The defending Malaysia Super League champions recently suffered two consecutive defeats in a row and some doubts are starting to be raised over their performances
Nazrul Nazari's brief leveller lasted all of four minutes before Suppiah Chanturu restored the hosts' lead with his second and Rashid Aya sealed victory in the second half, condemning Fandi Ahmad's men to a second defeat on the trot following last Saturday's 2-1 home loss to Kelantan FA.
It was the defending Malaysia Super League champions' third defeat of the season and left them ninth in the table out of 12 sides with seven games played, having won only two of those.
The form has offered cause for alarm for the majority of Goal Singapore readers, with 62.1% indicating concern over the poor performances on display and that questions should be asked about the tactics and coaching. A further 29.3% were more willing to give the LionsXII time, as it is still early on in the season, preferring to hold their judgement. The remaining 8.6% feel that results are secondary, as they are supposed to be a developmental team.
Whatever the case is, the supporters will hope to see the LionsXII return to winning ways when they face PKNS FC this Saturday at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
