Singaporean Aidil Sharin Sahak is on the verge of leading his Kedah side to the Malaysia Cup final.
The Hijau-Kuning of Kedah are just a step away from heading into the finals after a 3-3 draw against Pahang at the Stadium Darul Aman Alor Setar on 19 October.
The match was played before the season’s highest attendance of almost 24,000 fans.
But with a tough tie away to Pahang in Kuantan to come to 26 October, Aidil is well aware that the task at hand will not be an easy one.
He said, “We managed to score the late equaliser. We didn’t settle down in the first 15 minutes, maybe it was because of the pitch. “I brought on Azamuddin (Akil) after trailing by two goals and our team spirit spurred us to draw level by half-time,” he said.
“We have to learn from what happened and work doubly hard than what we produced today. Tonight is over and we cannot dwell on it. What’s important is the next match and the fact that both teams are still in it. Pahang have the home advantage but we have to keep on believing and work hard,” he added.
In his first season in Kedah, Aidil has already lifted the Malaysian FA Cup after a 1-0 win over Perak in July.
Kedah finished the Malaysian Super League in fourth spot after Johor Darul Takzim, Pahang and Selangor.
