August will test Pahang’s resolve as Super League title contenders with seven matches.
Head coach Zainal Abidin Hassan refuses to think about the title but being in pole position in the standings, winning their first Super League title in 11 years is an inevitable topic.
“I don’t want the us to get ahead of ourselves,” said Zainal.
“Let’s just think of Sime Darby and take each game as it comes. We must keep winning matches.
“Sime Darby are fighting to stay in the Super League and that is something we must be cautious of. I will not take them lightly despite the club’s winless season thus far.”
Pahang sit atop the Super League standings with Johor Darul Takzim trailing by two points.
Pahang also have an AFC Cup quarterfinal first leg tie but Zainal is glad the match only takes place after the Super League finale on August 22.
