Orouba set to take on Air Force Club in AFC Cup
Tue,10-May-16

Air Force Club are aiming to finish the group stage of the 2016 AFC Cup with another win as the Iraqi side seek to consolidate their position at the summit of Group C.

Ali Hadi’s side lead the group with 12 points from their opening five matches and victory over Al Orouba in Muscat on Wednesday will keep the Baghdad-club in first place.

“The match is still important for us and we want to get a victory,” said Hadi, whose side defeated Amanat 4-0 on Friday. “We respect our opponents. They are a strong side and even though they failed to qualify from the group they have put in some good performances in the competition this year.

“We have a lot of determination. We are at full strength and I hope the players are ready so that we can finish the group stage with a victory.

Al Orouba, whose only win in the competition this year came on Matchday One, will part company with coach Martin Koopman after the game and the Dutchman is hoping to go out on a high.

“Tomorrow’s match will be the last for me with the team. I want to thank everyone who helped me this season,” he said. “After finishing the league, we want to win the match and hopefully we can enjoy the game.

“We have had a lot of issues in the team and one of the problems is that many of the players didn’t train recently. I hope the team will have a good match tomorrow and I wish them all the best for the future.”

The final standings in Group C will be subject to the pending AFC Disciplinary Committee decisions following the voiding of the game between Al Dharia and Al Wahda on Matchday Two.
