ENPPI missed out on the chance of going top of Group A in the Egyptian Premier League after playing out a 0-0 draw with Maqassa on Friday.

The Petroleum side remain second in the group with 16 points, two behind leaders and title holders Ahly. Maqassa lie sixth on 10 points.

Ahly's game against Ghazl Mahalla  has been postponed after the military stadiums refused to host the Red Devils' matches.

"The management of Borg El-Arab stadium refused to host the Ahly and Zamalek games after Ahly fans damaged it during their match against Kenyan side Tusker [in the CAF Champions League round of 32]," EFA spokesperson Azmy Megahed told Ahram Sports.

This year's league is known as the 'martyrs' league' and is being played in two groups after all domestic competitions were suspended for a year due to the Port Said Stadium disaster that left more than 70 Ahly fans dead in February 2012.
