Despite playing for the first time this season, Pahang's midfielder Mohd Hafiz Kamal proved that his coach's decision to play him in the second half was the right one. He scored two goals when he came on in the win against east-coast rivals Terengganu.
The 26-year-old midfielder came on for Amirulhadi in the 50th minute and scored two out of Pahang's three goals that night. Speaking to Sinar Harian, he was delighted that Dollah had faith in him.
"To receive the trust from my coach, I was determined to repay it with goals. Thankfully, I scored two goals and hopefully he will put me in the starting eleven for the upcoming games," said Hafiz Kamal.
Another Pahang player who praised his coach was the in-form striker Fauzi Roslan.
The striker, who has scored five goals this season said he was left clueless when Pahang wasted a lot of chances in the first half.
"However, when coach ordered us to raised our tempo in the second half, we played well and I am happy to continue scoring goals," said the 26-year-old.
"More importantly, our fans in the stadium were happy with the our unbeaten record at home so far," he added.
