Al Markhiya in full swing


Promoted team Al Markhiya’s preparations for the second phase of QNB Stars League are in full swing under coach Yousef Adam. The Oryxes will take on Al Sadd in the 12th round at the Al Sadd Stadium on 13th January. The kick-off is at 18:30.

Al Markhiya, who beat Al Arabi 1-0 in a friendly played a few days ago, would be keen to put up a strong performance in the second phase, having finished at the bottom with just seven points and one victory.

Yousef is putting his wards through their paces in practice sessions while addressing the areas for improvement. He would hope the players stay free of injuries as they have a tough task on hand in the opening round of QNB Stars League’s second phase.
