KOTA KINABALU: Coach Justin Ganai will stay on as Sabah's coach. Last night, the Rhinos went on a goal-scoring spree to whip Terengganu 5-0 at the Likas Stadium.
On Monday, Justin had threatened to quit as coach should his team fail to win the match. The players obviously heard his threat loud and clear to register their biggest win of the season to move up two places from 11th to ninth spot.
International striker Zainizam Marjan, who was unimpressive in previous matches, scored a hat-trick while Australian Robert Gaspar scored a brace.
Zainizam showed his mettle by scoring in the 30th, 76th and 90th minutes. The Kota Belud-born striker could have scored more if not for some good saves by Terengganu goalkeeper Md Syamsuri Mustaffa.
Gaspar was on target in the 11th and 36th minutes.
