Report: Pavlenka falls ill ahead of Gladbach

Already beset by injuries, it is now being reported that SV Werder Bremen will have to do without starting keeper Jiri Pavlenka this evening against Borussia Mönchengladbach. 
Four confirmed outs have now, according to one source, become five for SV Werder Bremen in their Friday night fixture away at Gladbach. Hanseatic radio program "buten un bitten" reports that #1 keeper Jiri Pavlenka has fallen victim to the wave of illness permeating the Bremen camp.

SV trainer Ole Werner carries four keepers on his roster, but will likely rely upon 27-year-old Michael Zetterer against the foals. Zetterer has made just one top flight appearance in his career, relieving Pavlenka during a 0-1 loss against Augsburg on the current campaign's 6th matchday.
