The Red Warriors play Selangor at the Bukit Jalil Stadium on Tuesday, where coach Peter Butler will be looking for a second consecutive league win, which would go some way to appeasing the Kelantan fans who have been critical of the side lately.
Butler will be buoyed by the display his charges put in at the weekend against last season's runners-up, after Norshahrul Idlan Talaha and Mohd Badri Mohd Radzi helped them on their way to a convincing win, although they had to endure a late scare when Abdul Manaf Mamat pulled one back.
Selangor coach Irfan Bakti is also under pressure after his side fell to a 2-0 loss to PKNS FC, a result which saw them slide to 8th in the table.
Their performance was so poor that new signing Ramez Dayoub even gave his team-mates an on-field team talk before the start of the second half, leading to rumours some players had held a meeting in the dressing room right after the game.
However, Irfan was quick to dispel suggestions there was discord in the team.
"The players' spirits dropped after conceding the first goal [against PKNS] and it took some time for them to get back into the game," Irfan told The Star.
"Ramez is an excellent professional and he was just trying to motivate the team, and there's nothing wrong with that."
Terengganu coach Mat Zan Mat Aris has demanded his players show hunger in their upcoming home game against Kedah, after watching them put in a disjointed performance against Kelantan.
"[Against Kelantan], we left a lot of space in midfield and literally let our opponents attack us," Mat Zan said. "Kelantan exploited the extra space and got two valuable goals before we scored late in the game.
"We let ourselves and the fans down. I had expected a better display from a team who finished second in the league last season.
"I want to see the hunger for glory from the players, but right now I cannot see that."
LIONSXII head into their away game against Perak on a high, having recorded an impressive 3-1 win over Negri Sembilan at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
Particularly impressive in that game was striker Sufian Anuar, who provided a spark the Singapore outfit had been missing so far this season, and coach V. Sundramoorthy is likely to give him the nod once again.
Negri themselves will be looking to bounce back from the loss when they host PKNS.
Elsewhere, Sabah entertain basement club Kuala Lumpur, Felda United take on 6th-placed T-Team, while Johor FC entertain Sarawak.
