Pahang coach Zainal Abidin Hassan has told his players to be cautious of Police’s bite up front in Shah Alam tomorrow.
The Super League top of the table clash at the Shah Alam Stadium offers Pahang a chance to increase their two-point lead. Police, who have scored 23 goals in 10 matches, will go top with three points.
“Their attack is sharp so we cannot afford to lose concentration,” said Zainal.
“It’ll be great if we could pick up from where we left off. I put the players under a more demanding routine because of the long break. So far everyone is coping well.”
While Zainal has seen it all in Malaysian football, the match also bring a new experience – playing during Ramadhan.
“It’s a something new. I’ve played international football during the fasting month but not at club level,” he said.
“We have been training late at night in preparation for Ramadhan matches, so the players should be used to it to a certain extent… we’ll see how it is during match.”
