The Zamalek football team will face Arab Contractors without midfielders Ahmed Tawfik and Ahmed Hammoudi as well as defenders Hazem Emam, Mohamed Koffi and Ali Gabr.

The Egyptian Premier League's fourth match-day game will be held Wednesday at 7:45pm in PeroSport Stadium in Cairo.

"Under the helm of Jesualdo Ferreira, the technical staff wants to wait until the injured players finish their rehabilitation programmes to avoid further injuries," Zamalek assistant coach Ismail Youssef told the club's official website.

The team will be on a break for two weeks after the Wednesday game as the competition will be put on hold for 40 days for teams that have more than two international players in order to accommodate for their national team commitments.

Title holders Zamalek have collected seven points from three matches after drawing with Aswan in the second match.
