Don't underestimate Melaka United, KDA FC coach Aidil Sharin tells players

29/04/2021 07:43 PM

ALOR SETAR, April 29 -- Kedah Darul Aman FC (KDA FC) players have been warned not to underestimate the injury and suspension-hit Melaka United (MU) when the teams meet in a Super League match at the Hang Jebat Stadium, Melaka tomorrow.

Kedah coach Aidil Sharin Sahak said MU still held the upper hand as they will be on home turf.

“It doesn’t matter who plays because they will still start the match tomorrow with 11 players. Remember, they beat Perak FC 1-0 last Sunday, so their confidence will have been boosted,” he told reporters at the Sultan Abdul Halim airport near here before flying off to Melaka today.

Melaka United FC (MUFC) chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Saiful Mat Sapri was previously reported to have said that several reserve players would be fielded to replace those suspended and injured, including the likes of Sony Norde, Alex Goncalves, Mohd Akmal Mohd Zahir, Wan Amirul Afiq Abd Rahman and Khairul Anwar Shahrudin.

In addition, Aidil Sharin is still unsure about his own tea’s lineup for tomorrow’s clash as the decision regarding Fazrul Danel Mohd Azman and Rodney Celvin’s red cards would only be known tomorrow.

“We still do not know if they will be cleared to play and that affects our game plan... anyway, we are prepared for all eventualities.

“Whatever the decision is tomorrow, we will not use it as an excuse. I believe that whoever plays against MU will give his best,” he said.
