The injury malaise that has afflicted Ahed for the brunt of this season reared its ugly head again this week following the untimely news that Mohammad Haidar will miss the potentially seminal clash with leaders Nejmeh Saturday.Nejmeh are ahead only on goals scored, with both sides amassing 25 points from nine matches and sharing identical goal differences in their unbeaten starts to the season.Nejmeh are the league's most prolific outfit with 19 goals, while Ahed boast the best defensive record after conceding just three times. Nejmeh skipper Hasan Maatouk, meanwhile, will need no extra motivation as he aims to add to his disappointing tally of two goals in seven league appearances.
