The Malaysian Super League champions will hope to get their campaign off the ground following a losing start as they welcome Premier League opposition in the FA Cup at home
A 1-0 loss to Pahang FA on Friday was not the most ideal result, but coach Fandi Ahmad would have seen enough positives to remain optimistic. With second-tier KL DRB-Hicom set for a visit, the Singapore legend will be keen for his charges to get the victory.
The LionsXII displayed a markedly more attacking attitude than they did under predecessor V. Sundramoorthy and Fandi will hope the goals flow at Bishan Stadium in their first home game of the season.
At the Jalan Besar Stadium last season, a near-flawless home record was key to a triumphant MSL campaign and the 51-year-old will also hope for the fans to recreate the same sort of atmosphere at their temporary venue.
The majority of Goal Singapore readers have tipped the hosts to cruise, with 69.1% believing that the LionsXII will advance to the next round without any trouble.
The LionsXII's hunt for the first win of the season will begin tonight at 7.45p.m.
