First Point Won At Home Ground

 In Liga Super 2017, News, Press Release

Ketua Jurulatih Melaka United Eric Williams ketika ditemuramah berkata walaupun mendapat satu mata tapi perasaannya seperti menerima kekalahan. Perlawanan ini agak sukar kerana Felda United adalah satu pasukan yang bagus.

Strategi beliau untuk menukarkan Khair Jones ke bahagian tengah membuahkan hasil tetapi kekosongan di bahagian kiri menyebabkan gol penyamaan dijaringkan oleh Lucas Cano apabila konsentrasi pemain beliau jatuh di minit-minit akhir perlawanan. Apabila ditanya mengapa Aguero ditukarkan adalah kerana beliau mengalami kecederaan.

Target Williams adalah untuk menang di perlawanan seterusnya menentang PKNS di Stadium Hang Jebat dan melayakkan tempat automatik ke Piala Malaysia.

Ketua Jurulatih Felda, Sathianathan berkata pasukan beliau mengalami tekanan selepas tewas kepada Pulau Pinang pada minggu lepas dan pada perlawanan ini pemainnya bermain agak baik kerana mendapat banyak penguasaan bola tetapi tidak memanfaatkan peluang terhidang. Pasukan Felda akan bertemu Pahang FA di perlawanan Liga Super seterusnya dan pesanan beliau kepada penyokong Melaka United adalah terus berikan sokongan kepada pasukan mereka kerana ini adalah kali pertama mereka bermain di Liga Super. Sokongan mereka amat penting di dalam menaikkan semangat pemain Melaka United untuk bersaing di Liga Super.
