AMMAN —  While Jazira are still in the lead of the Jordan Professional Football League, closest rivals Wihdat and Faisali have narrowed the gap heading into Week 10 of the competition.

Jazira managed to salvage a 1-1 draw with Ramtha last week in the final minutes which enabled them to remain atop the standings before they play Manshieh, who maintained fourth place after beating Sahab 2-0. Wihdat and Faisali are now four points behind the leaders after Wihdat beat That Ras 2-0 and Faisali beat Hussein 2-1.

Wihdat next play Sarih who lost 3-1 to Shabab Urdun who are up to 6th, while Faisali meet Baqaa who lost 4-0 to Ahli as the latter climbed to fifth. Jazira’s Syrian pro Mardig Mardigian still leads the top scorers list with seven goals.
