CAIRO: Ismaili have secured a morale-boosting 1-0 home victory over Nigeria s Kwara United in the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday.

The Dervishes managed to end a four-match winless streak in all competitions, thanks to Youssef Gamal s strike midway through the first-half.

He chested down Mohamed Hommos superb long ball inside the area before firing a powerful left-footed volley into the back of the net.

Despite being already eliminated, the victory is likely to ease the crisis within the club that appointed Ismail Hefni as a caretaker coach following the sacking of Taha Basri.

Ismaili finished third in Group B with eight points, three clear of Kwara United who lie at the bottom.
