Amutu, a new signing who recently joined on deadline day, scored his second goal in four matches before Islam Isaa sealed all three points with a well-taken strike, six minutes from full-time to hand El-Masry a convincing 3-1 win.
The win thus lifts them to 4th on the log with 35 points from 23 games but 13 points off third placed Al-Ahly in their push for a continental ticket.

On for just his second league start of the campaign, the host took the lead from the penalty spot when the ball hit goalkeeper Ahmed Abdelfattah to go in after first striking the bar to put the visitors in front

The defeat leaves Nogoom at the bottom, three points off the drop zone with 21 points from 24 games played so far.
