“There’s less pressure because we won the league; by winning the league, the boys are more relaxed and when you are relaxed, you work hard and I think there’s a chance of us doing well.
It’s always tough, the Malaysia Cup [because] it’s a traditional tournament and I believe the Malaysian teams will really gear up to perform against us.
“We must be at our best and play at our best to get something out of the tournament.”
