    Kehl facing five-week ban

    Borussia Dortmund's troubled season took a new twist when they learned that midfielder Sebastian Kehl faces a five-week suspension for being sent off in the 3-0 away defeat to VFL Bochum.
    German international Kehl had already missed six games at the beginning of the campaign for picking up a red card during a League Cup game when he pushed the referee, but the youngster appears to have failed to learn his lesson and received his marching orders on Sunday for kicking his opponent Thomas Zdebel.

    Further bad news came for the Westfalenstadion side earlier in the week when it was confirmed that skipper Dede will miss the club's next two games with an ankle problem he picked up at the weekend.

    In a season plagued by long-term injuries to several key players, Dortmund coach Matthias Sammer has often been forced to field a second string side and was knocked out of the qualifying stages of the UEFA Champions League.
