INDERA SC head coach Haji Omar bin Haji Jamil has attributed their
2-1 victory to their ability of carving space left by their opponents
Kasuka FC in the Brunei DST Super League at the Berakas Sports Complex
Indera took the lead through Mohammad Asri Haji Aspar before Md Mardi
Mirza Abdullah Bujang equalised from the spot in the 35th minute for
Kasuka FC after Muhd Hafis Mahari was brought down in the box.
However, Indera SC came up with the winner in the 75th minute after a
good combination play in the box resulted in a fine effort by Awangku
Mohd Haikal Pengiran Zaidi nestling into the bottom corner.
“It was a balanced match but we were able to exploit the free space. I
think at the end of the day the team who committed an error would go on
to lose,” said Haji Omar in an interview with the Bulletin.
Kasuka had a free-kick well saved by Indera SC shot-stopper Mohd Ahsanuddin Haji Mohd Dani.
The head coach revealed that he was satisfied with the result before
adding the urgency to build on their victory by closing their matches in
the first round with consecutive victories.
Haji Omar added that the current top five teams in the top division this season are equally competitive.
“As an example, Kasuka have just been promoted to the Super League
but there are seasoned and experienced players in the squad,” Haji Omar
The team boast players who have represented the national team and have spent their playing career in the top flight.
The Jerudong team had players which sought for a new challenge in
different clubs which explained that the Jerudong is currently in a
period of transition with new players.
“The players from the Jerudong team last season have moved to other clubs,” Haji Omar said.
The head coach also emphasised that they need to win their remaining
games in hand to stay in contention with the higher-placed teams.
