Rhinos out to prove critics wrong

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah will be out to prove the critics wrong when they play host to Police in a Group C Malaysia Cup challenge here at the Likas Stadium tonight (Saturday).

The Rhinos who have suffered the agony of losing their lead in the dying minutes of almost every match they have played are out to show that they are a much improved side now.

Team manager, Rahman Zakaria said they will win the three crucial points when they take on the Police.

Sabah who are currently leading Group C with 10 points will be out to continue their unbeaten streak since the campaign started last month.

"I am optimistic about securing a win against Police," he said, adding, "we will be playing at home and that gives me and the team confidence to deliver."

"I just hope they would maintain their form and momentum of play as these are the main keys to success," Rahman added.

Over the last few days, the players have undergone some gruelling training sessions under coach Drago (Mamic), he said.

"Although there will be no changes in the line-up the strategy will be a bit different compared to the last match against Pahang last weekend, " he said.

He said since the team started winning matches, starting with Perak and Sarawak, all the players have shown strong commitment and that their morale is at a peak.

"All of them (players) are now more confident and eager to deliver all the points," he said, adding, "with attitudes like that there should be no problems when we enter the second round next week." "From now on I just hope the players will not be over confident," he added.

Sabah's probable line-up: Ronny Harun, Jeevanathan a/l Gunasekaran (GK), Sylvester Sindih, Ahmad Tharmini Saiban, Charles Obi, S. Sunder, Rosdin Wasli, Chow Chee Wing, Henry Soimpon, Henry Parsi and Bobby Gonzales.
