Match Report
Kelantan went into the second leg of their 2013 Malaysia Cup quarterfinal match against Johor Darul Takzim with a two-goal deficit, but they did more than enough to recover, and ran circles around the visitors to make it to the semifinal.

Choosing the man of the match was particularly challenging, as the Red Warriors performed spectacularly to keep JDT out of the match and take the win. But their forward Norfarhan Muhammad  stood out, racking up two personal goals, and providing two assists from the six goals produced.

His first was a beautifully-struck shot from the edge of the box that left JDT goalkeeper Zulfadhli helpless in the 19th minute, which also helped Kelantan settle into the match, whereas his second in the 62nd minute showcased his clinical finishing, when he squeezed in a shot into the far bottom corner of the goal, having first evaded a defender.

Kelantan head coach Bojan Hodak will definitely be happy that his strikers are now firing on all cylinders before facing ATM in the semifinal.
