This weekend, it's time for the Malaysian Super League to take the spotlight again, following the nationwide general elections that saw the country change its ruling government for the first time ever since its independence in 1957. Changes in the standings can be expected to take place after round ten are played out.
In the top three, no standings changes are expected as the third-placed Pahang have played against Terengganu. JDT, currently in first and will play away to Selangor on Saturday, meanwhile have an unassailable lead, as do second-placed Perak's 19 points.

After their win in Kota Bharu, PKNP have moved up to sixth place, but a Kedah win over bottom-placed Negeri Sembilan on Sunday could see them dropping back down to seventh.
Interestingly Kedah, in seventh, could move up to as high as the fourth place, or drop down to as low as tenth if things don't go their way.
Finally, the bottom two teams too will not move up to safety. Kelantan in eleventh lost on Friday, while Negeri, now on five points, are separated by four points from tenth-placed Melaka United.
