KUCHING: Sarawak’s playmakers, Shahrol Saperi and Guy Bwele are back in the team after serving their match-suspension for yellow card offences.
Sarawak’s skipper, Shahrol was suspended for one match where he missed the last away match against UiTM at Shah Alam Stadium while Bwele sat out the team’s last two matches for having collected six yellow card in the previous matches.
“It’s good to be back in the team and being a player, the agony of sitting out of a game and not able to help your team is somethng that I don’t want to go through again,” said Shahrol when contacted yesterday.
“I cannot wait to get back on the field with the team and eventhough I was suspended for the last two matches, it will be no problem on my match fitness,” he added.
For the two players, what is important now is to help the team get maximum points in the remaining matches.
According to Shahrol, with the inclusion of the two new players, Muamer Silabasic and Junior Eldstal, the competition for places will now be tough.
“It will be a stiff competition to get into the first eleven with the inclusion of the new players, notably Bosnian Muamer Silabasic as he is also a midfielder but it is good for the team as it will keep us on our toes,” said Shahrol.
“For me, it doesn’t matter whether I am selected to play or not for as long as the team win, I am happy,” he said.
Shahrol added that, Sarawak are now in the right track and with Alberts at the helm, he is confident that the team can go further.
Sarawak are second in the table standing with thirty four points from ten wins, drawing four matches and their next match will be against KL SPA Putrajaya at the State Stadium on May 3.
