Mat Leckie will be in a race to be fit for the Caltex Socceroos' winner-takes-all playoff qualifier with Honduras after it's been revealed he's struggling with an injury.
His German club Hertha Berlin tweeted that the Aussie winger will miss two games, adding their message of support to the man the fans call "Lecks".
Hertha next play Hamburger this weekend followed by a Europa League clash on Nov 3.
The Bundesliga outfit then play a league game on Monday November 6 which potentially could be Leckie's return, depending on how the injury pans out.
Whatever happens, Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou will be sweating on his winger's fitness.
Though Leckie is suspended for the November 10 (Nov 11 AEDT) first leg clash with Honduras in a winner-takes-all playoff World Cup qualifier, Leckie would be available for the crucial second leg on November 15 in Sydney.
