Qatar SC’s Babatunde raring to go


Qatar SC’s Nigerian professional player Michael Babatunde is raring to go in their QNB Stars League Round 9 match against Umm Salal, scheduled for 25th November.

Babatunde, who carries much of Qatar SC’s hopes of making a turnaround in their fortunes, was missing in action with suspension when they lost to Al Khor in the eighth round. He had picked up two yellow cards during their game against Al Rayyan in the previous week.

Gabriel Calderon-coached Qatar SC remain the basement side with just one victory and will be keen to avoid the situation of going back to the Second Division.

The Kings, who are up against Al Kharaitiyat and Al Gharafa in the 10th and 11th rounds, are facing an uphill task in the relegation battle.
