Penang Expecting Surprises In Malaysia Cup Group Matches

GEORGE TOWN, Aug 8 (Bernama) -- Penang are expecting the element of surprise in the 2014 Malaysia Cup matches at the Group C stage against new Super League champion, Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT), Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) and 2013 Malaysia Cup runners-up Kelantan beginning Aug 13.

Football Association of Penang (FAP) president Datuk Seri Nazir Ariff Mushir Ariff considered the balloting result to be positive as it could provide the yardstick on the actual strength of the Panther squad before the coming Malaysia League competition.

"All the teams are from the Super League, they are not familiar with our style of play...so, we have an advantage there," he told reporters at the FAP Aidilfitri dinner, here last night.

He said Penang were comfortable playing as the 'under dog', in fact, the squad was now focusing on its mental preparation besides the intensive training twice daily including during the last Ramadan month.
