Moldova look set to be without experienced midfielder Alexandru Gaţcan for the trip to Montenegro after the FC Rostov man failed to recover from an injury sustained on club duty. "This is a huge loss for us, as he is our key midfielder," said coach Ion Caras. "In the friendly against Ukraine [a 1-0 defeat in Kyiv] we had to move Alexandru Epureanu into the middle, and our defence really lacked confidence because of that."
