Dumont despair deepens at Lille

LOSC Lille Métropole captain Stéphane Dumont has been ruled out for another three weeks because of a persistent knee problem.
LOSC Lille Métropole captain Stéphane Dumont has been ruled out for another three weeks because of a persistent knee problem.

Continuing trouble
The 23-year-old is yet to recover fully after surgery during the summer and has not played since being substituted at half-time during the goalless draw against Villarreal CF on 27 September. He had played three times in Ligue 1 prior to that UEFA Champions League outing.

Tafforeau fills in
Dumont will definitely miss the 'home' return against Manchester United FC in Paris on 2 November, after the French side drew 0-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Grégory Tafforeau will continue to wear the captain's armband in Dumont's absence with the hope he can return before the 22 November visit of SL Benfica.
