Melbourne Victory defender Adrian Leijer is set to be sidelined for a month with facial injuries after being kicked in the face during the weekend’s 3-1 win over Central Coast.

Leijer was diagnosed on Tuesday with a fractured eye-socket, cheekbone and nose.

The 27-year-old had only been on the pitch for a few minutes against the Mariners on Saturday night when he sustained the injuries.

He came on as a stoppage time substitute for Scott Galloway in the Victory’s win, which pulled them level with the third-placed Mariners on 27 points.
