Draw experience from previous campaigns

October 16, 2015

Zainal Abidin Hassan called his players to draw experience from their previous two campaigns in order to secure berth in the Malaysia Cup last eight.

Pahang top group D with six points, followed by PKNS and Penang on four and Police (two). With three matches left to play Zainal feels it is still anyone’s game in the group.

The Elephants welcome PKNS at the Darul Makmur Stadium Stadium on Saturday. Pahang won the earlier fixture 2-0 in Shah Alam.

“I want the players to like hungry like in the previous two years when we won the Malaysia Cup,” said Zainal.

“Everyone wants to be the top eight teams into the next round and they all want a crack against the defending champions. We can’t take things easy.”

Zainal welcomed the long break as Pahang’s match against Police on Oct 3 was called off due to the haze, leaving Pahang without a match for the last three weeks.

“We made a lot of silly mistakes in the earlier matches and I have worked on this during the break. I’m hoping to see my players be more tough and fight for every ball.

“They must not take their eyes of the ball,” he said.
