Heartland lose to Ismaily A blunder from Heartland custodian on 15 minutes gave Ismaili their first win in the CAF Champions League group stage on Sunday.

A long pass tricked the keeper, who unreasonably advanced outside the area, as the ball hit the ground and went over his head.

The ball then found Ismaili's Nigerian striker Ndubuisi Godwin, who slotted into an empty net.

The much-needed 1-0 victory lifted the Dervishes to Group B third place on three points.

Heartland are now languishing at the bottom of the group with a sole point and face a mountain to climb in their quest to qualify for the semis.

JS Kabylie, who beat second-placed Ahli 1-0 on the same day, are the group leaders with nine points.
