The King pulled off a late comeback, as Saif Rashid reduced the deficit one again in the 76th minute before Salem Saleh headed the equalizer in the second minute of injury time.
Al Wasl extended their undefeated run to 12 games, as they raised their tally to 34 points in seventh place. Meanwhile, Sharjah are currently on 41 points and sit third, just one point above fourth-placed Shabab Al Ahli.
