Kedah's Aidil eager to fulfill dream of locking horns with JDT

Despite the absence of two of Kedah's key players in their Malaysia Cup final clash this Saturday, head coach Aidil Sharin Sahak is relishing the chance to square off against the mighty Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT).

Right back Rizal Ghazali and centre back Renan Alves will be suspended for the final due to accumulated bookings, but speaking in the pre-match press conference on Friday, Aidil remarked that he is determined to not let this affect his team's performance.

"This final is quite difficult than before (FA Cup final). We're playing a better team after a short period of recovery and playing 120 minutes against a strong team in Kuantan (against Pahang in Malaysia Cup semi-finals).
