Midfielder Azidan Sarudin believes Pahang will soon find their rhythm after poor showings in the final third in recent matches.
The Elephants visit Armed Forces at the Paroi Stadium with a need to collect all three points or risk dropping further from the top. Pahang sit third from bottom in the standings and are three points away from leaders Felda United.
Azidan insists there was no need to push the panic button just yet based on previous seasons.
“Pahang warms up late. It’s been like that for a couple of season already. I guess we need to be put in a tough position before we start to comeback,” said Azidan.
“Our attack is a bit blunt. The goals are not flowing. I’m not saying the strikers are not doing their job but I mean everyone are missing chances.
Azidan stressed the need to be cautious as the hosts are desperate to collect points after only picking one point in the opening four league matches.
At the same time, he hopes Pahang no longer show jitters from the shooting incident at skipper Razman Roslan’s house on Wednesday.
Razman escaped unharmed as shots were fired at his house past midnight.
