Al Gharafa’s Ilyas to be back for Al Kharaitiyat game


Al Gharafa will have the services of Ilias Ahmed for their QNB Stars League Round 5 match against Al Kharaitiyat, scheduled for Thursday, 19th October, at the Al Khor Stadium.

Ilyas missed The Cheetahs’ Round 4 game against Al Khor on Saturday, which they won 3-0, as he was sent off during their previous league fixture versus Al Sadd. Al Gharafa had lost that game.

The victory over Al Khor, their first in this season’s league campaign, has boosted the confidence of Al Gharafa, coached by Frenchman Jean Fernandez. They now have five points.
