RKC Waalwijk are likely to be without Erwin Lemmens for a lengthy spell.
The Belgian keeper broke his nose during Sunday's clash with Heerenveen.
Lemmens was taken to hospital for tests and X-rays also uncovered a fracture to his cheekbone.
The club have yet to pass comment on how long Lemmens will be sidelined for, but the keeper is hopeful of being back in action in around three weeks.
The club have been boosted, though, by the news that Tarik Sektioui, Stephan Keller and Ricky van den Bergh have returned to training following injury.
