Free Scoring Hamkah The Difference For PKNS

When PKNS announced the signing of Karlo Primorace from Sime Darby, many in Malaysian football were salivating at the prospect of seeing him play alongside Patrick Wleh who had made a similar move 12 months earlier.

Last season they scored almost 50 goals between them.

It hasn't panned out that way of course. It rarely does in life, let along football. (Please note, it is football, not footy).

On Saturday, in their opening game of the Super League season, PKNS took the lead at Terengganu but were pulled back and lost 2-1.

Last night in the FA Cup they had better luck. Hamzah scored twice as PKNS defeated JDT 2 3-2 in Lumut. The other goal was scored by Wleh but Hamkah's brace means he has netted three time in the opening two games in Malaysia which probably makes him the leading scorer in the country at this moment in time!

Elsewhere, there were no surprises.

Adam Griffiths hit a couple for Kedah as they breezed past KL 4-0 while T Team beat UiTM 3-2 with their goals scored within the first half hour.

The most exciting tie came at Perak where Pahang were the visitors. Azamuddin Akil gave the Malaysia Cup winners the lead inside 10 minutes before the wonderfully named Hardi Haadar equalised. Then Kyaw Zayar Win made it 2-1 for the home team before ex QPR defender Damion Stewart levelled on 57 minutes. That's how it finished before Pahang finally settled the tie on penalties.

Former Arema and Persela striker Marcio Souza was on target for Terengganu as they defeated Pahang Shahzan Muda.

One game remaining with Selangor taking on Harimau Muda C tonight in Petaling Jaya.

The next round will be played 4 February with holders Kelantan entering the fray against Sabah
