Ahly goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy is fit for Sunday's Egyptian Premier League match against Ittihad El-Shorta after recovering from a muscular injury, the club announced on Saturday.

Injury has sidelined the veteran keeper since February, replacing him wtih substitute keeper Ahmed Adel.

"Ekramy has recovered from the muscular tear in his hamstring and is totally fit for the El-Shorta match. The player's participation now depends on the technical staff," Ahly's goalkeeper coach Tarek Soliman told the club's official website.

Gabonese striker Malick Evouna was also available on Saturday's training after returning from his national duty, but Dutch manager Martin Jol is yet to decided if he will be included in the squad for El-Shorta test.

Ahly currently leads the Egyptian league table with 47 points, six ahead of second-placed Zamalek, the champions and Ahly's arch-rivals.
