Al Ahli Saudi have continued with their unbeaten run under Pitso Mosimane after taking over the top spot in the Saudi Arabia first division with their latest win on Tuesday night.

Mosimane’s charges were 3-0 winners over Al Jabalain courtesy of a brace by World Cup star Haitham Asiri and Salman Al Moasher’s late strike.

With that win it means Mosimane is not only now in control of the promotion mission but has the league trophy in sight as well.

Another 17 league games remain in the second-tier league of Saudi football where Cristiano Ronaldo now plays in the top tier.

With the top four guaranteed of promotion to the Saudi Pro League that part appears certain with the next target being to lift the league winners’ trophy.

Mosimane has made a statement in this transfer window by bringing in Brazilian hitman Marco ‘Marcao’ Amaral, Gambian attacker Modou Barrow and Saudi international winger Sumayhan Al-Nabit.

Mosimane has collected 26 points so far after winning seven and drawing five since taking over in September.

The top spot has been delivered at the halfway stage by virtue of Al Ahli Saudi having a better goal difference compared to Al Faisaly who also have 34 points.
