36 Lion alumni Junior Ajayi will lead the line as Al Ahly face AS Vita Club in the third round of the CAF Champions League group-stages.
Following the defeat to Simba in the last round, the Reds currently sit third in Group A, just behind AS Vita Club on goal difference.
Pitso Mosimane’s men now need to collect a minimum of seven points from their next four games in order to have a strong chance of reaching the knockout rounds.
This will start with a home game against the Congolese club on Saturday, the game which Pitso believes Al Ahly must win.
However, the Reds will enter the game without the likes of Ali Maaloul, Walid Soliman, Akram Tawfik, Salah Mohsen, Saad Samir, Rami Rabia, and Mahmoud Kahraba.
Goalkeepers: Mohamed El-Shennawy, Ali Lotfi, Mostafa Shobeir.
Defenders: Ayman Ashraf, Mahmoud Wahid, Badr Benoun, Yasser Ibrahim, Ahmad Ramadan Beckham, Mohamed Hany.
Midfielders: Amr El-Sulya, Aliou Dieng, Hamdi Fathi, Hussein El-Shahat, Mohamed Magdy Afsha and Taher Mohamed Taher.
Forwards: Junior Ajayi, Mohamed Sherif, Marwan Mohsen and Walter Bwalya.
