Celebrations over, back to the grind

June 10, 2014

PAHANG’S celebtation over winning the FA Cup last Saturday has to come to an abruot end as it is time to switch their attention to the Super League title as the league moves to its final lap.

The Elephants have to have their feet firm on the ground as they approach their final turn to the League starting with their match against Armed Forces tonight at the Selayang Stadium.
Though Zainal Abidin Hassan’s men lost their last league outing, 4-1, at home to Terengganu, the team went on to boot favoured Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) in the FA Cup return semifinal leg and before defeating Felda United 2-1 in the final.
Pahang visit struggling Armed Forces at the Selayang Stadium today, hoping to keep up with the top two teams, Selangor and JDT, who play Terengganu (away) and Sime Darby (home) respectively.

The Tok Gajah squad sit fourth in the league in 29 points, five behind Selangor. JDT

who have 32 points while Terengganu are third with 31 points.
On the form book,  Pahang should nick this but B. Satiananthan’s charges are in desperate need of points.

Armed Forces,  who are adamant they would not be relagated, sit second from last with 15 points,  two shy of the safety zone.


after their FA Cup victory may have their morale bubbling with confidence, but they could also be tired and still elated with the FA Cup success – their third trophy in seven months (Malaysia Cup and Charity Shield). Zainal must have a task time reminding his team to stay focused.
Pahang could still become league winners if JDT and Selangor drop points.

A strong finish by Pahang will also serve as a good stepping stone as they move to defending the Malaysia Cup after the League.
