CAIRO: Harras Hodoud coach Tarek Al-Ashri will give several youngsters a go while facing FUS Rabat in order to fill the void left by the injuries of some regulars.
Defender Fadi Nagah has been ruled out of the Alexandrian club’s CAF Confederation Cup match after suffering a hamstring tear.
Quartet Ahmed Kamal, Ahmed Abdul-Ghani, Mohamed Mekki and Mohamed Hamed are also on road to recovery and will miss Hodoud’s clash in Morocco on September 12.
The injury-hit squad left Al-Ashri with no option but to bring in new blood ahead of the African tie.
"To deal with the absence of many influential players, I decided to prepare some of the youth players included in our African roster," Al-Ashri told FilGoal.com.
Hodoud lie third in the Confederation Cup Group B with two points, one adrift of second-placed Rabat, two of leaders Tunisia’s Club Sfaxien.
Zambian side Zanaco are languishing at the bottom of the group with a single point.
