T-Team coach unhappy with team's inconsistent form

Just when his spirit soared high after securing a win over 32-time Malaysia Cup champions Selangor last week, along came Kuala Lumpur to bring it back down to earth three days later.

T-Team coach Yunus Alif said he was at wits' end trying to figure out how his team -- who dominated the match almost from start to finish -- lost 2-1 to KL.

"This must be fate as every time we beat a strong team like Selangor, we then lose to a far less formidable team such as KL.

"It could not have been a coincidence as we have beaten Selangor three times this season but we have suffered the same number of losses at the hands of KL," said Yunus.

Yunus said strikers Norfarhan Mohamad, Fitri Omar and Indra Putra Mahayuddin could have scored at least a goal each on Saturday.

"But they wasted their chances and our only goal in the game came from our left-back Norfazly Alias.

"In fact, Norfazly has scored both our goals in the Malaysia Cup and our strikers need to find their scoring boots fast if we want to continue with our cup run."

The coach said T-Team have no choice but to win big over Police at Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium in Kuala Terengganu today.

"I have a feeling it is going to be a three-horse race to the quarter-finals in Group D and teams with a healthy goal difference will have an advantage.

"Police showed they were no pushovers, especially in the first-half against Selangor and we have to be very careful not to get caught as that will spell doom for us," he said.
