Kilanas FC are hoping to improve on last season's showing despite not having a single training session yet this season.

"We haven't had the chance to do any training due to the weather conditions," the club's assistant manager Emzah Chuchu told The Brunei Times ahead of their DST Super League campaign.

"Also, some of our players have not been able to make it because of work commitments," he said, adding that "the aim for this season is to do better than we did last year and our strategy is to play attractive football."

"We only have two new faces playing for us this season.

"Sadly, we lost Kurmin Awg Hj Bini who was part of last month's Southeast Asian (SEA) Games squad in Myanmar after having to withdraw due to an injury," continued Emzah.

Making their debut in the league during the 2012-2013 season, Kilanas FC finished ninth in the 10-team table.

Kilanas FC recorded four points from one win, one draw and seven losses, their only win coming against Najip FC, who they beat 7-1.

Najip FC were at the bottom of the table with nine losses last season.

Kilanas FC's sole draw came when they played out a 3-3 stalemate when they met Jerudong FC, who finished ahead of them with nine points.

Kilanas FC were set to start this season against Majra United today but the game was pushed back to a later date because of bad weather.

The National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) announced on Thursday that the DST Super League and 2014 DST Premier League matches would be postponed this weekend because of the unsatisfactory pitch conditions resulting from days of continuous rain.

Four other DST Super League teams will also miss their opening games.

Also set for today was the clash between the Royal Brunei Police Force Sports Council (MS PDB) and Wijaya FC at the Berakas Sports Complex.

Liang Lumut Recreational Club (LLRC) will miss out their meeting with Najip FC at the Arena Field on Seria at 4pm tomorrow.

The eight-team DST Premier League table that was set to see all squads compete this weekend will only see Brunei Shell Recreation Club Football Team (BSRC FC) and Tunas FC go head-to-head at the Tutong Sports Complex at 4pm tomorrow.

Setia Perdana were scheduled to play Perkasa at the Berakas Sports Complex while Kota Rangers were set to take on Rimba Star at the Balapan Track and Field yesterday at 8.15pm as the season opening games.

Lun Bawang were booked in to face off with IKLS at the Temburong Sports Complex at 3pm tomorrow.

QAF FC drew 2-2 against Jerudong FC in the DST Super League opener on Tuesday at the Balapan Track and Field at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.

Jerudong FC's Mohd Julremi Hj Zaini was the season's first goal scorer after knocking one in during the 26th minute - but he also received the season's first red card after a dangerous tackle just four minutes from the full-time whistle.
