Their 8th place position in the super league standings was abruptly taken away from them by Sri Pahang's quick ascent to the top, and now they are presently occupying 9th place in the league standings.
The pressure is rising on them to regain their position at the top, and now they will square up with Sri Pahang for their 16th matchday, putting them on the verge of winning a victory over the visitors at home.
Despite losing 2-1 to Sabah FA on the road, they have been in solid form thus far. The game had the potential to be a draw in the end, but due to their error in judgement in the closing seconds, Sabah FA were able to score twice to win.
