Sarawak will play their first Premier League game for the new season tonight as they take on Northern lions Perlis away from home.

The team is expected to miss hardworking defender Dzulazlan Ibrahim who was injured during the friendly against Harimau Muda A, and pacy winger Ashri Chu Chu who is holding a long term injury.

On a positive note, the Crocs are set to debut their new players in the likes of influential midfielder Joseph Kallang Tie, Sabahans Ronny Harun, Mafry Ballang and Bobby Gonzalez, ex-Harimau Muda striker Ahmad Aminuddin Shaharudin, and last but not least import striker Ivan Babic.

The Crocs are expected to go for a win in their first game to ensure their fans would turn up in the thousands when they take on UiTM FC next Friday.
