The Golden Deers dominated the match but managed just two goals.
Kelantan coach Bojan Hodak bemoaned his side’s feeble finishing after the shock 3-2 defeat to Negeri Sembilan in the Malaysia Cup.
Despite the negative result the Golden Deers bossed the game, having eighteen shots on goal, to Negeri’s had only six, but struggled to break down their determined opponents and surprisingly left Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium empty handed.
And Hodak was unhappy with the shortcomings in attack, tell Goal: “We created a lot of chances, more than they had, but I admit that we failed to finish it. It is our biggest problem right now.”
The Croatian was also displeased with Kelantan’s sloppy defending that saw them concede three goals for the first time since May when they were beaten 4-2 by Terengganu in the FA Cup semifinals.
“Today our defence were too shaky and we’ve given them too much space. I understand that this is the fourth games in ten days, some of our key players were tired,” he added.
“But in the end of the day, if you don’t take your chances, you’ll be punished. It is a good lesson for us.”
Kelantan, one of the favourites to lift the Malaysia Cup, are currently third in Group D and must win both of their remaining games to ensure progression to the knock-out phase.
