With both sides coming from loses in their last matches in the super league they'll be looking forward to registering a positive result by walking away with a win, will the visitors finally break free from their winless drought or will this be another disappointing loss?
The hosts have been in inconsistent form lately, having won just two of their previous six games while losing three, drawing one, and being tied for eighth place in the standings with Melaka United and Selangor on points.
They recently played Negeri Sembilan, a team that was difficult for them to play against because they put too much pressure on them, and as a consequence, they lost 2-1 on the road. There was nothing they could have done about it because it was out of their control.
