Zamalek will have their key players available for Thursday's Cairo derby against Ahly after influential duo Bassem Morsi and Ayman Hefni shrugged off minor complaints ahead of the Egyptian Premier League clash.

Striker Morsi and playmaker Hefni came through Tuesday's training session unscathed after recovering from  muscular injuries.

Forward Mahmoud 'Shikabala' Abdel-Razek and left back Mohamed Nassef were also declared fit, with Zamalek only missing Zambian striker Emmanuel Mayuka, who is yet to win over the club's fans, due to injury as well as suspended right-back Osama Ibrahim, who has been one of their best performers lately.

Zamalek lie third in the Egyptian league table with 34 points, eight behind leaders Ahly, who have played two matches more.
