Although their Super League match opponents on Tuesday, Sarawak are currently second from bottom in the standings, Selangor head coach Maniam Pachaiappan will not underestimate the home side's challenge.

Apart from their position in the league, the Crocodiles have also not won any of their league matches at home this season.

"Even in our earlier home game against Sarawak (on April 8), in the first 20, 25 minutes they created a lot of chances.

"They were very aggressive, and they are a good team," he told Goal.

Maniam also said that playing in Sarawak is still a tough effort.

"It's not easy (for visiting teams) to play in Sarawak, we can't say that just because they are second from bottom, we can overcome them easily.

"They are a good team, and we have to play with more confidence and teamwork, and avoid conceding," reminded the coach.

In the round 9 match that was held at the Selayang Municipal Stadium in April, Selangor defeated Sarawak 2-1.
