Braunschweig - Second-placed Eintracht Braunschweig have suffered a major blow as they look to reach the promised land of the German top-flight, with news that left-back will be sidelined for several weeks.

The 26-year-old had not missed a moment of Bundesliga 2 action for his side before being forced off just ten minutes into Monday's clash with 1. FC Kaiserslautern. He will now face a prolonged period in the treatment room after damaging ligaments in his left knee.
