Stadium Hang Jebat, Melaka, will be the stage for Felda United FC to strut their stuff against minnows, PKNS FC. The Settlers would look to home comforts in Melaka, after their demoralising defeat against the LionsXII last week.
An equalizer from Mohd Raimi Mohd Nor proved to be consolation for Felda United as they were humbled by the dominant Singapore side. To add further misery, Felda United will probably be without their main forward, Farderin Kadir who has yet to recover from a niggling injury.
Meanwhile, PKNS FC drew at home against Perak FA after a late penalty was duly converted by Michal Kubala. The Fire Ants have suffered consecutive draws in their last three games and Haji Abdul Rahman’s side will definitely be looking for a way to end this curse.
E.Elavarasan's Felda side has been in poor form, having not won a single game in their last 5 matches. 3 points in this clash would see them tie with PKNS FC in the league table.
In-form full back, Helmi Rameli will be crucial for the visitors if they intend to nab all three points. With already 3 goals to his name this season, the versatile defender is looking likely to become the unsung hero of the team.
It will be intriguing to see how Felda United FC, the champions of 2010 Malaysian Premier League, face off against PKNS FC, the champion of 2011 Malaysian Premier League as both coaches will look to bury their poor form
