Majdi return boost for Al Sailiya


Al Sailiya’s Majdi Siddiq, who was red-carded during their 0-2 loss to Qatar SC in Week 16 of the QNB Stars League, will return to action when they take on Umm Salal at the Al Gharafa Stadium on 23rd February.

Al Sailiya had missed suspended Majdi when they held formidable Al Rayyan 2-2 in Week 17. The midfielder is a key player in Tunisian coach Sami Trabelsi’s scheme of things.

Al Sailiya, placed fourth in the QNB Stars League standings, are preparing in earnest for the Umm Salal match as the latter are just one point behind them on 24 points and keen to displace them from the top four.

It may be recalled that Al Sailiya broke into the top four with their 3-2 win over Umm Salal in their first-phase match played on 4th November (Week 7).

Al Sailiya had started their preparations on Sunday evening. Training sessions mainly focus on improving players’ fitness and rectifying some tactical errors.
