Full-back Cirkovic was subbed on Tuesday due to injury but he trained regularly meanwhile and is available for selection. Leonardo feels muscle pain and is doubtful for Javor game. Newcomer Soumah is getting much better fitness-wise and is expected to play – as a starter or not, remains to be seen.

Miroslav Djukic ahead of Javor match:
- Another important encounter ahead of us as it comes after tough European game. We need to be fully focused as everyone expects us to win tomorrow. We play against serious opposition and they will surely try to get something out of this game. But, we have to come out with a same attitude we had against Olympiacos and I don`t expect us to get into trouble if we are right-minded.
