Manager confident of Indera SC’s chances against Menglait tonight

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

INDERA SC manager Rosdin Hj Abd Aziz believes his team is strong enough to edge Menglait in the fourth round of the DST FA Cup 2014 tonight.
If they triumph against Menglait at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas, two-time DST Super League defending champions Indera will go into the quarter-finals along with Kilanas FC, the Royal Brunei Armed Forces Sports Council (MS ABDB), the Royal Brunei Police Force Sports Council (MS PDB), Wijaya FC and Najip FC.
“There are no major changes in our team’s line-up, so the players are already compatible playing together... I can say the team’s condition is great and we have a good chance to make it into the quarter-finals,” said Rosdin.
Even though they have never played against Menglait, the manager said that they will not underestimate or overlook their opponent’s capabilities.
“We are not really sure about their game play and what their players can do, but from what I have heard so far, they are a pretty strong team,” he said.
“However, I believe we have the upper-hand."
“Our team is strongly disciplined and has a lot of experience playing at national and international levels."
“Five players from our team - Abd Khair Hj Basri, Md Khairul Anwar Abd Rahim, Mohd Fathurrahman Nizam Md Jaya, Mohd Zulkhairy Razali and Muhd Nur Ikwan Othman - recently represented the country at the 8th BIMP-EAGA (Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area) Friendship Games in Labuan, and their experience there will further help our team,” he added of the team that lost out on a bronze medal to Sarawak last week.
If Indera beat Menglait, they will meet Wijaya FC in the quarters on Sunday at the Berakas Sports Complex.
Tonight’s other game will see Brunei Shell Recreation Club (BSRC) meet QAF FC at the Berakas Sports Complex, with the winner to go up against MS PDB on Saturday in the quarter-finals at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex.
Meanwhile, the Belait-based Liang Lumut Recreational Club (LLRC) will compete against Jerudong FC at the Berakas Sports Complex tomorrow, with the winner of the match to meet Najip FC in the quarters at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas on Sunday.
The other quarter-final match will see Kilanas FC will go up against MS ABDB tomorrow at the Balapan Track and Field of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.
