Top eight target for Sabahawks Juniors

New Sabah Times

KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Juil Nuatim has urged his charges to fight till the end in their quest for a place in the quarter-finals of the President’s Cup challenge 2013. The Sabahawks Juniors team manager said they must not give up hope, even if it is a slim one, insisting that in football, anything can happen. “We must not stop trying.

We have to go on. We have another six more matches to play, and if we do well in all those matches, I believe we still have a good chance of making the top eight,” said Juil yesterday. The Sabahawks Juniors are currently in 10th place in the 18-team standings on 38 points, six behind Penang, who occupy the last slot for the quarterfinals.

 Ninth placed Negeri Sembilan are level on points with the Sabahawks Juniors, but stay ahead on better goal difference. Sabahawks Juniors take on Perlis at the Likas Stadium at 4.15pm today before their trip to Selangor on June 20. Upon their return, they would host Terengganu on June 24 followed by another home tie against Armed Forces three days later.

Then play their last away tie against Tengku Mahkota Ismail Sports School of Johor on July 1 before concluding their challenge at home against Sarawak on July 4. Today, the Sabahawks Juniors will have their head coach on the bench after missing their last two games against Johor and Penang due to work commitment.

 Justin will have all his players available for options, except Jenius Karib, who is out on suspension. “The players must try their very best and must go all out to get the points in order for us to cling on to our slim hope,” said Juil.
