The Red Warriors moved joint-top of Group C in the Malaysia Cup on Saturday after claiming a 2-0 victory over Terengganu at the Sultan Mohammad IV Stadium, thanks to goals from Dickson Nwakaeme and Zairo Anuar Zalani.
However, his side could - and perhaps should - have won by a bigger margin given the number of chances they created throughout the 90 minutes, with Obinna Nwaneri also missing a penalty after his weak effort was saved by opposition keeper Sharmiza Yusoff.
But Hodak reveals he will not get overly concerned with his side's inability to make the most of their opportunities, as long as they continue to rack up the wins.
"We did not use our chances well but I am happy with the overall commitment and performance of my players," he told The Star.
"The scoreline could have been bigger but it was a comfortable win, as we knew the three points would be safe when the second goal went in.
"This is not a serious issue as we continue to perform well enough to win matches. We are on an eight-match unbeaten run and our defence have only conceded one goal in that period."
One of the biggest culprits at the weekend was veteran striker Indra Putra Mahayuddin, who wasted two excellent chances to score, but Hodak defended the ex-Malaysia international.
"It is normal for strikers to go through rough patches when they do everything right but score," the Croat added.
"All Indra needs is a breakthrough goal to regain his confidence and he will be back to his usual self."
Hodak also revealed the decision to replace Norfarhan Muhammad with Ahmad Fakri Saarani was made with one eye on their next game - a trip to Negeri Sembilan on Tuesday evening.
"I took Norfarhan out because he suffered a knock during the game," he explained.
"It is just a precaution because the Negeri Sembilan game is coming up and I want to have as many fit players as possible for the remaining four [group stage] matches."
Kelantan are the defending champions of the tournament, having claimed a 3-2 extra-time victory over ATM in last year's final.
