Worrying signs as Rhinos continue winless streak


Kota Kinabalu: Sabah's 1-2 away loss to KL Plus FC in the Premier League on Tuesday saw them remain third in the standings.

The loss was Sabah's third in their league campaign and now have 25 points from six wins and seven draws scoring 22 goals and conceding 15. In the match against KL Plus, Sylvester Sindih scored the only goal for the visitors.

However, the Rhinos are now 12 points behind league leaders PDRM who narrowly beat Kuala Muda Naza 1-0 also on Tuesday while UPB-MyTeam remain second on 32 points.

After three consecutive draws against Kuala Muda, Kelantan (both in the Premier League) and Perlis (FA Cup), it was hoped that the team would bounce back and at least return home with a point, but it was not to be.

The players may be burnt-out from playing too many games in a short period of time with the match against KL Plus FC being Sabah's sixth this month alone.

The form they are in at the moment will definitely raise concerns among fans as to whether the team has got what it takes to be promoted to the Super League next season.

Goals from Charles Obi seems to be drying up and this could be attributed to the team's over-dependency on the Nigerian. It may be time for coach Drago Mamic to drill the other players in target practice, lessening the burden on Obi, who is the second highest goal scorer in the league with 11 goals.

Sabah's next match will be in the Malaysia Cup where they will face PDRM for a slot in the quarterfinals.
