The LionsXII have halted their three-game losing streak in the Malaysian Super League (MSL) with a 2-1 win against Malaysian military side ATM.

Two goals in five minutes from Khairul Amri and Zulfahmi Arifin put Fandi Ahmad's team ahead before Rezal Zambery pulled one back for the visitors on the 76th minute.

Striker Amri scored his seventh goal of the season in the 15th minute when he headed home a Shahfiq Ghani corner to give his side the lead at Jalan Besar Stadium.

Midfielder Zulfahmi doubled the lead in the 20th minute when he cut into the penalty area from the right and curled home with his favoured left foot.
