Although their FA Cup semi-final opponents Negeri Sembilan play in the second tier, Pahang goalkeeper Wan Azraie Wan Teh said that the Elephants will not underestimate their threat.

The custodian told Harian Metro that at this stage in the competition, there is little gap in the qualities of the teams.

"At this stage (semi-finals), all teams will give their best and try to do everything to qualify for the final.

"That's why we must not take this match lightly and must take the advantage of playing at home to win comfortably, before the second leg.

"Although Negeri Sembilan drew 1-1 against Perlis in the Premier League on Tuesday, they are still unbeaten after 11 matches (in the league) and we have to defeat them with a comfortable margin," said the 30-year old goalkeeper.

The first leg match between Pahang and Negeri will be played at the Darulmakmur Stadium on Sunday, while the return fixture in Seremban will be held on May 13.
