Malaysia Cup

Quarter final first legs tonight. Favourites Selangor take on Terengganu at the Shah Alam Stadium and in my humble opinion could be in for a hard night. And that piece of wisdom is based on 90 minutes watching the team known as the Turtles beat Johor 4-2 earlier in the month. Their assistant coach Mohamad Nik is warning them against losing concentration.

Kelantan have enjoyed a good season back in the big time, reaching the FA Cup Final earlier in the season. Tonight they play KL Plus at Cheras where they expect to be roared on by 10,000 travelling fans. Not that the home side's manager Husni Mohd Yusuf is worried. He says "But we have the experience of playing to full houses away and we will not be intimidated." Meaning of course their home support ain't that great. Which is understable. Who wants to support a team named after a toll road?

Perlis make the long journey south to take on Johor FC, wonder if they use that toll road, looking to Nizaruddin Yusop for goals. The MSL top scorer had been courted by Sriwijaya but their coach Rahmad Darmawan finally plumped for SAF striker Aleksander Duric, deciding that Nizaruddin was too young.

It will be friends reunited in the other tie tonight as Negeri Sembilan take on Kuala Muda but coach Wan Jamak Wan Hassan is feeling confident as he recalls loan signing Hairuddin Omar.
