The Red Warriors are currently one point clear of second-placed LIONSXII after recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Selangor last Friday, and will be hoping for maximum points in their remaining two games in hand to build a commanding lead before their title rivals are in action again.
First up for Kelantan will be a tricky trip to the Tuanku Abdul Rahman Stadium on Tuesday, where they will take on a Negri side looking to bounce back from Saturday's 2-1 defeat to PKNS FC and bolster their top-five prospects.
Perak, who weren't in action over the weekend, will look to tighten their grip on third place when they entertain PKNS in Ipoh, aware that defeat could potentially see them fall behind Selangor, who entertain Kedah at the Shah Alam Stadium.
Kedah, who are currently second from bottom, are desperate to stay preserve their Super League status as avoid the drop, as they did last season.
"It will be a painful experience if Kedah have to play in the Premier League next season," Hijau-Kuning assistant coach Radzi Din told The Star.
"Coach Wan Jamak Wan Hassan and I are telling the players to stay positive to pull off the great escape by winning our remaining matches.
"We need to strengthen the porous defence and add firepower up front."
Peter Butler will be hoping his Terengganu side can arrest an alarming run of form when they host already-relegated Kuala Lumpur at the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium.
The Turtles have failed to pick up a win in their last four games and were uncharacteristically lacklustre in their 2-1 loss to Kedah at the weekend.
At the bottom end of the table, Sabah travel to Johor FC in what is looming as a crucial relegation battle, while T-Team will aim to edge away from the danger zone with a win at seventh-placed Sarawak.
