KELANTAN coach Bojan Hodak does not believe the outcome of today's top-of-the-table Super League clash against Singapore's LionsXII in Kota Baru will be decisive in the title race.
LionsXII travel to the Sultan Mohamed IV Stadium with a five-point lead over the defending champions but they have also played three games more although an away win for an eight-point lead could prove advantageous psychologically.
But Hodak remains wary of LionsXII, who will be well-rested having not played since a 5-0 demolishment of PKNS on Apr 17 while Kelantan have played two FA Cup semi-final legs and one AFC Cup game in the interim period.
"It's a very important game but it would not decide anything," said Hodak when contacted yesterday. "If we win, it is a big advantage for us and if we draw, we will still be in a good position."
The only worry for Hodak is the fatigue factor after Kelantan only managed to get one training session in after just returning from Alor Star where they battled from 2-0 down at half-time for a 2-2 draw which advanced them to the FA Cup final.
LionsXII, who were beaten 2-1 by Kelantan at home on the opening day of the league, are bent on getting even.
