MELAKA, Feb 28 – Penang head coach Jacksen F. Tiago said they have to tighten their defence against Perak when the two teams clash in a Super League match on Saturday. The coach from Brazil said the Penang players need to be more focused when defending so that the Panthers can dictate the game.
He said that the game tonight would have been better if the players were focused. He said the players had also made many mistakes, particularly in the second half. He said this after Penang drew 2-2 against Police in a Super League match at Hang Jebat Stadium here.
Penang are fifth in the Super League table with four points from three matches, scoring six goals and letting in four goals. Tiago said he believes in squad rotation for each match and will do the same against Perak at City Stadium, Penang. He said he have to replace some players as they may be tired. Meanwhile, he also added that they have to pick the defenders who can have an impact on the team.
