In the end, a first-half goal by Abdullah Al Mogren and a late second by Morad Khodari secured Mosimane’s men their ninth win over the last 10 games.

The incredible run has seen Al Ahli open a 13-point gap to the non-promotion places, while they’ve also overtaken Al Hazem as log leaders.

Hazem had dropped points on Monday after being held to a 1-1 draw by Al-Qadisiyah, meaning Mosimane’s side climbed two points above their promotion rivals.

They return to action on 12 March when they take on fourth-placed Al Riyadh.
