naked Kpah Sherman’s brace was enough to give Terengganu FC (TFC) three full points as they beat Sarawak United 1-0 in Super League action at the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium, Gong Badak some time ago.
Realizing that a win is essential to improve their position in the league standings, TFC manager Nafuzi Zain made several changes to his starting line-up.
He listed the goalkeeper, Suhaimi Husin, midfielders, Azalinullah Mohamed Alias and Hakimi Abdullah and defenders, Arif Fadzilah Abu Bakar and Azarul Nazarith Azhar.
Nafuzi’s play looked to be paying off as TFC started strongly with an early try through Manuel Ott in the 11th minute.
However, with TFC often pressing the opposition defence, Gonzalo Soto almost broke the deadlock for Sarawak United in the 30th minute, but his header went wide of the left corner of the goal.
Continuing into the second half, TFC introduced agile winger Faisal Halim and removed Hakimi Abdullah to add sting to the attack.
However, the Peteh side were still at a loss to overcome the goal despite having the best chance in the 58th minute through Ott’s shot.
TFC’s continued efforts finally paid off when Faisal’s cross from the right of Sarawak United’s goal was headed home by Sherman in the 71st minute.
The only goal remained until the final whistle, ensuring that TFC went home with three valuable points.
