Ittihad of Alexandria and Smouha were held to a 1-1 draw by Petrojet and Ittihad El-Shorta respectively while Arab Contractors conceded a 2-0 defeat on Monday and almost need a battle to survive among Egypt’s football elite next season.

After losing at home against Wadi Degla last Wednesday at home, Ittihad managed to earn a draw at Suez against Petrojet courtesy to a late penalty from Mahmoud Chaker Abdel-Fattah in the 86th minute to cancel out Kamal Ali’s spot kick in the 73rd minute.

Ghanaian striker Godwin Attram scored an injury-time equalizer to help Smouha claim a 1-1 draw against their visitors Ittihad El-Shorta.

In Cairo, Arab Contractors endured a torrid time, losing 2-0 at home to Maqassa as Ayman Kamal netted twice on 17 and 37 minutes.

Arab Contractors, 22 points; Ittihad of Alexandria, 20 points; and Smouha, 18 points are hovering above the second division, lying down in the bottom three places.
