Mohd Izham Tarmizi says JDT need to step up their game against Kelantan after their shock defeat to Armed Forces on Tuesday. - S.S. Kanesan/The Star
PETALING JAYA: Leaders Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) are wary of party poopers Kelantan in their penultimate Super League match at the Larkin Stadium tonight.
Last season, Kelantan spoilt the party for JDT in the FA Cup final, winning 1-0 at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil to deny the club side their first-ever silverware.
JDT lead the 12-team standings with 38 points, while Selangor trail by a point with two matches remaining.
JDT goalkeeper Mohd Izham Tarmizi said they need to raise their game against Kelantan after suffering a shocking 2-1 defeat to Armed Forces on Tuesday.
“We were demoralised after losing to Forces on Tuesday. Luckily, Kelantan did us a favour by beating Selangor,” said Izham yesterday.
“However, we can’t expect any more favours at this crucial stage of the league. We are just a step away from the Super League crown. We cannot afford any more slip-ups and need to win this match.
“I am down with fever and hope to recover in time for this game. I have missed a day’s training because of it but I don’t think my form will be affected by the fever,” added Izham.
JDT will be without skipper Mohd Aidil Zafuan Abdul Razak and leftback Mohd Daudsu Jamaluddin. Both are suspended for the match.
Fakri received stitches on his head while Farisham broke his nose in the clash against Selangor.
