PETALING JAYA: It will be a case of the little brother Terengganu FC II lending big brother Terengganu a helping hand as the Super League comes to an end this weekend.

On Saturday, Terengganu FC II have made it their personal mission to beat third-from-bottom Pahang at the Sultan Ismail Stadium in Kuala Terengganu in a bid to boost their senior side’s hopes of remaining in the Super League next season.

But Terengganu, bottom of the 12-team standings, will have to do their part as well if they want to survive the drop. They must then beat Penang to stand a chance of getting out of the relegation zone.

As things stand, five teams – Sarawak (21pts), Police (21pts), Pahang (20pts) Penang (19pts) and Terengganu (19pts) – are fighting to stave off relegation.

So, it’s clearly the last chance for Terengganu.

“We want to win this not just for ourselves, but we are also hoping to help Terengganu stay in contention,” said Terengganu FC II coach Rahmad Dharmawan.

The coach also wants to end the season on a winning note so as to salvage some pride after their exit from the Malaysia Cup semi-finals last Saturday. His side lost 3-0 to Selangor in the second leg of the semi-finals at the Sultan Ismail Stadium in Kuala Terengganu. The Red Giants advanced 5-1 on aggregate.

The Titans, however, will be without at least three key players – midfielders Dilshod Sharofetdinov of Uzbekistan and Makan Konate of Mali and defender Wan Ahmad Amirzafran Wan Nadris – due to injury problems.

But the 49-year-old Rahmad, who formerly coached Indonesia, is confident that he can find suitable replacements.
