Al-Ahli stays in touch

12 December 2012-PA Sport

Goals from Grafite and Achille Emana helped Al-Ahli stay in touch with UAE League leader Al-Ain courtesy of a 2-1 victory at Ajman.

Former Wolfsburg striker Grafite got the visitor off the mark in the 25th minute before Emana added another one minute before half-time.

Boris Kabi pulled a goal back for Ajman in the 49th minute but Khalaf Ismail's second-half dismissal hindered the host's chances of forcing a draw.

Essa Obaid scored twice as Al-Shabab climbed into 10th place with a 3-1 win over Dubai.

Rami Yaslam left it until second-half stoppage time to answer Obaid's brace, the Al-Shabab man striking either side of the break, but Jociel Ciel rubber-stamped the win in the dying seconds.

Elsewhere, 10-man Al-Dhafra pulled eight points clear of the relegation places with a 1-0 home win over Walter Zenga's Al-Nasr.

Saif Mohammed scored what proved to be the winner in the 12th minute and the hosts rode out Fawzi Bashir's 22nd-minute dismissal to claim all three points.
