AMMAN –– Faisali play Ramtha on Friday in their second postponed match of the Jordan Professional League before matches resume on February 20.

Faisali climbed from 7th to 3rd place this week after beating traditional archrivals Wihdat 1-0 in the first of their postponed Leg 1 matches. Following Friday’s match, Faisali will play titleholders Shabab Urdun on February 19.

Looking ahead to Friday’s match, Ramtha coach Najeh Diyabat seemed apprehensive about playing Faisali.

“We will face a tough team, who is just out of an important win. Nevertheless our line-up is ready. We will spare no effort,” Diyabat noted.

Faisali’s coach Mohammad Yamani had earlier noted his team was “looking ahead to postponed matches, each one at a time”.

The season was brought to a halt since December 8 after a severe snowstorm brought life to a standstill in the Kingdom. That was followed by the national team’s participation in 8th West Asian Championship, the U-22 team’s participation at the Asian Football Confederation U-22 Championship and the restart of 2015 Asian Cup Group A qualifiers.

The Jordan Football Association competitions committee has now set the season’s agenda to end May 31. Postponed Week 10 and 11 matches will start on February 20 following which the Jordan Cup quarters will be played on April 4 and 5 and the return leg on April 22 and 23.
