Crocs told to keep up momentum


Zaki to stick with ‘all-out attack’ approach against Harimau

FIRST HOME GAME: Sarawak’s players during a training session at State Stadium.

KUCHING: Sarawak should not rest on its laurel if they want to get a favourable result against Harimau Muda at State Stadium today.

Head coach Mohd Zaki Sheikh Ahmad warned his players that there would be no room for complacency as Harimau Muda were among the team to look out in the league this season.

To counter Harimau Muda, Zaki is likely to stick to his ‘all-out attack’ approach that had worked out well last week against Pulau Pinang at Batu Kawan.

“The attacking game option led by Zamri Morshidi and Bobby Gonzales showed some promising results. The combination worked well against Pulau Pinang last week (4-0 win) but still rooms for improvement to the attacking force,” he said.

He added that he was satisfied with the performance of both strikers but also gave credits to his defence line.

“Normally the defence would be the weakest line in the team but for now I can see that they are beginning to play as a unit.”

He reiterated that Harimau Muda were the second tier to the national team and therefore Sarawak might not find it easy to crack the nut even though playing at home ground.

Zaki hoped fans would rally behind the squad as it would be the first home match for the Ngap Sayot team.

The Crocs will have another home game against PP SDM Navy on Feb 14 .

Sarawak now top the Premier League table, collecting three points, scoring four goals to date and has yet to be conceded.
