Egbo and his wards are also in the final of the Albania Cup and this could be another landmark achievement for the 46-year-old if his side should win it.
Tirana fans are all in joyous momentum with this latest achievement which they have been looking for since the past 11 years.
The result means Tirana currently on 69 points are now seven points ahead of Kukesi who are on 62 points with two games left to play.
