MSL Preview: Johor FC vs Kedah
Both teams will be out to make amends for their narrow defeats as they meet at Stadium Pasir Gudang tomorrow
By Falah Abdullah
It has been a below par campaign for both Johor FC and Kedah as they are languishing in the bottom three of the Malaysian Super league. On the back of narrow defeats to Perak and Kelantan for Johor FC and Kedah respectively, they will surely be eager to make amends.
Johor FC in particular must feel hard done by as their late comeback didn’t bare any fruition as Nasril Nordin’s penalty heroics denied them from snatching a draw against Perak. However, coach Sazali Saidon would surely be pleased with the current form of their deadly Brazilian striker, Arthuro Bernhardt who is the team’s current top goal scorer with 6 goals. Kedah will have a big task in their hands to stop the in form striker.
Kedah on the other hand, will yet again depend on their talismanic attacking midfielder, Khyril Muhymeen to score the goals and dictate the play from the middle of the park. He scored the only goal in the defeat against defending champions, Kelantan.
Coach Wan Jamak Wan Hassan can draw inspiration from the deadly partnership formed between Khyril Muhymeen and their Croatian hitman, Vedran Gerc. The pair has thus far scored 10 goals between them and Wan Jamak will surely hope that the pair will cause havoc to the Johor FC defence.
This bottom of the league clash will surely promise goals as both teams will be out to avenge their narrow defeats.
