Al Khor head into the relegation six pointer knowing that a victory would effectively relegate their rivals, and boost their survival chances no end. Veteran Knights coach Jean Fernandez spoke to the media ahead of the game.
Fernandez opened up the press conference stating that his side is well prepared for the battle.“We have prepared the team well in this match, we played friendly games which were useful in getting the team ready for the final three games for the season. We are in a similar position as Al Wakrah, and the game will show our real abilities, both teams will play for the win.”
“The only option for us is to win, I only play to win. Especially when we take on a team who like us is fighting for survival. We are not thinking of the play-off we are just focusing on the Wakrah match” added the French tactician.
Fernandez ended the press conference stressing that one win will be enough to confirm survival for his side. “We have to take the positives, I may have experience but that does not help the situation we are in now. We must win in order survive in the league.”
