NA Hussein Dey beat Gor Mahia 1-0 in a Caf Confederations Cup clash at Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 in Algiers on Sunday evening.
Abderrahmane Yousfi scored the only goal of the game in the ninth minute of the clash as the Algerians got their revenge for the defeat suffered to the same opponents in Nairobi a week ago.
Gor Mahia’s Shafique Batambuze headed home what could be the equalizer but the referee blundered mistaking an infringement on NAHD keeper to have been occasioned by a Gor player .The centre referee accidentally denied Gor Mahia what was a clear goal.
The win moves Blood and Gold up to seven points in Group D with a mere three points separating Hussein Dey and bottom placed Petro de Luanda, who lost 1-0 at home to Zamalek earlier today.
K’ogalo slip down to second place on six points from their allotted fixtures with a trip to the White Knights in seven days time to follow next.
Hussein Dey travel to Luanda next weekend to take on a wounded Petro side.
