Egypt duo Ahmed Fathy and Sayed Moawad are set to make their comeback from injury when Ahly take on ENPPI in the Egyptian Premier League on Thursday.

Full-back Fathy was ruled out of Ahli's 2-0 league win over Smouha two days ago due to a pelvic problem as he is now set to reclaim his place at the right flank.

Moawad also managed to overcome a hamstring tear sustained ahead of the African Champions' Club World Cup campaign in December, a setback that sidelined him for three weeks.

Ahly currently top Group A with six points, just one ahead of Arab Contractors – who played out a goalless stalemate with Ittihad of Alexandria a day earlier.
