Ahly's forward Mohamed 'Gedo' Nagy marked his return from injury after a year out with a goal as the Red Devils continued their resurgence under coach Fathi Mabrouk with a 4-0 rout of El-Geish in the Egyptian Premier League on Sunday.
Gedo, best known for scoring five goals to help Egypt win the 2010 African Cup of Nations, has been out of action for almost a year due to a serious knee injury.
He broke clear to score the fourth goal and put the icing on the cake in the dying minutes, immediately after his introduction.
Gedo ruptured a knee curciate ligament in Ahly's Confederation Cup clash against Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia on 25 May last year.
Ahly claimed their second successive win under Mabrouk, who replaced Juan Garrido after the Spanish coach was sacked following a string of poor results including a stunning African Champions League elimination.
Abdallah El-Saied gave Ahly a fifth-minute lead when he raced clear to calmly slot home before midfielder Mahmoud Trezeguet benefited from a defensive lapse to fire into the roof of the net from inside the area 10 minutes later.
The second half witnessed two more goals from dominant Ahly, who also wasted a penalty in the 68th-minute after Moemen Zakareya's shot struck the woodwork.
Veteran striker Emad Metab added the third goal six minutes from time with a beautifully-taken curling free kick before Gedo completed the rout in stoppage time.
Toothless El-Geish failed to mount any threats as Ahly secured a comfortable win.
Ahly are third in the league table with 49 points, eight behind leaders Zamalek can restore their 11-point advantage over their Cairo foes if they beat Masry on Monday.
