PETALING JAYA: After two straight losses, Sarawak United are out to get back to winning ways against a side who have not won since April – Petaling Jaya City.
The Golden Hornbills take on the Phoenix at the State Stadium in Kuching tonight and are expected to worsen the Klang Valley side’s woes.
Sarawak were beaten in their last two away games against Sabah (0-1) and Terengganu (0-1) but were praised for their fighting spirit.
Centreback Stuart Wark said the positives taken from both games will be the motivation for them to beat PJ City.
“It’s a must-win game at home for us and getting three points will push us a little further from PJ City in the standings,” said the 32-year-old Wark, a former Felda United and Terengganu player.
“PJ City always work hard, and we have to do the same to beat them.
“Our home record hasn’t been great but as a team, we have improved a lot.’’
Sarawak are 10th in the league with 13 points from 16 matches, while PJ City are 11th with 12 points from 15 games.
