INDERA SC will look to win back-to-back DST FA Cup titles after their maiden success last year ahead of a highly-anticipated clash in the semi-final against MS PDB at the Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex tonight. Last year’s runners-up MS PDB will look to go one step better after their cup run – where they stopped record winners MS ABDB – were ended by eventual winners Indera SC in the final.

Indera SC will also look to win their second silverware to add to their DST Sumbangsih Cup triumph in this season’s curtain raiser.

Both teams needed extra time to fend the challenge of their opponents in the last eight with identical 1-0 score-lines with MS PDB’s Zakeus Anak Sinchun scoring the winner against IKLS and Mohammad Asri bin Haji Aspar netting home the winner for Indera against MS ABDB.

Indera and MS PDB have met twice this season in the DST Super League with the former winning once and the other game ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

The other semi-final will see Kota Ranger facing BSRC FT, the only team outside the top flight left in the competition, at the Berakas Sports Complex this Friday.
