However, on Tuesday they returned to winning ways thanks to goals by Hassan Al Ali before half-time and new signing Modou Barrow in the second stanza.

Al Kholood did score the equaliser just after half-time via an own goal by Al Ahli’s Bastos but Mosimane’s side pounced back in the 73rd minute and didn’t let go of the three points again.

The victory saw them climb into second place with 40 points, level with leaders Hazem and with a five point buffer to the non-promotion places.
