Three spots of the 2017 FA Cup semi-final has been decided and there's only space for one more. Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) takes on Pahang on Sunday to determine the final slot after three matches took place on Friday night that saw Kedah, Terengganu and Negeri Sembilan book their place in the next round. Goal reviews the action from last night.

PKNP FC 1 (2) v Kedah 0 (6)

Ken Ilso, Kedah, FA Cup, 21/04/2017

After the heavy first leg defeat at Darul Aman Stadium, the second leg was merely a formality and a matter of pride redemption for the plucky Premier League side. Abu Bakar Fadzim's boys did just that as they won the second leg through Shahrel Fikri's goal in the first half. Kedah's Tan Cheng Hoe swapped half his usual team out for this encounter but was still able to afford minute to Ken Ilso who sat out of Kedah's defeat to T-Team due to suspension.

Sarawak 1 (2) v Terengganu 1 (2). Terengganu win 4-1 on penalties

Issey Nakajima, Terengganu, FA Cup, 21/04/2017

It was a repeat of the first leg score in this match played at State Stadium in Kuching. Terengganu drew first blood through Issey Nakajima in the first half but Sarawak hit back through Demerson Costa last in the second half to drag the match into extra time. However, neither teams could add to their score in the additional 30 minutes and the match went into penalty shoot-out.

Terengganu's substitute goalkeeper, Suffian Rahman became the hero of his team after he stopped one spot kick and Sarawak conspired to miss their second spot kick of the shoot-out. Terengganu converted all four of their kicks and that was sufficient to call an end to proceedings and send the Turtles to the semi-final.
