Terengganu not worried about opponents in quarter finals

With assured qualification to the Malaysia Cup quarter-finals, Terengganu are not bothered as to who they will face in the knock-out stage.

Instead, coach Irfan Bakti said he was more concerned with the players’ consistency rather than worry about their future opponents. Their top priority is putting away Negri Sembilan in the last preliminary round match tonight.

“Victory against Negri is very important as we want to maintain our form. It is also a revenge mission as our opponents had beaten us in the first round in Paroi earlier this month,” said Irfan, who added that the team must make use of the advantage of playing at home.

Irfan said if the Turtles beat Negri to top Group B they would meet the second team in Group C and if they lost, Terengganu would clash with the champions of Group C.

“Our opponents will be either Kelantan or Felda United. Both are tough challenges,” said Irfan.

Irfan said he would field his strongest side against Negri as they aimed to get all three points.

“Every player will be playing tomorrow except midfielder Mazlizam Mohamad, who is injured,” he said.
