Bojan Hodak’s side look destined for victory but couldn’t hold on.
Malaysia Cup holders Kelantan started their defence of the trophy with a frustrating 1-1 draw against Kedah in Group C on Tuesday.
The Red Warriors are favourites to triumph in the tournament but were denied an opening day victory thanks to Damion Stewart’s 85th minute header rescuing a surprise point for their Malaysian Super League rivals.
Mohd Badhri bin Mohd Radzi had given Bojan Hodak’s side a deserved ninth minute lead but their inability to put the game beyond doubt came back to haunt them at the death.
