Kelantan Warriors must step up performance
Last Update: 06/10/2019
KOTA BHARU, Oct 6 -- The Kelantan Warriors need to step up their performance as they will be facing a fierce challenge in the second round of the Sepak Takraw League (STL) which starts on Oct 11.
The players must not be complacent, and instead, keep improving their performances in each match, manager, Ahmad Syazwan Muhammad Hassan.
"Every player has to be consistent if they want to top the league this year. They have to rectify existing weaknesses in order to improve the quality of their game and win," he said when contacted by Bernama, here today.
The Kelantan Warriors currently stood in fourth place on the STL chart with 12 points from six wins and three loses.
Ahmad Syazwan noted that the team bounced back after a 2-0 defeat to Perak Bison in the third week of the competition held at the MABA Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.
"The opponent (Perak Bison) exposed many of our defensive weaknesses and, after that, the coaching staff focused more on the tossing of the ball from 'apit kanan' (killer or attacker)," he said.
He added that the management also praised Thailand's import 'tekong' (server), Apirak Promanee, who was now more compatible and created a good combination with national 'apit kiri' (feeder or tosser), Aidil Azwawi and the team's killer, Naim Izani Wan Noor.
"Such traits should be imbued in the team in order to earn points in every match," he said.
