Former champions Yayasan Negeri Sembilan are back in winning ways as they defeated Uitm 7-2 at the Sultan Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh.
After suffering two defeats, at the hands of UniKL-TRC (2-1) and KL Hockey Club (6-3), the Seremban outfit got their act together, with all their foreign stars back to play, minus Vivek Gupta who is serving the first of his two match suspension for his role in the fracas against KLHC.
The poor pitch condition at the Sultan azlan Shah Stadium is a disgrace, especially so for MHF who insisted that their strategy to take matches all over the country is the right way to promote hockey.
It is obvious that key officials of MHF have been sleeping on their jobs for a simple pitch inspection would have overcome the problem of fungus on the pitch. But then again who really cares as all that matters to these MHF officials is making money, from the generous sponsors who do not know how they are being short changed.
UniKL-TRC are on a roll, as they notched up their third win in a row in the Malaysian Hockey League.
They defeated Sapura 2-1 un a nail biting match at the Sultan Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh.
They were the whipping boys of the Malaysian Hockey League. But things are different this time around for Nur Insafi.
The clash between Tenaga Nasional Berhad and UniKL-TRC tomorrow night at the Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh, promises to be an explosive affair.
