Pahang right-back Matthew Davies has a feeling and it a comforting one to hear as the Elephants enter a crucial Malaysia Cup group match against Police today.
The Harimau Malaya star thinks the team have put behind defensive woes ard are ready to show that at the Shah Alam Stadium. He hopes a win against Police would be enough to see them through to the last eight.
“We have been really working hard on our defence over the last one week … more than ever. So, I feel we’ll get things right this time,” said the 20-year-old.
“It was painful to lose in such manner. I felt we were unlucky at times. Up front, there is a believe we can score goals and with Matias Conti back, things would be better I hope.
“It’s difficult playing Police with their four imports in attack but this is not the time to dwell too much on that. We have a job to do,” he said.
Pahang are second in group D on six points, one adrift of surprise leaders PKNS. Police have five points followed by Penang on four.
Despite back-to-back 4-1 defeats to Penang and PKNS, Pahang can still qualify for the last eight tonight with a win coupled with PKNS getting at least a point in Selayang.
