KUCHING: Sarawak are expected to face an uphill battle against PDRM tonight as they will be playing without two key players.

Acting coach Mohamad Denny Da’ail said he was forced to do a reshuffle of his first eleven.

Hudson and Shreen, both defenders, would not be playing due to injuries and had to be replaced by new and inexperienced substitutes.

“We have no choice but to use the service of inexperienced players for the position. My only hope, is that they would give their best,” he added.

Since last Monday and due to the current fasting month, the squad had been having their training sessions at night.

Throughout this Ramadan month, all the matches will also be played at night.

The state team last played against PDRM during the FA Cup match.

Sarawak desperately need a win tonight to improve their  position from second at the bottom.
