Darul Ta’zim as­sis­tant coach in­sists his side must im­prove on their scor­ing rate

New Straits Times - - Sport -

AFC Cup.

On Tues­day, Darul Ta’zim went ahead through Ma­hali Ja­suli in the 30th minute with Safiq Rahim (34th), Brian Fer­reira (87th) and Mar­cos Antonio (90th) com­plet­ing the rout to pro­pel the team to the top of the group with a one-point lead over Global.

Coach Ben­jamin Mora made three changes to his team that thrashed Univer­siti Te­knoloji Mara (UiTM) 4-0 in last week’s FA Cup match with Amir­ul­hadi Yahya earn­ing his first start since the 2-1 de­feat to Perak in the Su­per League on Feb 18 following an in­jury to hold­ing mid­fielder Afiq Fazail.

“Amir­ul­hadi pro­duced a con­sis­tent per­for­mance. He started as a reg­u­lar this sea­son but lost his place to Afiq.

“It is good that Amir­ul­hadi has made use of the op­por­tu­nity to shine and I hope to see him im­prove.

“It was an im­pres­sive win to­day but we need to for­get about it as the play­ers need to shift their fo­cus to the FA Cup quar­ter-fi­nal first leg match against Pa­hang on April 1,” Is­mail added.


Darul Ta’zim’s Ah­mad Hazwan Bakri (cen­tre) is marked by Global FC play­ers at Larkin Sta­dium on Tues­day.
