Ismaily goalkeeper Mohamed Awad will be out of action for the game against Angolan side Petro Atletico in second leg of the Confederation Cup 16th round due to incompletion in the player's military conscription papers.

The Dervishes failed to gain a home-field advantage against Petro Atletico on Sunday as they were held to a goalless draw by the Angolan side at Suez stadium.

They will face Petro Atletico in the second leg this weekend in Luanda amid suffering from several key players absences on their frontline as Hosni Abd-Rabou and Amr Solya are injured.

The Egyptian representative in the CAF Confederation Cup will name second choice goalkeeper Mohamed Sobhy in the starting lineup after failing to solve the first choice goalkeeper's military problems.
