Venue: Arab Contractors Stadium

Referee: Mohamed Adel

Ahly will be looking for another win when they meet Arab Contractors tonight, they seek to close the gap on second-placed Pyramids and leaders Zamalek in an exciting three-horse race for the Egyptian Premier League title.

The Red Devils claimed two successive wins over Gouna and Maqassa to keep in touch with the leading duo in the final stretch of the season, ending a run of disappointing results that included a 2-0 loss to Pyramids.

They have two matches in hand, including the Arab Contractors tie. If they win those games, they will leapfrog Pyramids into second and move to within three points of Zamalek.

Ahly are third on 54 points, five behind Pyramids and nine adrift of Zamalek.

They scraped a 1-0 win over bottom-side Maqassa on Wednesday after producing another below-par display, although they can be excused due to a raft of absences and exhaustion resulting from a packed run of fixtures.

A win for relegation-threatened Arab Contractors will be vital to keep alive their hopes of staying in the top flight. The Mountain Wolves are third from the bottom with 24 points, two adrift of safety with eight matches remaining.

Ahly will most a host of regulars due to injuries, including striker Mohamed Sherif, midfielder Amr El-Sulaya and winger Hussein El-Shahat, who are all ruled out for the rest of the season.

South African forward Percy Tau remains sidelined while right-back Mohamed Hani will not be available due to automatic suspension.
