Twenty-five minutes into the second half Ahmed Yasser once again came close to scoring, breaking through the Ismaily defense only to fluff his shot from eight yards out.

Four minutes after, John Antwi regained his position as top scorer of the league after combining really well with Mohamed Zika for the goal.

Wadi Degla came close t0 equalizing after Amr Marei curled the ball just inches away from goal.

With three minutes remaining and Wadi Degla pressing, Antwi slotted the ball through to Mahmoud Hamad who made no mistake in finishing past El-Hadary.

The Dervishes are now in second place after leaping above Zamalek, while Wadi Degla remain in sixth after succumbing to three consecutive losses.
