Ismaily's key player, midfielder Hosni Abd Rabou, is in doubt for the team's match against Ahly on Wednesday, in week 15 of the Egyptian Premier League.

"Abd Rabou's participation will be decided on Wednesday morning, hours before the game. Everything is possible," the coastal club doctor Magdy El-Baz told Ismaily's official website.

One of the most important players in the Ismailia-based team, Abd Rabou, 31, is suffering from a knee injury but he is among the 22-man squad training in a closed camp ahead of the anticipated match.

Ismaily is currently led by Tunisian tactician Nasreddine Nabi after Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam quit his job after ten matches. Mido is currently coaching title-holders Zamalek.

In another technical staff change, assistant coach Ashraf Khedr also announced his departure from the club, wishing good luck to Nabi.

Nabi formerly coached AC Leopards of Congo before leading Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal.

The Yellows are now 10th in the league table with 18 points after 12 games. Ahly have also played 12 matches, sitting in third place with 26 points.
