Trouble-ridden Melaka hope to upset JDT

KUALA LUMPUR: Melaka United hope to put aside their internal problems by beating defending champions Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) in a Super League match at Sultan Ibrahim Stadium tomorrow.

However, Melaka must first repair their leaky defence, which saw the club concede late goals in the 2-2 draw against Sri Pahang last week.

Melaka coach Asri Ninggal said: "We need to fix our weaknesses and avoid conceding late goals.

"It is something we need to rectify ahead of the JDT game."

It is understood that Melaka owe their players two months in salary arrears.

Melaka are eighth in the standings with 17 points.

JDT, who are unbeaten this season, lead the table with 38 points, three more than second-placed Sabah.
