In the match, the Turtles managed to seal a 2-0 victory over Sabah FC thanks to goals from Nik Muhammad Shariff Haseefy Mohd Lazim and Pape Diakite.
At the same time, Nafuzi also praised the energetic performance of his boys who succeeded in defeating Sabah who are ranked higher than TFC in the Super League.
Meanwhile, Sabah’s head coach, Datuk Ong Kim Swee said last night’s performance was the worst performance his men had ever displayed throughout the 19 Super League matches this season.
“Terengganu really deserve to win, as with the form of the game like tonight (last night), we don’t deserve even for a draw,“ he said.
However, he remains confident that Sabah are still on the track to finish this season’s league in the top three teams, thus qualifying for the AFC Cup next season.-Bernama
