JOHOR BARU: Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) are hoping to unleash their Argentine star player Pablo Aimar against PKNS at Larkin Stadium on Friday.
Team manager Bojan Hodak said that the former Valencia player’s left heel injury has healed.
“He (Aimar) is getting better but we will see if Aimar is ready to play against PKNS,” said Hodak after JDT’s training session at the Padang Seri Gelam here on Thursday.
Hodak also said that JDT would change their approach in the game against PKNS, which he described as an important one for the Southern Tigers.
He pointed out that in the last couple of games, JDT dropped valuable points especially when playing at home.
“In the last couple of games, the players kept passing the ball around but did not penetrate into the opposition’s side. To be honest, many teams seem to be on the defensive when they play against us ... but this should not be an excuse.
“If we want to challenge for trophies, then we should get maximum points and we should do it starting with PKNS,” he said.
Hodak added that PKNS will be hard to beat as they have a strong squad and are playing well, especially defensively, but he has confidence in his players.
JDT are sixth in the Super League standings with 15 points after 10 games.
