Dickson has faith in Elephants

October 18, 2014

Pahang import Dickson Nwakaeme insists his teammates are up to the mark to challenge Kedah in the Malaysia Cup semifinal first leg at the Darul Aman Stadium on Sunday.

He and centreback Damien Stewart are both suspended.

Nwakaeme believes the returning Matias Conti, also from suspension, will be raring to go after missing both legs of the quarterfinals.

“This is football. Sometime you play, sometime you have to sit out,” said Nwakaeme.

“The good thing is, I have a longer rest for the second leg and I’ll be raring to go in Kuantan. The rest of the team are capable of defeating Kedah too.

“Kedah have done so well to reach this stage. They were very impressive against Kelantan in the quarters, showing a fighting spirit to turn the tie around. We cannot take them lightly because they come from the second tier league.

“Backed by the home crowd, Kedah will come at us with confidence. We have to be very cautious,” he added.

Kedah overturned a 3-1 first leg deficit with a convincing 3-0 win over last year’s finalist Kelantan on October 10.
