Ahly midfield duo Hossam Ashour and Rami Rabiaa will remain on the sidelines when the Red Devils take on ENPPI on Thursday.

The pair have been out of action since the season started in December. Rabiaa has a knee injury, while Ashour has muscular issues.

Ahly are also missing striker Emad Meteb and playmaker Walid Soliman due to injury. But winger Sayed Moawad will return after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Despite his recent recovery form a pelvic problem, fullback Ahmed Fathi will not be available for the ENPPI clash as he will be attending the Confederation of African Football (CAF) 2013 awards in Lagos, Nigeria on 9 January.

Fathi was included in CAF's final shortlist for the best African-based player of the year award. He will compete with former Ahly teammate Mohamed Abou-Treika and Nigeria's Sunday Mba.

Ahly currently top Egyptian league Group A with six points after winning two matches against El-Entag El-Harby and Smouha.
