GLASGOW Clan have suffered a huge blow ahead of their crucial home games against Cardiff and Milton Keynes this weekend. 

Canadian defenceman Tyson Wilson is likely to be out of action for 2 to 3 weeks after picking up an upper body injury in Belfast.

Furthermore, following last weekend's tough games against Dundee and Coventry, Czech defenceman Michal Gutwald has also sustained an injury which is being assessed daily by the club's medical team.

Gaffer Pete Russell admitted they would be a huge loss to the side.

He said: "After a very hectic festive period we have a few guys carrying knocks. Every team goes through it but we are starting to have a few guys out and playing through pain.

The Gazette:

Big loss...Pete Russell 

"The main one right now is Tyson Wilson who will be missing for a couple of weeks with an upper body injury. He is a big loss on the back end.

"Our medical team are working daily around the clock with other players to keep them on the ice and performing to their highest possible level."
