Kuching FA Premier League striker Joseph Kalang Tie said there were many shortcomings in both teams that need to rectify.

“For the junior team, I believe they can go a long way because they scored the first goal of the match and could have won the game if they could keep up with their speed and concentration.

“They just need to have the confidence to go the distance with the seniors and train harder,” he said when met by reporters at the State Stadium yesterday.
