THE Indonesian fans will create a din at the Istora Senayan tonight but it will be sweet music to the home side when they play against South Korea for a place in the Thomas Cup final.

Indonesia's singles star Taufik Hidayat said that the support of their passionate fans would drive them to make up for the disastrous semi-final defeat by Denmark when they last hosted the Finals in 2004.

“We cannot allow this incident to happen again. We cannot be beaten on our home ground again,” said Taufik.
