It’s the third straight victory for Marc Wotte’s men after previous wins over Ahly, 3-1, and Ittihad of Alexandria, 3-1.

The hosts put a lot of pressure on Wadi Degla from the beginning of the game, but Haytham Mohamed produced some heroic stretches between the sticks to maintain his clean sheet, especially denying a rocketing header from Mohamed Mohsen Abougreisha at the half-hour mark.

The game was closely contested, the visitors near to scoring when Ghanaian striker Wisdom Agblexo broke through Ismaily’s defence only to be denied by international score-stopper Mohamed Sobhy.

Fans had to hold their breath until the 80th minute when Mohab Saied sent a promising pass to right winger Ahmed Sedik who set up Amr El-Sulaya in the six yards area to hit home the winner.

Ismaily are now fourth with 22 points — five points behind leaders Zamalek.


Here are today’s results:

Petrojet 3 - 0 Haras Al-Hodoud
Enppi 3 - 2 El Entag El-Harby
Itthad Al-Shorta 1 - 0 Gouna
Arab Contractors 1-1 Masry
