Although Terengganu FC could only come away with a point from their round 14 Super League tie away to Felda United on Saturday, it was a much-needed fix to their recent form.

A 4-0 second leg quarter-final FA Cup defeat to Pahang which was then followed by a 5-3 league defeat at home to Petaling Jaya City earlier this month led to experienced head coach Irfan Bakti's resignation earlier this week, and the appointment of assistant coach Zul Fadli Rozi as caretaker boss.

It was only in the 83rd minute that the deadlock was broken in Jengka, with Nabil Latpi scoring for the visitors, but Kei Ikeda would equalise for the hosts just five minutes later.

The draw took their winless streak in all competitions to four, but Zul was nevertheless relieved with the result.

"In overall, I'm satisfied with how we turned up. We showed improvements as compared to our last two defeats; we had possession, created chances and controlled the game.

"Felda were dangerous too, and they punished us with the equaliser when our players lost their concentration in the final minutes of the match, but at least we didn't lose. We must work on our weaknesses before we host Selangor next week, who have been performing well recently thanks to their new foreign signing (Ifedayo Olusegun)," he remarked to the press after the encounter.
