CAIRO: Ahly defender Wael Gomaa is set for an early recovery from injury as the Cairo club said he should be fit after the Tersana game.
The veteran center-half was ruled out for the rest of the season by Ahly chief physician Ihab Ali last week, following a hamstring injury sustained in the 2-2 draw with ENPPI.
However, Ahly s official site confirmed that the Egypt international will resume full training after Thursday s game.
Gomaa s unexpected return will boost Ahly s backline as the 33-year-old could be available in crucial league matches against Harras Hodoud and Gaish.
Ahly s defense seemed to be struggling in the absence of Gomaa during the weekend s 2-2 draw with Kano Pillars, which saw the Egyptian champions exit the Champions League.
