Malaysian Super League Preview: Felda United vs LionsXII

Malaysian Super League Preview: Felda United vs LionsXII


LionsXII travel to face Felda United eager for a good showing to keep them in title contention and to put behind the memories of their loss to Kelantan

The LionsXII came unstuck in their top of the table clash against Kelatan and will be looking to redeem themselves when they travel to face Felda United in Selangor. The crushing defeat brought the Lions to the ground after the high from their 5-0 trouncing of PKNS.

The Lions, who remain in first place despite the defeat, have seen their lead at the top of the Malaysian Super League cut to two points after their defeat in Kelantan and will be keen to extend their lead at the summit.

Coach V. Sundramoorthy will be keen to put behind the memory of the crushing defeat in Kelantan and is expected to rotate his squad with Safuwan Baharudin, Hariss Harun and Khairul Nizam picking up knocks.

With eight games left to go in this season's Malaysian Super League the heat is on the LionXII to deliver on their early-season promise and the spotlight will be on them to see how they bounce back from that defeat. The Lions have lost two of their last three matches and coach Sundram will be keen to stem the tide. The Lions will be boosted by the return of forward Khairul Amri and defender Bhaihakki Khaizan who featured against Kelantan.

The Lions can take confidence from the reverse fixture, where they posted a commanding 3-1 victory with goals from Hariss Harun, Sufian Anuar and Shahril Ishak.

Felda United are on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Sabah and lie in 11th place in the table with a leaky defence and goals hard to come by. Having only won promotion to the Malaysian Super League in 2010, they have found the going tough this season. Felda will have to be at their very best if they are to salvage anything from this match.
