Redemption mode for Pahang

August 25, 2014

Pahang are on a mission to redeem themselves against Felda United at the Selayang Stadium on Tuesday.

Felda went top of the Malaysia Cup Group A standings after coming from behind to defeat Pahang 3-2 at the Darul Makmur Stadium on Saturday.

The Elephants coach Zainal Abidin Hassan insist there was little need to shake things up but the players must stay focussed at all times. He lamented the lack of concentration, which allowed Felda to comeback twice in the game before securing three points.

He also said Pahang do not need a special plans to counter the threat posed by Zah Rahan Krangar, who pulls the strings from midfield for Irfan Bakti Abu Salim’s side.

“We need to redeem ourselves. We have to be more polished and organised,” said Zainal.

“Strategy wise, there would be a slight change but alarm bells do not have to ring after the weekend’s loss. Playing wise, were were okay but we missed chances and were made to pay by silly mistakes.

“I don’t need a special plan for Krangar. Our midfield is capable of keeping him tight. Even on Saturday, it was not him who unlocked our defence but rather miscommunications in our defence.”

Felda lead the group on seven points followed by Pahang (six points), JDT II (three) and LionsXII (one).
