Still having a chance to finish as champion this season, PSM Makassar brings serious ambition to challenge Borneo FC Samarinda at Segiri Stadium, tomorrow (10/8). The target of the Ramang Troop should be cautioned considering that the opponent has a good record in the first round.


Assistant coach of Borneo FC Samarinda, Ahmad Amiruddin, said that PSM is not an easy opponent. It is proven with their result in the match against the club which currently perched on the top of the standings.


Amiruddin said that one of the main strengths of PSM is located in the midfield. Where the position was occupied by qualified foreign players such as Marc Anthony Klok and Willem Jan Pluim.


"PSM midfielder is very dangerous when you hold the ball too long. We will anticipate it," said Amir, greeting.


High vigilance was once again quite natural for Borneo FC. PSM who brought 18 players to Samarinda bring the best strength. None of the guys are exposed to card accumulation.


Luckily, Pesut Etam has a similar fate with PSM. All players can perform because no one is suspended due to card accumulation. But only Shane Smeltz who is doubted to play because he has just played with New Zealand in the match against Japan, yesterday (10/6).


"Anyone who plays later should be ready against PSM, especially because we play at home, it should be easier to win the game.Let us be optimistic." said Amir.


No special preparation is mentioned by Amir. But from the exercise done, team coach prepare a special formula to reduce the ambition of PSM.



"Yes, we'll see it on the match, I can't speak about my strategy into the media," he concluded. (ABI/KOK)
