Don’s throw in the towel yet

June 13, 2014

Keep soldiering on is the message Pahang coach Zainal Abidin Hassan wants his players to adhere too. Once title contenders, Pahang have drop to fourth last month and have a seven point gap with Selangor (37) at the top of the Super League standings.

Second placed Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) is five points away while Terengganu has 31 points.

Pahang host Kelantan at the Darul Makmur Stadium on Saturday, needing a win to either close the gap to the top or overtake Terengganu, if not both, with just three matches left to play.

Selangor host lock horns with Armed Forces at the Shah Alam Stadium on Friday while Terengganu visit JDT.

“We must not drop further back. It’s disappointing to drop from the title race but we must avoid dropping further points and fall further back.
“The title race is far ahead but it not impossible. What we need to do is focus on game and collect maximum points.

“Kelantan are not going to sit back. They have players who can change matches at an instance and we have to very cautious,” Zainal Abidin.

The Red Warriors have failed to impress in the Super League again this season but just like last year, Kelantan could put together a late run to push into the top four.

George Boateng’s side would overtake the Elephants if they collect maximum points in Kuantan.  They have won three of their last five matches as opposed to Pahang’s sole win against Sime Darby back in April.
