NEC Nijmegen will have to do without Patrick Demouge for the next six weeks.

The forward picked up a nasty ankle injury during a training-ground clash with Pascal Heije and tests have revealed ligament damage.

Demouge initially thought he had broken his ankle but X-rays ruled that out, only for a scan to reveal ligament damage.

Recalling the chain of events, Demouge said: "I wanted to block him and landed on his foot. Then my ankle collapsed.

"The ankle swelled up immediately and we feared it was broken," he added to De Gelderlander before results of the tests were known.
