FourFourTwo’s MSL Preview, Round 6

Selangor are hoping to bounce back from their defeat to Terengganu as they go up against high-glyers Felda United, while Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) will test Perak’s resilient defence in the Malaysia Super League (MSL).

Terengganu vs Felda United

Mon Apr 4 | Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Stadium | 9pm

Last meeting: Felda 1 Terengganu 0 (Aug 15, 2015; MSL)

Player to watch: Issey Nakajima-Farran (Terengganu)

Billed as: A test of Felda’s title credentials

Summary: Having secured Mike Mulvey as head coach until the end of the year, Terengganu face another tough encounter following their convincing 3-1 win over Selangor before the international break.

The Turtles’ squad received high rating from many at the start of the season while Felda United have looked like Johor Darul Ta’zim’s (JDT) genuine contender thus far.

The engine room battle, pitting Nakajima-Farran and Gustavo Lopez against Felda duo Liberian international Zah Rahan Krangar and Uzbek Lutfulla Turaev, will likely be where the match is decided.

Terengganu may rely on 21-year-old striker Amirul Hisyam Ashari to get the goals while Francis Forkey Doe spearheads the Fighters’ attack

Prediction: Terengganu 2 Felda 2
