'Be wary of Kuantan FA threat'

Daily Express

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Rhinos technical director Mike Mulvey called on the players to be wary of Pahang Kuantan FA's threat in their Premier League clash tonight (Friday) at the Likas Stadium at 8.15pm. "Whenever you are playing anybody who is needing points as they are at the moment and I believe they are second from bottom of the table standings right now, it is always a dangerous game.

 "So the players must focus and concentrate, and give everything for the Sabah shirt." The 52-year-old said on Wednesday that the win last Friday was very good for the fans. "I think people who understand football will see that there was good football played and there was some good combination for the goals.

 "There is a great spirit among the players as well and we demand the same on Friday. "People also have to be mindful to the fact that we scored four goals last week and I don't think the team have done that this season and could have scored a few more as well. "The idea is to play good football where everybody contributes and I want to see more on Friday.

We need to give the fans something to shout for and send them home happy." He added that he is not too worried on the absence of Abdoulaye Faye and his partner in the centre of defence Hardy Parsi where both are nursing groin injuries. "Aby (Abdoulaye Faye) is out for a while, Hardy (Parsi) is also doubtful and I am still waiting for a report on him.

 "Well, you always want to play your best players but the key thing is that with a player missing it will give another player the opportunity to come in and I hope they will take their chances." On what he think of the current Sabah team, he said: "I think from what I have seen, there is a great endeavour that is people willing to work hard, players willing to learn.

 "I have the knowledge to improve the team to play quality football, but there is a long way to go for this squad as the essence of football is to play firstly with your head. "We are much to the heart at the moment. More training are essential as we need to be more intelligent on the field."

Meanwhile, Faye left for England on Tuesday to seek treatment for his injury. He told Express Sports that he decided to return to England because the specialist based in Bolton, Manchester has always treated him. "It is only a groin injury and not serious. It just happens that we will have a short break after the game on Friday so I took the opportunity to go back and see someone who knows me well."

 He assured the fans that he will be back in two weeks time and should be ready for the next match. "I will continue to train in England. I am a professional and I know my job and I will always give the best for my team." He is confident that the team will win in his absence against Kuantan FA tonight. "The team are playing well at the moment. Of course I am disappointed not to play but I believe the players will be up to the task and win for the fans."
