LILLE are set to be without key defender Gregory Tafforeau for around a month.

The player was forced from the field of play during the 1-0 win over Sochaux on Saturday.

A clash shortly after the half-hour mark left Tafforeau in obvious discomfort, and he had to leave the field - with Mathieu Chalme brought on as his replacement.

Tests have revealed damage that is likely to keep him on the sidelines for around a month.

The 26-year-old has been an ever-present this term, and his absence will be a blow to Lille boss Claude Puel.
