<strong>Jonathan Blondel</strong> was forced to give the second half against Slask Wroclaw a miss, due to continuing achilles pains. The first symptoms manifested in the eight-day training week in Manchester. Things went from bad to worse from then. An undetermined period of waiting can help this injury.</p>
<p>
<strong>Victor Vazquez </strong>has been suffering from an inflammated right knee as of the training week in Manchester. He was allowed some rest, but unfortunately that didn&#39;t help in this problem. He has also been prescribed some rest. He will be out for at least one month.</p>

Finally, <strong>Sven Dhoest</strong>&nbsp;was confronted with an ankle sprain in the cup game joining the U21s at OHL. He should be able to get back to training on Wednesday. &nbsp;</p>
