door, although Mahmod Hashim's expulsion in the second period of play was the only blemish in the courageous show by the reigning Division Two champs.
