The Ministry of Interior outfit had their best chance of the game 10 minutes after a mixup in the Reds’ backline gave Temsah the chance to open the scoring but the Egyptian international somehow missed an open goal.

Peter Ebi was once again at the centre of danger, this time his volleyed finish was kept out by Fawzy.

Meteb though was the one who got his side’s opener when he latched onto a loose ball to finish into the back of the net.

The Red Devils scored their second with only two minutes remaining; Saladin Said intercepting the ball from Fawzy before finishing into the net to make it 2-0.
