CAIRO: Ahly coach Hossam Al-Badri revealed that he has been working on improving the Red Devils rearguard ahead of their upcoming Egyptian Premier League game with Gaish on September 11th.

I aim to put an end to our recurrent defensive lapses in the league stoppage period, he told Ahly s official website.

Over the past three games we made quite some mistakes, and I hope we can learn from them.

Ahly beat Ghazl Mahalla 2-0 in their opening game, before defeating Police Union 2-1.

Later on, they drew 1-1 with Harras Hodoud.

The defending champions are now in second place with seven points, several goals behind leaders Petrojet.

Ahly s absentees Emad Meteb, Mohamed Fadl and Ahmed Belal will undergo rehabilitation during the league break either.

Meteb has been sidelined since April, when he sustained a major knee ligament injury while playing for Saudi giants Ittihad in an Asian Champions League game.

The 26-year-old, who spent last season at Ittihad on a loan basis, is set to return to action against Gaish next month.

On the other hand, Fadl is still suffering a hamstring problem while Belal is yet to overcome a groin injury.
