Al Ahly receive major injury boost ahead of Cairo derby

Al Ahly receive major injury boost ahead of Cairo derby


Al Ahly have received a huge injury boost after defensive duo and trained with the first team ahead of the Cairo derby.

The Reds will face arch-rivals Zamalek on March 30 in a top of the table clash, as the Whites currently sit top with 53 points, two more than Al Ahly.

And on Monday, Al Ahly have received positive news as centre-back duo Ayman Ashraf and Saad Samir have been confirmed fit for the derby.

Saad Samir, who has been ever-present in Al Ahly’s defence since his arrival in 2011, had a minor hamstring strain, but has recovered from it and is now available to feature against Zamalek.

Meanwhile, Ayman Ashraf pulled up a back injury during Al Ahly’s clash with JS Saoura last week, but like Samir, has been declared fit.

This leaves Karim Nedved, Hamdi Fathi, and Amr Gamal as the only confirmed absences from the game, with Walid Soliman unlikely to feature as well.
