Feyenoord have been boosted by the return of Pieter Collen to full training.
The Belgian defender has missed the last three months with a shoulder injury and lung problem.
Collen missed out on last weekend's trip to Twente, but may feature against Utrecht on Sunday.
Royston Drenthe and Tom Vincken are also back in training, although they have not yet linked up with the first-team squad.
Meanwhile, Excelsior's Luigi Bruins, who will join Feyenoord in the summer, damaged ankle ligaments against Groningen last Friday.
It remains to be seen how long the teenager will need to recover, although it is a major blow to the club's hopes of retaining their top-flight status.
