No changes to squad

KOTA KINABALU: The junior Rhinos’ head coach Rozlee Idris will be sticking to his winning side in search for their first away victory, taking on President’s Cup newcomers SDM Kepala Batas of Penang today.

He said that if there are any changes it would be on the tactical or technical aspect of the game as the squad that chalked up their first win last Sunday deserves to be retained!

“They have done considerably well, and there is no reason to change a winning side,” Rozlee said, referring to their 2-0 victory over UPB-MyTEAM of Perak.

Last time around on the road, they went down 1-0 to Johor FC in their opening game of the season.

But this time, Rozlee hopes his charges will be able to return home with at least one point.

“Unlike in home matches where we play more offensively, but in an away game, we have to be more defensive minded.

“However, it doesn’t mean that we will go into the battle to just settle for a draw because the main priority is to go for a win.

“But if we cannot achieve that then we must try to avoid defeat,” he said.

With Rozlee sticking to his winning side, that means, both Leopold Alphonso Otong and Selyvister Saini will be around to give the team the much needed boost.

The duo who featured for the senior side, played a crucial role in their victory over UPM-MyTEAM, especially Leopold, who set up the first goal and scored the second.

The 18-member squad left for the clash yesterday.
