Round 14 of the Malaysia Super League will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday (5 and 6 June), but only five matches will take place.

The top-of-the-table clash between leaders JDT and second placed Pahang has been postponed to Friday due to the passing of the Johor Sultan's mother.

JDT are eight points clear at the top, and their position is unassailable. However, Pahang have a marginal chance of dropping down into fifth after all five matches have been played.

Perak in third have a chance of snatching the second place again, after losing it in last week's top-of-the-table clash. The Bos Gaurus play away to a resurgent Negeri Sembilan on Wednesday.

Kedah (4th) and Terengganu (5th), both with 21 points, have a mathematical shot at reaching second place, if they win and Perak lose.

PKNP FC, Selangor and Melaka United, in eighth, ninth and tenth respectively are all on 14 points, and could climb up as high as the seventh place or drop down to as low as 11th.

In the relegation zone, Negeri in 11th with 11 points are the only side with the chance of climbing up to safety. If everything goes right for them, they might even shoot all the way to eighth place.

Bottom-placed Kelantan are the only side still on single-digit points (8), and can only go up as high as 11th, which is unlikely considering their head coach Fajer Ibrahim has reportedly resigned again.
