However, Al Nasr are still in the dangerous zone and have a lot of work to do to avoid a possible relegation to the First Division League.
Ajman veteran midfielder said: “We fought to the best of our power and will without much success. This is what has happened and we have to accept it.”
Al Nasr’s midfielder Fahad Sabeel said: “Al Nasr played a very big game and hopefully everything will be all right in the remaining part of the competition.”
However, with four rounds remaining, there are at least four other teams facing a real threat of relegation. Al Shabab and Al Nasr have settled in the ninth and tenth positions only five points ahead of the Emirates while Al Ahli and Al Dhafra face the same risk. Al Ahli have collected 22 points and need to win two of their remaining four encounters to reach the safe waters.
“The remaining part of the competition is very crucial for us,” said Al Nasr team’s manager Eissa Obaid.
“The team is improving under the new coach Helio dos Anjos and we have nothing to worry about. We are confident that Al Nasr will maintain their pro-league status,” he confirmed.
In the meantime, Al Wahda top official Abdullah Saleh reasserted that they will never compromise their title hopes. “The chase for the title is not settled but we are determined to claim a dream line-up in the upcoming 2010 FIFA Club World Cup,” he said.
