DOHA: Qatar Stars League side Al Shahaniya will be sweating on the fitness on the duo of Fahad Khalfan and Mesaad Al Hamad ahead of their crunch match against newly promoted side Muaither at the weekend.
Both players suffered knocks during Shahaniya’s 3-0 defeat to reigning QSL champions Al Rayyan on Friday evening at Al Sadd Stadium. Al Shahaniya’s medical team will now assess the pair to see if they will be able to partake in training before the game at Al Arabi stadium.
In other team news, Al Shahaniya will be without experienced Spanish defender Alvaro Meija for the tie against Muaither. Meija has the dubious honour of being the first player to be sent off in the QSL this season, after picking up two yellow cards in the defeat to Al Rayyan.
