Absentees and injuries look set to dampen Stretford FC's first test as team as it has been confirmed that striker Alvin Oki will not be able to feature in tomorrow's training match.
He joins Enders right-back, Ridhuan, who suffered a long-term hamstring injury earlier this year.
And to add to Stretford's misery, they will have to contend with a string of absentees for tomorrow's match. Wei Jie (national duty), Ruben (work commitment), Chang Yao and Ethan Tam (both family commitment) complete the players who will be missing in action.
However, the locker room remains upbeat and the general mood is positive in anticipation of the training match.
"The boys can't wait for the first match tomorrow. We've been looking forward to this for months. Now that we have a complete squad, we can look forward to working on getting the synergy right in the coming weeks." said pacy right-back Ridhuan.
When asked if the absentees will be an issue, Ridhuan was poised with his reply.
"Well that's what we have a big squad for. There shouldn't be a big problem for the lads and I feel we have enough quality to cover for the boys who are missing."
Ridhuan then hurriedly limped off back to the dressing room when SFC News probed further and was heard saying "*Nabbies! Don't ask me already lah! I injured so long liao. Better not say too much myself!"
While the current situation does not look rosy over at the Stretford camp, the team and staff can take comfort in the fact that tomorrow's match will only be a "training" and will just provide a good run-out for some of the players who will surely be needing match fitness ahead of the FC Barcelona clash next week - SFC News
