Coach Gavin Hunt got a major boost ahead of Ahly’s clash on Friday in the CAF Champions League round 16 as he will have at his disposal starmen Kermit Erasmus and Glen Salmon after recovering from their injuries.

Salmon limped off the pitch and had his leg bandaged while Erasmus hurt his knee after suffering a bad tackle in a Cup game against Arrows last Wednesday.

"It was not as serious as was initially feared. Salmon limped off but is fine now. My knee, too, has recovered so we're all going," Erasmus, who was signed by SuperSport last summer coming from Dutch side Feyenoord, told

The international strikers made a quick recovery and were cleared to make the trip to Egypt on Monday to face the six-time African Champions.
