36 Lion ambassador Junior Ajayi contributed his quota to Al Ahly’s 2-0 victory over Ismaily in the Egyptian Premier League on Wednesday.
The forward lasted 90 minutes before making way for Akram Tawfik at injury time in Cairo.
Ajayi was actively involved in the attacking forays of Ahly.
Second-half goals from Badr Benoun and substitute Salah Mohsen gave Ahly victory.
A penalty kick breathed some life into the game after forward Mohamed Sherif was tripped by Ismaily keeper Mohamed Magdi, with Benoun sending him the wrong way.
Mohsen, who is playing a bit-part role this season, ensured the win when he stole ahead of his marker to neatly control Marwan Mohsen’s flick and go clear from the halfway line.
Ahly needed a victory to dispel the doubts that arose from some inconsistent displays lately, which saw them lose to Tanzania’s Simba and draw with DR Congo’s Vita Club in the African Champions League.
They lie second in the table with 27 points.
