CAIRO: Al-Gaish grabbed their first win of the season following a 1-0 victory over newcomers Asyut Petroleum in the Egyptian League on Friday.
Veteran playmaker Abdel-Sattar Sabri scored the winner for Al-Gaish in the 34th minute.
He followed on Ernest Papa Arko s back-heeled pass to fire home past Asyut Petroleum keeper Mostafa Kamal.
Military club Al-Gaish failed to impress in the early stages of the season under new coach Sabri Al-Menyawi, losing three successive games.
Former boss Talaat Youssef, now in charge of newly-promoted Police Union, led Al-Gaish to a fourth-placed finish last season.
