Ismaily have shifted a up gear in their title bid, aiming to maintain their winning streak when they host Wadi Degla on Day 13 of the Egyptian Premier League on Friday.
Ismaily coach Mark Wotte hopes to climb the league ladder from their current position of fourth with 19 points, five points adrift of leaders Zamalek in a season that becomes more unpredictable by the week.
The Dutch tactician has a full squad for this game as skipper Mohamed Soliman “Homos” is back in action after performing the Islamic pilgrimage a couple of weeks ago.
Also, Ahmed Khairi, who had to be pulled off their last game against Ittihad of Alexandria, has been included in the squad for the game.
In the other camp, Wadi Degla hope to bounce back after conceding an undeserved defeat against Enppi 3-2 last week.
Here are today’s games:
Ismaily – Wadi Degla (16:45pm)
Petrojet – Haras Al-Hodoud (16:45pm)
Enppi – El Entag El Harby (16:45pm)
Itthad Al Shorta – Gouna (16:45pm)
Arab Contractors – Masry (19:00pm)
Hours are in Cairo local time (GMT +2)
