a very solid midfield with the duets of Flavio Beck Junior and Asri Akbar who played as the defensive midfielders. Both support Sultan Samma as team playmaker. While on the left and right there were Terens Puhiri and Patrich Wanggai. While the spearhead was entrusted to Lerby Eliandry.
In the match against PSM, all the players from the back to the front played nicely. But one player who was in the spotlight, he was Sultan Samma. He who previously is often being a substitute was believed to be a starter.
The trust that given by the coach team resulted into a positive thing. Although not scoring goals, Sultan was able to accelerate which was difficult for the opponent to stop him. He made his teammates only need to look for the right position to receive his nice pass. "One word for Sultan, Top !" said Ahmad Amiruddin, the assistant coach of Borneo FC.
The amazing of Borneo FC squad gave deep wounds for PSM. The visitor team were humiliated 3-2. That result helped restore the sharpness of Pesut Etam who previously could not score more than one goal in the last eleven games.
