PKNS wants to win more matches in Super League

Super League newcomers PKNS FC are a dismal 10th in the 14-team standings despite having lost only one match in their campaign. 

The former Premier League champions may have won only one of their nine matches to date, but seven of the other eight have ended in draws. 

Little wonder that other teams dread playing them as PKNS are draw specialists, who are ever so good at stonewalling their rivals. 

Head coach Abdul Rahman Ibrahim said the club should be proud of their achievements in denying the top teams victory. 

“It isn’t a bad result for a newly-promoted club side as so many teams find it impossible to beat us. The fact remains that we have lost only once in nine matches,” said Abdul Rahman. 

PKNS lost their opening game to Johor FC 2-1 on Jan 10 and have been unbeaten ever since.

Their only win was 2-0 against Selangor on Feb 11. The drawn matches were against Kelantan (1-1), Kedah (0-0), K. Lumpur (1-1), Sabah (2-2), Terengganu (1-1), N. Sembilan (1-1) and Perak (2-2). 

PKNS are scheduled to play struggling Felda United at the MBPJ Stadium in Kelana Jaya tomorrow. 

“I’m sure we will start winning in the coming matches,” said Abdul Rahman, who is looking to his strikeforce of Zambian Phillimon Chepita and local hotshot Rudie Ramli to show the way. 

The 31-year-old Chepita replaced injured French striker Dawood Nicoise on a short-term deal.

PKNS released Nicoise following an injury to his knee. But the Frenchman is recuperating in Kuala Lumpur and may be signed on again when the transfer window opens next month.
