The Mountaineers played the principal game against Zorya Luhansk last weekend. Luis Castro's men lost the first half, but recovered, got its act together and took the victory from the opponent. Taison suffered a minor head injury, but he's fine now; he could show up against Citizens tonight.

City's last weekend went south when Guardiola's team lost to Norwich 3-1; besides, defenseman John Stones suffered an injury that would not let him resume playing for three or four weeks.
