Lions coach Bernd Stange has continued put his faith in youngsters like Zulfahmi Arifin, Iqbal Hussain and Anumanthan Kumar and gave a recall to Home United full-back Juma'at Jantan, 30.

But the Lions will miss the services of regulars like centre-back Baihakki Khaizan (suspended), midfielder Isa Halim and forward Khairul Amri (both injured).
