Terengganu-based sides T-Team FC and Terengganu have been drawn against each other in the third round draw of the FA Cup, while Super League (MSL) sides Perak and Kedah will face off in the same stage.
The draw was telecast live on Media Prima's TV9 Sunday morning, with Malaysian legend Datuk Santokh Singh and former Pahang and Selangor head coach Zainal Abidin Hassan drawing the team and fixture lots.
Despite a poor 2016 season that eventually led to their relegation from the MSL, Terengganu last year defeated T-Team 2-1 at home in the league, with the return fixture ending in a goalless draw. The coming FA Cup tie is set to be hosted by the Titans.
Meanwhile between the Bos Gaurus and the Red Eagles, their two MSL matches last season ended in one win to Kedah, and a goalless draw. Perak will host the coming cup tie.
In the other fixtures, defending champions Johor Darul Ta'zim FC (JDT) will host Premier League club UiTM FC. Premier League side PKNP FC, who performed a giant-killing feat by taking down Kelantan last Tuesday, may just find themselves advancing further in the competition, when they were drawn to host another second division side, Kuantan.
The one-legged third round matches are slated to be held sometime in March, with the winners undergoing another draw for the quarter-final stage.
The remaining fixtures:
Perlis vs Sarawak
Negeri Sembilan vs Pulau Pinang
Sabah vs MOF FC
Pahang vs Melaka United FC
