Sharjah tighten grip on third place with win over Ajman

Sharjah tightened their grip on third spot in the Arabian Gulf League with a 3-0 win over Ajman at Rashid bin Saeed Stadium in matchweek 25 on Friday.


After a goalless first half, Abdulrahman Rakan netted an own goal to put Sharjah 1-0 up on the one-hour mark. The hosts' misery was compounded when they were forced to continue the game with 10 men after Waleed Abdulla was sent off seven minutes later. 


Super sub Igor Coronado netted two quickfire goals, as he scored off a freekick in the 72nd minute before further extending Sharjah's lead with another strike three minutes later. 


The win saw Sharjah cement their third place, as they now have 48 points. Meanwhile, Ajman dropped crucial points in the battle for survival as they are tied with relegation contenders Fujairah, who still have a game in hand, on 15 points.
