The Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) are aware of the tough challenge that awaits them in the play off match against T-Team to win the only remaining slot in the Super League this season.
In fact, the match scheduled to be held at the Perak Stadium Saturday night would give a preview of ATM capabilities, as the Malaysia Cup runner up in 2012, with players comprising its own personnel, without the presence of any top or import players.
On paper, ATM, which are coached by Azhar Abdullah, seemed dwarfed as compared to T-Team, which are coached by former Indonesian national coach, Rahmad Darmawan.
“We do not expect any miracles because our players this season comprise our own staff and local players.
“But we will give 100 percent commitment to retain in the Super League,” he told reporters here Friday.
Meanwhile, Rahmad said his players were mentally and physically prepared for the play off match tomorrow.
“Alhamdulillah (All praises be to Allah), all of our players, including imported ones, were free from injuries and can be fielded tomorrow,” he said.
Nevertheless, he said they would not underestimate ATM capabilities even though they comprised only local players.
“ATM have vast experience in Super League and we still have to be very careful,” he added. – BERNAMA
