M-League organiser Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) will be investigating the first leg FA Cup quarter-final match between Pahang and Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT), which was held at the Darulmakmur Stadium.

According to a brief statement by FMLLP on Sunday, hosts Pahang turned away the visiting fans and failed to play the Johor state anthem just before the match.

"FMLLP will obtain a full report from the match commissioner and the officials involved and will investigate the matter.

"If the allegations are proven true, FMLLP will take the appropriate action. There is no place in the new era of M-League for those who do not practice sportsmanship to the away teams and fans," the league organiser stated.
