Kedah-Malacca and Pahang-Perlis to face in semi finals of Sultan Gold Cup

Last year's losing finalist,  Kedah, assisted by six Super League players, are confident of making up for last year's disappointment by winning the Sultan's Gold Cup this year.

Kedah who lost to Kelantan in a penalty shootout last year, moved into the semifinals of the Sultan's Gold Cup and will face Melaka at the Darul Aman Stadium on Saturday.

The six Super League players in the side are Mohd Faizal Abu Bakar, Mohd Fazliata Taib, Hattaphon Bun An, Wan Mohd Asraf Wan Ali, Mohd Sany Mat Isa and Mohd Muhaimin Mohamad.

Kedah coach Mohamad Ramlee said the presence of the six players in a team made up of mostly President's Cup players, would help strengthen the side to go all the way to the final.

"So far, the physical and mental condition of the players is at the optimum level and I have no serious injury problems," he said when met at the Kedah branch office of the Malaysian Malays Football Association here today.

In the quarterfinals last week, Kedah beat Penang 2-0 at the City Stadium in Penang while Melaka overcame Selangor 2-0 for a 5-1 aggregate win at the Hang Tuah Stadium here.

The other semifinal will be contested between Pahang and Perlis who beat Police (2-0) and Malaysian Universities Sports Council (MASUM) 3-0, respectively.
