Coach Zainal Abidin Hassan is keeping his fingers cross, the Elephants have shrugged off their goal scoring woes front of goal when the Super League resume tomorrow.
Pahang welcome Singaporean side LionsXII and need nothing but a win to improve their standings in the league. Pahang are 10th in the 12-team league after five matches.
“We are not in the right position. Although it is still early in the season, we can’t afford to let more points slip,” said Zainal.
“Our problem has been in front of goal. We have been working on it in training but I need to see it put to work during a competitive match. LionsXII are not an easy team to overcome. They have youth and pace and we have to keep them at bay from the midfield itself.”
Pahang have five points from a win, two draws and two defeats. Armed Forces (four points) and Sime Darby (one)
are below Pahang.
April will be challenging for Pahang as they face eight matches on three fronts – the Super League, FA Cup and AFC Cup.
Pahang take on Penang in the FA Cup semifinal on Tuesday at home and face South China and Yadanarbon in the AFC Cup.
“I need to keep all the players fit. It’s difficult because we don’t have big squad but I do have fighters in the team,” said Zainal.
