Perth Glory's Scott Bulloch will be forced to miss up to two weeks after suffering a torn thigh muscle.
The 25-year old had only returned to the Glory line-up from an Achilles injury he sustained prior to this season on the weekend but will now spend more time on the sidelines.
"The unfortunate thing for him is he's missing out this weekend," coach David Mitchell said.
"But it shows the character of the kid, he had a couple of tears in his thigh and he kept on and he's probably going to miss a couple of weeks now, but credit to him, he's done really well."
Bulloch netted in his first game for the season in the 2-0 win in Sydney but will need to sit out the next couple of games before he gets to taste the action again.
