Malaysian Super League (MSL) champions Kelantan will look to bounce back from their AFC Cup elimination with a win over Felda United in the first leg of the Malaysia Cup quarter-final tie at the Hang Jebat Stadium tonight.

The Red Warriors have set their sights on grabbing a comfortable lead to ensure they at least stay on track of completing the domestic treble. Bojan Hodak can count on a near full-strength squad for this clash as Lebanese import Muhammad Ghaddar and S.Subramaniam made their comeback from injury in the match against Arbil SC. The only ones sure to miss out are long term absentees Azizi Mat Rose and Farisham Ismail. With on-loan striker Afiq Azmi’s form, the Croatian has the option of partnering him with Ghaddar or Norshahrul Idlan Talaha in attack, or unleash all three if the need arises.

Opponents Felda United will also be taking to the field with their best players in tow as veteran midfielder Juzaili Samion looks to be the only player definitely out of contention. The 31-year-old is suspended after the red card he received in their last group match. With 2011 SEA Games gold medal winners Ahmad Fakri Saarani and Yong Kuong Yong, ex-international Hardi Jaafar and former Nottingham Forest striker Mickaël Antoine-Curier in their ranks, The Settlers would be no pushovers themselves.

In the league meetings this season, Felda won 1-0 at home while Hodak’s men romped to a 5-1 win in Kota Bharu.
