The midfielder, who has missed the last two games, is not expected back until December at the earliest.

There was good and bad news on the goalkeeper front.

Mark Schwarzer is expected to return against Portsmouth on Saturday, after training with the Socceroos over the past week. However, his deputy Brad Jones will not be available, after injuring ankle ligaments against Aston Villa last week.
