Singapore's LionsXII are on collision course with Treble winners Kelantan in the last 16 of next year's Malaysian FA Cup, following the tournament draw in Shah Alam on Monday.

But first, V. Sundramoorthy's side will have to navigate a tricky first round tie against PKNS FC at the Petaling Jaya Stadium on Jan 25.

Twice this year, the LionsXII lost on that ground - once in the Malaysian Super League and then in the group stage of the Malaysia Cup, both by a 0-1 scoreline.

They must reverse their fortunes in Petaling Jaya in order to meet holders Kelantan- who received a first-round bye - in Kota Baru on Feb 26.
