Lions Class '12 On Target To Emulate Class '94

LionsX11 managed to turn around a 2-1 deficit in their opening Malaysia Cup tie away to Pahang to win 2-0 on the night at the Jalan Besar Stadium. last night.

After their tepid 0-0 at home to Johor FC which had boos echoing round the stadium, the fans got behind the team last night in the right way as goals in each half from former Persib and Home United striker Shahril Ishak booked their passage in their debut season.

They will play ATM in the semi final after the Premier League champions defeated Negeri Sembilan 3-1 in Paroi with Marlon Alex James netting a brace.

Kelantan needed an injury time equaliser from Ghaddar to overcome plucky Felda United who were leading 2-1 on the night. Curier and Kadir had given the visitors the lead but Norfarhan pulled one back on 70' before Kelantan's white knuckle ride was ended thanks to Ghaddar's late, late show.

The team from the north east will meet Selangor in the semi after they defeated Johor FC 2-1 on the night, 5-2 on aggregate.

Many will be hoping for a Selangor v LionsX11 final recapping the old days but Kelantan are a new force in Malaysian football and they will have something to say about that.

Pahang fans at Stade de Darul Makmur celebrating their 2-1 win in 1st leg was like they have won the Cup vs LionsXII...
