Elephants can’t wait to get even with Panthers

PETALING JAYA: Revenge will be the fuel for Pahang when they square off against Penang in the Super League tomorrow.

The Elephants are still hurting from the 5-2 loss to the Panthers in their FA Cup quarter-final clash.

And Pahang coach Dollah Salleh will expect nothing less than a win as they seek to get even with Penang at the City Stadium in Georgetown.

Dollah, however, isn’t expecting a straightforward affair as he will be pitting his wits against his counterpart and former national teammate Zainal Abidin Hassan.

“Penang may be bottom of the league but that’s not a true reflection of their players’ capabilities. And with Zainal guiding them, they’re always capable of surprises,” said Dollah.

“Plus, they’re playing at home and we have our work cut out. Our players, though, are in high spirits as we have gone four games unbeaten.

“In our last match, we came back from 0-2 down to hold Melaka 2-2. The players showed character.”
