Requires sufficient stamina to host Perseru Serui in the week 32, Borneo FC Samarinda is keen to do the training ahead of the tour of Papua. No time to relax, Lerby Eliandry and his team routinely practice every day at Segiri Stadium, Samarinda.


Defeated to Persija Jakarta 1-2 in their last match, has made the coach team to do a very tight evaluation. One of them is to increase the concentration of players through training that is done everyday.


"Definitely there will be an evaluation, start from the stamina to the discipline in playing, the team are off guard in the last 15 minutes of the game and that's my evaluation," said Iwan Setiawan, coach of Borneo FC Samarinda.


Iwan was quite regret to the defeat that occurred in Segiri. Impact, the readiness of the team must be well-prepared. In the match against Perseru, the three points they lost must be paid completely. "Inevitably, we should be able to get points in Serui. It will be better if we can win the match," Iwan said.


After doing the training yesterday morning, the squad of Pesut Etam again do the training on the pitch of Segiri Stadium in the afternoon (31/10). Iwan scheduled his team to leave for Serui three or two days before the match.


Iwan added that his squad will be more complete after Shane Smeltz and Firdaus Ramadhan free from the punishment of card accumulation. Not only in the defense sector, the front lines will be more varied.


The absence of Diego did not necessarily discourage the team. Some names are ready to be options such as Leonard Tupamahu, Ricky Ohorella, Arthur Irawan and Zulvin Zamrun. "The mentality of the team are also good, we can play with a more complete squad in Serui, only minus Diego Michiels," said Iwan. (RIB/KOK)
