PETALING JAYA: The Red Giants, after the disappointing 0-1 defeat by Penang in the Charity Shield match in Batu Kawan, have pledged to get back to winning ways in front of their home fans against unpredictable Malacca at the Shah Alam Stadium tonight. Ironically, Malacca had beaten Penang last week.
Former international S. Sivaram said he was confident the team would deliver the three points for their fans as they still had a formidable side despite having lost several key players, who have opted out to move on to other teams this season.
The boys have been working hard in training and we should have no problem against Malacca.
We are not under-estimating our opponents but we simply have the material to win matches.
We did most of the attacking against Penang but we were unlucky not to put the ball into the net,'' said Sivaram yesterday.
Sivaram admitted that they have lost some depth in the squad but they would still pose a serious threat to their opponents.
You cannot write off Selangor just like that. We are committed to do our best and there is no reason why we cannot be among the teams contesting for titles,'' said Sivaram, who was a member of the team who won the Charity Shield and the Malaysia Cup for Selangor last season.
