“We’ve a tough game against Umm Salal, who are a strong side and are in a good position. We are ready to give a good fight and collect full points.

“We used the long break to rectify some mistakes in our game and also to improve the overall level of our game. All players stayed focused during the break and we intensified our preparations.

“At this moment, we badly need points. Nothing else matters from our point of view. We want to compensate for the lost points in the first phase.

“We also took advantage of the break to enhance the players’ physical fitness. We suffered a lot because of injuries in the opening half of the season. We missed some players in key games.

“It’s true that we did well in the QSL Cup, but that is a different ball game. The QNB Stars League is a different challenge and we’re ready for the second phase.

“Presently, we’ve no plans to change any player. Our group is almost set,” said Al Ajlani.
