Date set for Foxes, Knights clash



The return leg for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round between Algeria and Libya will hold on October 14 at the Mustapha Tchaker stadium in Blida at 20H30 local time, 19H30 GMT, the Algeria football federation (FAF) announced on Friday.

The body added that officials were monitoring maintenance work at the stadium to make sure the pitch and every other detail at the facility were in good condition.

The FAF also said it had informed CAF and the Libya football federation of the date, time and venue of the encounter, in accordance with normal regulations.

It is yet unclear if the authorities in Algeria will beef up security for the clash following match incidents in the first leg played in Casablanca, Morocco, where some Libyan players were reported to have assaulted their Algerian mates after the game won by the Fennec Foxes 1-0.

A group of Algerian fans had attempted retaliation on the Libyan team at the Casablanca airport, while the players were waiting for a flight back home to Tripoli.

However, the Algeria FA has promised to show love and hospitality to the Libyans during the return leg.
