Red Warriors travel to Kuching in what should be a difficult tie with the aim to regain pole position in league
Kelantan are second in the league with two games in hand and they can regain the top spot they held on to for weeks by winning against Sarawak this Saturday. T
he Red Warriors are indeed in high spirits despite off-field events and this showed after Kelantan punished Arema FC of Indonesia 3-0 last Tuesday in the AFC Cup.
Statistics also show that Kelantan have the best attack and defence in the league making them a feared side by any team who comes against them.
But the trip to Sarawak is anything but a sure three points for the Red Warriors.
Sarawak have been playing attractive football, and the dark horses of the league are a very disciplined and passionate side. They have stunned many better teams including last year's Premier League champion PKNS, and the inclusion of Joel Epalle will only strengthen the Crocs.
Both teams have met once before this season in the first round of the FA Cup with Kelantan proceeding to the next after a late goal.
The game showed that both teams are equally balanced with both teams playing attractive and attcking football.
Despite the gap in the standings in the league between the two teams, this game is a sure thriller and is set to go to the wire with the odd-goal again separating the winner and the loser.
