Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Khor



Al Khor coach Nassif Al Bayawi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Round 9 match against Al Sailiya.

“We’ll go into this match against Al Sailiya with the sole aim of winning three valuable points. We had rectified many past mistakes and that reflected on our victory against Qatar SC in the last round. Yet, we aren’t in the top half of the table. We need to improve on our eighth position.

“It was crucial that we got full points against Qatar SC. That helped us move from 11th to eighth in the ladder. Still, we’ve three important games in the first phase, against Al Sailiya, Al Sadd and Al Arabi, and we should be preparing well for it.

“Al Sailiya are a very strong team with many quality players, who can make a difference at any moment. They’ve a great coach in Tunisian Sami Trabelsi. We’ll bank on our strengths and positives in order to achieve a good result against them.

“Every game is unique in its own ways. We’re taking it one game at a time and will then decide our future course of action,” he said.
