The Russian club’s next best option, Sergei Pesiakov, has also been out of action for a month after fracturing his foot.

And most recently, third-string goalkeeper Artem Rebrov is out too with the club announcing: “Rebrov sustained practically the same injury that Dykan had. Rebrov will miss at least the next few games.”
