Nigeria Olympic star Junior Ajayi has recovered in time from an ankle injury to be available for Al Ahly in the Cairo Derby against Zamalek.

The 20-year-old former Shooting Stars forward, who has scored four goals during eight games, missed Ahly's previous two games in the Egyptian Premier league due to the injury.

"Ajayi suffered from a nock in his ankle but he is now fit to return to training, and he is fit for the Cairo Derby," Ahly's doctor said on Friday.

Title-holders and league-leaders Ahly are scheduled to face rivals Zamalek on Thursday, December 29 in the 17th match-day of the Egyptian Premier League.

The Red Devils have 42 points, 11 ahead of Zamalek, who still have three games in hand.
