Ahly striker Emad Meteb will be ready to boost Ahly's attacking line against Zambia's Nkana in the African Confederation Cup.

Champions League titleholders Ahly will visit the Zambian champions, who boosted their hopes of a semi-final berth after edging out Etoile 4-3 at home, in the penultimate round of the Confederation Cup group stage on 9 August.

Meteb bruised his leg during Saturday's training session, but according to the club doctor he will be fit for the trip to Nkana.

Midfielder Hossam Ashour has rejoined trainings after recovering from stomach pains and is also ready for the match.

Nkana, who were deated by Zamalek in the Champions League final-16, are currently third of Group B with four points, four adrift of leaders Ahly who will only need a draw in Kitwe to go through.

Ahly have already defeated Nkana in the group stage opener, cruising to a 2-0 home victory back in May.

Eight-time African champions Ahly, who were also ousted from the Champions League last-16 by Libya's Ahly Benghazi, are seeking their first-ever Confederation Cup title.
