Speaking to the press after the match, Zaquan chose to highlight his teammates' contribution in the match instead.
"I have to say that my teammates contributed to the win too. In football all eleven players must work together and without them I could not play well.
"I want to keep this momentum and maintain my consistency. I cannot play well in one game and put in a subpar performance in the next. That's what's important to me," said the former JDT and Perak player.
When pointed the fact that the Hawks have defeated both the big sides (the other club being JDT) they have faced this season, the forward admitted that his team are motivated by these big games.
"We knew we were facing formaidable sides and we wanted to match them. We didn't take tonight's match lightly. That's also what happened when we faced JDT earlier.
"But what matters is our consistency. We can't play well only against strong sides, and that's what we need to work on after this. There's still a long way to go in the league," explained Zaquan.
