Kelantan head coach rested key players Indra Putra and Badhri Radzi for the upcoming MSL game against LionsXII in the weekend
Kelantan opened their 2013 AFC Cup campaign this evening against Maldivian outfit Maziya SRC at the Sultan Mohammad IV Stadium.
The Red Warriors conceded 17 minutes into the second period after a mistake from Shakir Shaari allowed Hassan Adhuham to score.
A late equaliser from Badhri Radzi saved the home side the blushes as they managed to escape with a point.
Kelantan head coach Bojan Hodak was clearly upset at the 1-1 draw.
He said: "We played well, created chances but we didn’t score.
"Dimitri Petratos and Dickson Nwakaeme were well guarded by defenders.
"It was hard for them to move but they played well."
The Croatian also told reporters that he kept Indra Putra and Badhri Radzi on the bench to rest them for the big game against the LionsXII in the Malaysian Super League on Saturday.
