Doncaster Rovers Belles leading goalscorer Liz Hansen last week went under the surgeon's knife to have an operation on her left knee.
The Canadian-born striker has had to deal with the niggling injury throughout the course of the season so far. However it doesn't seem to have hinded her too much as she has hit an impressive 13 goals in just 14 games in all competitions.
The operation was a complete success and Liz will now start work towards her rehabilitation which will be re-assessed in around 6-8 weeks.
On Sunday the Belles booked their place in the Premier League Cup Final with a 3-1 victory over Preston North End and they are confident that Liz will be back in action in time for the Final against Arsenal once she has fully recovered.
Belles Assistant Manager Paul Green said: "This is a blow for both Liz and the club as she is a very important member of the squad. Liz has been playing well and has been key to our early season success.
"The injury, we hope, will only keep her out of action for around eight weeks, therefore missing probably only three or four important games with the Christmas and New Year period approaching.
"So some time in the new year I'm sure that Liz will be back fit and scoring goals for the club as we look to build on our good start to the season."
Everyone at the club wishes Liz well and look forward to seeing her back in a Rovers Belles shirt as soon as possible.
Meanwhile Belles' reserve team midfielder Jessica Hunt recently went under the knife to have her ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) repaired in her right knee.
The cultured midfielder has been out of action since obtaining the injury in a reserve game midway through last season.
However following months of unsuccessful physio treatment it was decided that, in order to cure the injury, an operation was required.
The operation was a complete success and Jess will now start her rehabilitation towards returning to full fitness. Jess is expected to be out of action for around six to nine months.
