The Turtles scraped a win over the line against Pahang last time out.
Terengganu coach E. Elavarasan has demanded his players turn in an improved performance against defending Malaysia Cup champions Kelantan in their next game.
The Turtles left it late to scrape a 2-1 home win over Pahang on Saturday with Ramadhan Zauwawi scoring with an injury time free-kick to earn their first three point haul of the competition at the fourth attempt.
Despite seeing his side claim a priceless victory and boost their hopes of qualifying for the knock-out stage, Elavarasan insists they were lucky The Elephants were so wasteful in front of goal.
“We played well last night and the win is really important as it still give us a chance to qualify for the quarterfinals,” he told Goal.
“It cannot be denied that Pahang had more opportunities to score but failed to do so. But this is football. The team who fails to take the advantage will be punished.
“However I still believe that Pahang is one of the favourites and strong teams in the group; same as Kelantan and Negeri Sembilan.”
Terengganu couldn’t have picked a better time to go up against Kelantan after they were upset by Negeri Sembilan in a five-goal thriller at the Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium.
