Khairul does Malay Mail in (The Malay Mail)

KHAIRUL ANUAR YAHYA destroyed Kuala Lumpur Malay Mail when he scored all
four of Perak Lintau's goals in their 4-2 FAM Cup Group A win at Merdeka
Stadium yesterday.
It was Lintau's second victory after their 5-1 win over Sabah's
Gunosukod last week.
Coached by former Perak and national player Mohamad Zakaria, Lintau, who
are making their FAM Cup debut, played a higly disciplined game.
They took the lead in the 8th minute and added another 15 minutes later.
Though Malay Mail pulled one back through Afandi Sahar in the 29th
minute, Khairul made it 3-1 four minutes later for his hat-trick in the
first half.
Surprisingly, only a few Malay Mail players seemed to be in the match.
Just when Malay Mail thought they could get back into the game with an
Afandi goal in the 60th minute, Khairul completed his magnificent day with
his fourth strike.
Said Zakaria: "I am proud of my strikers who have scored nine goals in
two matches. It is really a good start for us.
"The players are carrying out my instructions well and their dedication
and spirit has been vital to our success.
"We have found capable replacements after losing seven players to State
Malay Mail coach Lucas Kallang said: "This is certainly not the team I
"Nothing went right for us. There is a lot for us to work on."
