Mathematical chance for Sabahawks Juniors

New Sabah Times

KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Juil Nuatim has challenged his Sabahawks Juniors side to come out all with guns blazing against Sarawak in a President’s Cup tie at the Likas Stadium today. The Sabahawks Juniors must win the tie in order to stand any chance of making it into the quarter-finals. They are currently in ninth in the 18-teams standings on 50 points, and two points behind Kedah, who occupy the last slot for the last eight.

Seventh placed Negeri Sembilan is three points ahead of Sabahawks Juniors. And with the preliminary round stage heading into its last fixtures of the season, the Sabahawks Juniors will only make it through if they beat Sarawak while Kedah fumbles at the hand of Penang in another tie playing at Darul Aman Stadium in Alor Star. Another scenario is that if Negeri Sembilan lose to Bukit Jalil Sports School at MSN Field D in Bukit Jalil, and Kedah draw with Penang, Sabahawks Juniors will still make it if they beat Sarawak by at least 11 goals.

 “We must go out there and try to win with as many goals as possible. We have got nothing to lose,” said Juil. “We don’t have to worry about the outcome of the other games, because it is more important that we do our part and win our match,” the Sabah team manager added. Juil said that they have all their top players available for the clash, and that he is expecting them to deliver victory.
