Keeper's injury setback

Last updated : 24 January 2003 By FootyMAD

The Dutch keeper has been out of action since breaking his fourth metatarsal bone after a tackle on Alan Shearer during Fulham's 2-1 defeat at Newcastle on December 21st.

He was due back at the club last week but having consulted a specialist in Holland and discovered the bone has not healed as well as was hoped for, he faces a further month on the sidelines.
