KUALA TERENGGANU: T-Team hope to keep Kelantan in their thrall at the Sultan Ismail Stadium tonight.
The club side are proving to be the Red Warriors’ hoodoo team being undefeated in their last three meetings.
Prior to the weekend’s 1-1 stalemate in Kota Baru, T-Team had beaten Kelantan twice in the Super League last season.
And coach Yunus Alif intends to keep that proud record going.
“We won twice last year in Kuala Terengganu and Kota Baru. We intend to do the same again at our home turf,” he said.
“The team showed renewed vigour in attack last week and I want them to maintain that spirit and tenacity.
“We have the fans on our side and should make the most of it.”
Yunus was full of praise for the speed in which Brazilian midfielder Marco Tulio had settled into the team after just two matches.
“He played well on Saturday and created our equaliser. Marco will make a whole lot of difference once he hits top form,” he said.
Yunus reminded his players that a win over Kelantan could pave the way to success in the league.
“It will be the catalyst needed to launch a concerted bid for glory. The league is in its second stage and it’s time to step up.”
