The English manager took over the reigns last summer but has overseen hitherto a disappointing campaign.

Two games have gone in the second half of the season and the green and red club are still to find their feet.

Despite the return of striker Moussa Dembele, results have remained the same at the Dammam based club.

Gerrard’s job could be on the line should he fail to inspire a side that is believed to be competing with the biggest clubs in the land.

With Thursday’s 1-1 draw against Al Hazm, Gerrard’s side have now failed to win a league game in eight attempts.

Demarai Gray scored in the 70th minute and it looked like the hosts finally had their first victory in two months but Toze broke the hearts of the home fans when he equalized from the spot in the 91st minute.

Meanwhile…

Al Riyadh pipped in form Damac FC to move out of the relegation zone.

The home side scored through Andre Gray in the 51st minute and it happened to be the winning goal.

The loss is Damac’s first in eight games, six of which were victories.

It also brings to an end Riyadh’s four game winless streak and helps them out of the relegation places.
