Not for the first time, the LionsXII were left to rue missed opportunities as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to struggling T-Team in the Malaysian Super League on Saturday evening.

A majestic curling free kick from Chilean midfielder Nelson Marcelo Martin just past the hour mark cancelled out skipper Safuwan Baharudin's 24th-minute opener at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

Forwards Faris Ramli and Khairul Amri spurned gilt-edged chances that could have earned their side all three points.

With 15 points from 10 games, Fandi Ahmad's men lie fifth on the 12-team table. T-Team remain in ninth spot with 11 points from 10 fixtures.

The LionsXII next travel to face 10th-placed Sime Darby next Saturday.
