Malaysia Cup: Negeri Sembilan 2 Terengganu 1

Negeri Sembilan lifted their second Malaysia Cup title in three years after overcoming Terengganu 2-1 in a thrilling encounter on Saturday.

Fans from both sides packed into the Shah Alam stadium in their thousands, but it was the ones clad in yellow and black who celebrated after goals from S. Kunanlan and Hairuddin Omar sealed victory.

Terengganu were the slight favourites prior to the match but Negeri were the side to begin the final stronger.
They controlled possession during the early stages and looked the more dangerous going forward, though Terengganu enjoyed their fair share of chances on the break.

The Turtles attempted to force their way back into the game when a glorious chance fell to Modh Ashaari Shamsuddin, who was fed with a through ball from Abdul Hadi Yahya.

But the flamboyant midfielder squandered the chance by smothering the ball straight at Negri's goalkeeper, while team-mate Abdul Manaf Mamat then saw his shot rattle the bar after some good work by Joseph Kalang Tie down the wing.

Negeri's upper hand in the first half was characterised more often than not by S. Kunanlan causing headaches the Terengganu defence.

The pacey winger drove his way through the oppositive defence in the 28th minute before cutting in to shoot, but his effort was cleared off the line.
