Sydney FC are hopeful a number of players will be fit to return for this weekend’s Unite Round at Allianz Stadium and over the course of the coming next few weeks.
Here’s a summary of the latest from the physio room for both the Isuzu-UTE and Liberty A-League squads and when we can expect to see our stars back on the park.
Jack felt his calf during the first half against Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium last weekend. He has had scans which have revealed a tear.
He will undergo rest before undertaking a rehabilitation program and is expected to remain on the sidelines for a number of weeks.
Robert had soreness in his groins just after half time and came off the field against Brisbane Roar. He has seen the doctor and undergone scans. They have revealed a low-level injury and we are working towards the Melbourne Victory game for a return.
Corey sustained an injury to his hip flexor muscle during a tackle in the second half against Brisbane Roar. A scan has revealed no damage and he is available to play this weekend.
Joel sustained a foot injury in a tackle at the end of the game at Brisbane Roar. An x-ray has revealed no fracture but he damaged the joint on his big toe. He is likely out for six weeks.
Anthony has commenced full training after rolling his ankle against Wellington Phoenix. He is expected to be available for Saturday’s clash with Adelaide United.
Liberty A-League Women
Cortnee tweaked her calf muscle and has missed the last two games as a precaution to avoid further more serious injury.
She could return in one of the next two games against Western United on Sunday or Central Coast Mariners next Wednesday night at Leichhardt Oval.
Shea sustained a broken foot before the game against Brisbane Roar before Christmas.
She is hopeful to return to training in the next couple of weeks with a view to playing in four weeks.

She is hopeful of returning at the start of February.
Fiona has undergone surgery for a torn lateral collateral ligament injury in her knee.
She is expected to be out for the remainder of the regular season.
Natalie is continuing her rehab following ACL surgery. Her rehab has been going very well and she has commenced light gym and knee strengthening exercises.
