Rotan blow for Dnipro

Ruslan Rotan has been sidelined for two weeks and will miss FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk's next UEFA Cup game.

FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk midfield player Ruslan Rotan has been sidelined for two weeks with a hip injury.

UEFA Cup loss
The Ukrainian international sustained the knock during his side's 2-1 defeat by FC Dynamo Kyiv on Monday and will now be unavailable for the next two league games and, crucially, Dnipro's UEFA Cup first-round second leg fixture against Maccabi Haifa FC next Thursday. The Ukrainian side lost 1-0 in the first leg in Israel.

Venhlinskyy return
The 22-year-old's loss is a blow to Dnipro, but coach Yevgen Kucherevskyy has been buoyed by the return of striker Oleh Venhlinskyy who came on as a substitute against Dynamo and made an immediate impact, scoring his side's only goal of the game.
