KILANAS FC will be hoping to end their winless streak in the DST Super League when they take on Majra FC at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas at 9pm tonight.

Their winless run extended to three games last weekend when they were held to a 3-3 draw by Jerudong FC, a result which puts them ninth in the 10-team table with only one point from three games.

Kilanas assistant coach Radzuan Hj Madali will view tonight's game as a chance to turn things around, but it will not be easy as they are coming up against a side which has just regained form.

Majra, who are sixth in the table with five points from three games, began their season with an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Balapan Track and Field at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas on December 16. They were then held to a 4-4 draw by the Royal Brunei Police Forces Sports Council (MS PDB) on December 21 before notching their first win against bottom side Najip FC last Saturday, a 4-1 result.

"Tomorrow's game against Majra FC will be a tough one," Radzuan admitted yesterday.

"They have good quality players in each department but we showed in our recent game against Jerudong FC that we can match bigger teams in the league, and we will try to control the game tomorrow and try to challenge every ball in the game," he added.

Kilanas will also look to solve their defensive problems which have seen them concede 10 goals in just three games.

Majra, though, have a potent strike force which includes the likes of Mohammad Jurelmi Hj Zaini, Syahremy Karim, Azri Zahari, Faisal Mohammad and Abang Nor Silmy Abang Hj Taha — who bagged a brace in the game against Najip.

"We need the players to keep their focus throughout the game, especially the defenders," warned Radzuan.

"They need to support each other (since) lack of concentration and teamwork will make the game easy for Majra.

"We probably have the youngest line up in the league this season and even though that gives us a slight disadvantage, it will provide the players good experience.

"Majra, on the other hand, are very good team with a very highly experienced players (so) it will be a very interesting match."
