Rool blow for Lens

Lens defender Cyril Rool is set for a spell on the sidelines after he suffered a dislocated shoulder.
The 28-year-old could be out for a couple of weeks with the problem he picked up during their 4-0 defeat at Nice on Saturday.
The news is a blow for Lens boss Joel Muller who needs every man available to try and stop their recent poor run of results.
Lens have won just one of their last seven games, collecting just four points along the way.
Muller will now be without Rool for the visit of Rennes on Saturday as they try to bounce back to winning ways, but at least he has some good news.
Lens will be boosted by the return of a number of players coming back from the African Cup of Nations - with Rigobert Song, Papa Bouba Diop and Diagne Faye all due to be back in time for the match.
