17 May 2015


On Saturday we were just seconds away from securing a place in the FA Cup final for 2015 but unfortunately we could not quite hang on in the dying seconds of the game against Kelantan. We faced an uphill battle from the 15th minute onwards when we were down to ten men, we showed great courage and determination to almost get there but on this occasion it was just not meant to me. Sometimes in football you win and sometimes you lose but the important thing is how we react. We have had a very gruelling schedule of games in recent weeks  and perhaps the heavy load combined with the travel across Asia took its toll. We are still in a fantastic position at the top of the league and have a round of 16 AFC Cup game on the horizon so we will remain positive and stick together until the last day of the season. There is still so much to play for this season.
