Ivanovic confident Hilario, Turnbull can cover for Chelsea No1 Cech

Branislav Ivanovic admits losing Petr Cech to injury is a blow to Chelsea.

The experienced goalkeeper is out for a month with a calf strain.

"Petr Cech is one of the most important players in our team and of course we will miss him, but it happens in football and we have other very good keepers who have worked very hard for a long time to get a chance," defender Ivanovic told the club's website.

"Hilario and Ross Turnbull are both very good and of course are different but they can do very well.

"There are differences, every player has their quality and when you miss one you have to play with the other guys. It is important when you lose Petr because he is fantastic but we can play with Hilario or Ross and we know we are okay, we trust the guys and we know they are both very good, we will be fine and are not worried."
