Sparta defender Steve Olfers is set to be out of action until Christmas.Sparta have been dealt a blow with the news that Steve Olfers is set to be out of action until Christmas.
The defender tumbled under challenge from Peter Wisgerhof in the weekend encounter with NEC Nijmegen, prompting an immediate trip to hospital.
Scans have revealed ligament damage in his left knee and he has been informed to immobilise the leg for six weeks.
Should Olfers progress at the expected rate he could be fit for the return meeting with NEC on December 30.
