Roman Kontsedalov could start in central midfield, with Anton Putsila moving to the right flank in the expected absence of Luton Shelton.
Artem Danilenko could once again start the game up front, despite not managing to continue his earlier goalscoring form.
Anzhi have been nothing short of woeful throughout the course of the season and their luck shows few signs of turning as they fall towards the First Division. This is a team lacking so much that it's impossible to know where to start.
It's been a difficult spell for Volga after beating Rubin a few weeks ago. The team have only scored once in the past 3 games and will be hoping that they manage to find a source of goals to take advantage of Anzhi's inadequacies.
It's difficult to predict an Anzhi win at the best of times this season, so at the worst it becomes laughable. Volga may not be the best side in the league, but they have enough about them to cause Anzhi problems.
