Besides problems with Darko Stanic suspensions, Metalurg has additional concerns before next games in SEHA GSS league and EHF Champions league. Pavel Atman, one of the most important Metalurg's players has torn muscle. He got injured playing for Russian national team on the friendly tournament in Tunisia and it is uncertain how much time will he have to pause.
Metalurg's left back will have to make some additional medical examinations to see how serious injury is. He will surely miss next game versus Vojvodina this weekend.
Besides therapy Metalurg is ready to take Atman to Slovenia where few of their players were on treatment for faster recovery.
Ahead of Metalurg are three important games in EHF's Champions League, two versus Vardar and versus Wacker Thun, so "blues" may at the beginning of December secure place among Last 16.
Cervar's concerns do not end just with Mirkulovski's injury, Stanic's suspension and new Atman's injury. Macedonian vice-champion can't aslo count on Nikola Markoski, who has measles, so probably this month he will not be able to play for the team. Velko Markovski is also on Metalurg's injury list...
