No further goals was scored until late in the second half, when John Okoye found the back of the net in the 72nd minute.

However, the hosts responded, halving the deficit in the 74th minute before leveling up the score on 89 minutes.

But, Ceramica Cleopatra would have the final say and in the second minute of stoppage time, their summer import from Al Ahly, Shokry set up substitute, Seif Teka for the game winner.

Victory on the day moved Gold and Blood up to 7th place in the standings after as many games in the Egypt PL.

The team also stretch their unbeaten run to three games (2 wins, 1 draw) after losing their previous three league games.
