thumbnail Hello,

Bojan Hodak admitted that ATM are much stronger opponents than Johor Darul Takzim and must stop Marlon Alex James in order to gain something from the Malaysia Cup semifinal match

Bojan Hodak has described Kelantan's clash with ATM in the 2013 Malaysia Cup semifinal as an even match.

Defending champions Kelantan will face last year’s finalists ATM after beating Johor Darul Takzim 6-1 at home and clinching an 8-5 aggregate at the end of 180 minutes of football.

According to Bernama, Bojan said: "Our chances of winning [the semifinal] are 50-50.

"Our history with [ATM] is such that sometimes we won, and other times we lost.

"Small mistakes can determine the outcome of the match.

"It will be tight but we will be ready for them."

Bojan is also hoping that Shakir Shaari and Nik Shahrul Azim, will regain full fitness before the match against the Gladiators on October 19 after picking up injuries in the second leg of the quarterfinal last Saturday.

Hodak has stated that ATM are much better than JDT as they will be more confident after dumping out the Malaysian Super League (MSL) champions LionsXII in the quarterfinal. 

He also added that one of their top priorities is to stop Marlon Alex James, who is in his top form right now.

Kelantan will face ATM at the Selayang stadium first, before the traveling to Kota Bharu a week after that for the return leg.
