Singapore's LIONSXII played to a 1-1 draw when they faced newly promoted Malaysia Super League side PKNS FC at the MBPJ Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Though the match was played on a soggy and heavy pitch due to the wet weather in Kuala Lumpur, the LIONSXII, who will make their Malaysian Super League debut on January 10, emerged with most of the credit after holding a disciplined PKNS outfit.

Substitute Khairul Nizam, who replaced Isa Halim in the second half, scored for the LIONSXII in the 52nd minute after good approach play with strike partner, Agu Casmir.

PKNS replied almost instantly through a penalty after an unintentional Baihakki Khaizan handball. New PKNS signing Michael Nicoise converted the resulting penalty to bring his side back on level terms.
