Although succeed to win the match against Persiba Balikpapan at Mulawarman Stadium, Bontang on Monday (9/25), the coach of Borneo FC Samarinda, Iwan Setiawan admitted that his team wasted many chances in the match.


This fact made him wants to evaluate during the training of team preparation ahead the match against Barito Putera. According to him, he has often trained his players' finishing touch and instinct to score a goal.


But so far, his effort has not shown much. Lately, Borneo FC Samarinda were difficult to more than two goals in every match. "We try hard to improve that continuously. Maybe the condition in training is different with the condition in the match," he said.


He explains that the finishing training that he always gives to his team is to do a game simulation. It intended so that the players can get pressed just like in the real match. "Maybe the technique is different with the technique of their former coach. But we will also try to enhance the finishing touch by doing the finishing drills in training session," he said.


He also still seeking for the right composition to be the tandem for Shane Smeltz and Lerby Eliandry. Both have good quality, that makes Iwan wants these two players to collaborate as the forward of Pesut Etam. "So far if both of them were played together, one of them always give way to each other by moving aside to the wing or the middle sector," he said.


That is why Iwan is still arranging the right composition while accepting some inputs from another coach staffs. Iwan believes that both players will be a sharp duet if the team is in the right composition. "We will keep doing evaluation, because we have to be better in this competition," he ended. (HFZ/KOK)
