Al Salmiya Disappoint In Top Of The Table Clash

I was looking forward to this game. Al Salmiya went into it very much the surprise package of the Kuwait Premier League season winning its first five games and sharing top spot with 2014.25 champions Kuwait SC. Qadsia on the other hand had dropped points, drawing 2-2 in a thriller with Al Arabi.

I was disappointed. For all their pressure and pressing in the first half Al Salmiya seemed just as happy to fall to the ground as put the Qadsia keeper under pressure and any fluency was lost as a result. Second half and the home side offered a more potent threat, taking the lead just shy of the hour mark when Dari Said drove home from the right hand side of the penalty area.

Saleh Al Sheikh finished the scoring from an almost identical position 22 minutes later and Al Salmiya were left chasing the game for the final minutes to little effect. The three points catapulted Qadsia from third to top spot and a home game against Al Sulaibhikat on Saturday. Things get no better for pretenders Al Salmiya...they play Kuwait SC on Friday!
