thumbnail Hello,

Maziya coach, Ismail Mahfooz, picked Kelantan to be the favourites of the group and was contented with the draw in the away fixture

Maziya SRC visited Kelantan for their first AFC Cup game of the season and were close to snatching a victory at Kota Bharu.

However, super-sub Badhri Radzi’s late equaliser cancelled out Hassan Adhuham’s 62ndminute strike.

Despite the draw, Maziya coach, Ismail Mahfooz, was pleased with his team’s performance.

“I am happy with the match results and also with the players’ fantastic discipline in defence,” he said.

Ismail is confident that Maziya SRC can progress to the next stage.

“If we can maintain the discipline, it is not impossible for us to get through,” he added.

With regards to Kelantan, the Maziya coach was quick to label the Red Warriors as the favourites but in his concluding statements, he mentioned that the team morale is very high after getting a point in a tough match.
